5 important event trends
The way people experience an event is very important, as this is what they will remember when talking about the event. There are a lot of new event trends that are linked to the experience of visitors.
People become more aware of what is happening around them. So, thinking of special aspects and integrating those trends is very important when it comes to the perception of every individual. The following trends are linked to the experience of the attendees and the changing needs of people. These can be the key to your success when organizing an event for your clients.
JOMO is the opposite of the well-known FOMO, which is fear of missing out, whereas jomo is the joy of missing out. By adding guilt-free breaks to the program you can fulfill this aspect. Furthermore, this helps the attendees to switch off for a moment. And, it will stimulate and motivate people so they can focus better after such a break.
Passive engagement: passive engagement is very important for your event. Keep your attendees informed and engaged with passive engagement technologies, for example, RFID, NFC or beacon technology. However, it can also be something very simple such as the specific layout of a room that creates more interaction.
This is all about the attendee’s journey, which in the ideal case is immersed, fun and educational. Each component of the planning process is just as important for the bigger picture and the final perception of the individual’s experience.
Tailored experiences/ personalization: all experiences and what happens during the event should be linked to the company’s vision and objective. Use a theme and trigger interaction between the attendees by having a share box photobooth or planning fun quizzes.
Bleisure: the combination of business and pleasure. Spain is a very good location for Bleisure. We have already organized some Bleisure events in the past.
Unique venues: use unique venues to make the event special and memorable. For example, try an indoor or outdoor location, plan an event in a museum, football stadium or ship, organize a tour at a winery in Spain or invite the guests to a rooftop party.
Content Design: content design is the art of giving purpose to each stage of the program. You can use storytelling to make the event interesting and catch the attendee’s attention.
Midsize cities are getting more popular: choosing a less popular event destination that doesn’t have a big name like Amsterdam or Barcelona can still have a lot to offer. Check our destination page to find some inspiration of what different cities have to offer.
Include the 5 senses for events
Another very important point that is one of the event trends you need to know in 2019 are using the senses in events. Our 5 senses have an impact on the event design: sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell.
The 5 senses affect people’s emotions, which can be the final touch that will make it a memorable event. EVENTÔIR’s mission is to create unique and memorable experiences, thus, to create experiences that incorporate the 5 senses. This can be done by using the above-mentioned aspects and new event trends like tailored experiences, leisure, unique venues, content design, activities, and midsize cities. By making a personalized event organization for you and your company, we will make sure to hit all those 5 senses and give you the ultimate experience.
Talking about event trends you need to know in 2019, sustainability has to be mentioned. It has been a significant topic for the past few months or even years. Sustainability is to avoid the depletion of natural resources to maintain an ecological balance. Being sustainable is not only of high importance for the individual, but it also applies to the event industry. We all want to contribute to a better environment.
Therefore, we use sustainable venues, for example, hotels such as QO hotel, Arendshoeve or KIT, as these venues focus on sustainability. Click here to find more information about how we can incorporate more sustainability into your next event.
Ethical food: this incorporates the moral consequences of any food choice you make, for example, eating organic, vegan or plant-based diets. It is an upcoming trend because people are getting more aware of what they eat and where the food comes from.
Food concepts: high food quality, in combination with a unique experience. Click here to read about the unusual dinner that was set up in the sky. We organized this for our client and they spoke highly of it.
