How to measure event success

Everyone who works with events can recognise the frustration of not being able to measure and prove their success accurately. Sure, we've all heard of event ROI, and it's common for many companies to use this metric to calculate what the organiser has received in return for their event. Still, there's no standardised way of measuring ROI, and this metric only answers half of the question. To this day, the common assumption is that every event is unique, and thus there can be no common nominator for measuring event success. In this blog post, we discuss the factors that affect event measurability and offer an entirely new perspective on the topic.

Organise webinars in Lyyti with your online meeting software

Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Google meet are a few of the most popular online meeting softwares. We have all grown familiar with their usage in the past months and years as we arrange more and more meetings online. Even though they are excellent in holding meetings, online meeting softwares are not fully capable of transitioning your in-person events to online and lack many critical features.

Identify your event types

The content and set-up of every event are unique. This could be one reason why so many organisations find it challenging to understand the relevance of events in their business. There can be a distinctive goal and purpose behind every event, yet sometimes the actual follow-up of these goals and purposes is left out, thus leaving the costs as the only concrete outcome.

Small and local events – who they are for and why you should have them

What exactly comes to mind when you consider event marketing as a concept? A packed arena with international artists and big speakers, surrounded by top notch light and sound systems? If this is the case, you’re probably not alone. We can all agree that without a doubt, large-scale events are impressive and memorable. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that they’re the only way to success. In fact, many organisations have started to invest in events that are local and more exclusive, because there are certain risks that can be avoided and significant benefits to be gained in events of a smaller scale. Especially now when we’re bound by strict regulations and recommendations, smaller events are something every event professional should consider.
