So long snail mail! See ya later pen and paper! Gone are the days where event managers and event production companies rely on humble tools to effectively manage their events. Technology has not only immersed itself into our daily event-planning lives, but it has almost replaced every management system we use in planning ours, as well as our clients’ events. Paperless post, emails and ipdas have reinvented the way we manage our day to day lives and events. Think you want to hop on board the technology train for your next event? Here are our go-to online tools that will help you plan your next occasion!
Online ticketing websites such as Eventbrite allow you to plan, promote and sell tickets to your event with ease! Eventbrite is essentially a self-service online ticketing and registration platform for events, of all scales. Event hosts can easily organise their event online by filling in all relevant details, and publish the event across soother social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter! Thinking of planning that gala dinner for 500 people? Your ticketing woes are now well taken care of!
We’ve all been there. The photographer took the BEST photo which you are desperate to upload online to every social media platform – you ask the photographer and he ‘promises’ to send it to you asap. You end up waiting…and waiting…and waiting…and still weeks later no photo. Now you will have photo FOMO (fear of missing out) no longer!! FREE online app CapsuleCam is the number one photo sharing app that allows groups of friends and family (or even suppliers and clients) to automatically upload photos from an event, and imports them into one shared album. No more chasing people for photos – you simply have to ask all those involved in the event to download the app – and you’ll have all the photos at your fingertips!
Everyone, who is anyone these days has a social media account of some sort. Social media is a particularly useful tool for event planning, particularly if you’re marketing costs are limited, or if you want to reach a particular demographic (social savvy hispters anyone?). Some ways in which we, at LTL utilise social media as an event production tool range from creating an event or client hashtag (#LAVAZZAAUS), advertising pre and post production snippets that highlight the magic of the event, and sneaky uploads showing what’s coming next! The possibilities are literally endless, and we are constantly inspired by what we see on Instagram, Pintrest, Tumbler and more! There’s no denying the power of social media. #watchthisspace.
