With Attendee Interactive, your team can seamlessly solicit stronger speakers with expert management.
We’ve been doing this for more than twenty years and are confident we know what it takes to love your content submissions and celebrate the speakers, educators, and planners who turn that content into memorable and meaningful events.
An ode to easy content management
What does easy content management look like?
It’s not only organization and a user-friendly process, it’s the ability to connect with the right people who will deliver the right content to your audience.
Ultimately, an easy or simplified content management system should help your team source strong speakers who, by definition, will provide your attendees with strong content. And strong content is where your association will realize increased ROI.
Rules of attraction: how to connect with strong speakers
Sourcing strong speakers for your next event is easier with technology that takes your — and their — efforts to the next level.
In addition to a simplified and streamlined content management platform, Attendee Interactive’s event management solutions support meaningful and engaging networking opportunities. By providing your speakers with the tools they need to interact with attendees, before, during and after your event, you empower them to take greater ownership of their role within your event.
In our experience, when people feel integral to an experience, they tend to bring more to the table.
So, how can you simplify content management in order to secure and support strong speakers?
Before your event…
Make the time to reach out to your speakers before the event and allow them to preview the schedule. During this time, you can offer to review their session content and do a few trial runs using the technology. In particular, you can test the interactive options like attendee polling, which can do wonders to increase engagement.
During your event…
Establish your team as a presence standing by to support your speakers, whether on the ground or virtually.
Following your event…
Solicit some feedback from attendees by distributing a survey, which you can then share with your speakers. You’ll also want to ensure that attendees and speakers are able to connect on a platform. This platform should provide messaging, discussion forums, and the ability to engage on relevant industry topics, post-event.

Check out this Valentine from Kristina Mechelic, CMP, Association for Financial Professionals:
❦ I’ve enjoyed working with Attendee Interactive over the last few years. Their program makes it easy to plan out my annual city wide with over 200 functions. Every time I share my specs with vendors and partners, I always get compliments on how the information is so organized and easy to understand. That is in part to how I’m able to import information and formulate the kind of spec book I need to make sure everything is accounted for. ❦
