Why Should I Check-in Event Attendees?
The primary reason to check-in attendees is to determine what your attendees thought about your event's content and organization. Marketing assessment and metrics are additional reasons you should check-in attendees.
You plan and conduct an event; how do you find out how it was received by your audience? How can you show your sponsors/exhibitors your attendance metrics so that they will want to work with you on future events?
Upon check-in, the registrant's record is switched to Attended. This check-in process creates three sets of people:
- Attended - find out what they thought of your event with a post-event survey
- Registered but did not attend - this is your no-show list - find out why they did not attend with a post-event survey
- Invited but did not register - find out why they did not register with a post-event survey
You can send different post-event surveys to each of these three groups.
In addition to the Kiosk check-in process, make sure you send your event's mobile app to your attendees. It automatically contains a barcode that can be scanned at the door. No name badge is required; the barcode is in the app.
