Top 3 cutting-edge event planning ideas every destination management company needs to know about

Many destination management companies struggle to provide interesting travel, entertainment, and event programming services for large groups, especially when they are serving a large out of town company with hundreds or thousands of event attendees.  Destination management companies strive for event planning solutions that will make their event programming worthwhile and extraordinary, while also saving them time and money. 

On top of that, the world of event planning is very competitive, and DMCs need an edge to stay ahead – and to stay relevant. To do so, DMCs need to think tech-forward and implement an event planning software, like Mixtroz, into their game plan. 

How Mixtroz can help any DMC plan effective, engaging, and effortless events 

Event planners turn to Mixtroz when they are planning an event because they know this event planning platform will make their event dynamic. Mixtroz brings a convention to the next level using three factors: 

  1. An easy app-based tool guides attendees through your event experience. 
  2. Productive and meaningful networking increases attendee satisfaction. 
  3. Automated tracking of event attendee behavior allows DMCs to keep up with how the event is progressing. 

The Mixtroz event planning software makes event goals that much easier to attain, helping with seating arrangements, networking, and data collection while also keeping track of where attendees are in the event experience and how satisfied they are. 

Effortless seating arrangements 

Meeting new people at organized corporate events is extremely awkward for most people. The challenge for putting together such an event is cutting through the awkwardness so that people attending can have a good time. Thus, the seating arrangements and attendee groupings become crucial to the enjoyment of everyone involved!

Event planners usually use traditional methods of grouping attendees similar to seating charts for weddings, or even grouping by alphabet or random attendee number. Some DMCs spend hours creating algorithms and spreadsheets to mix and match clusters of attendees. Mixtroz takes over this aspect of planning for the event with great success

Using the information gathered from event attendees via a user-friendly app, people are grouped instantaneously and with purpose – saving so much time!

So much more than seating arrangements – create meaningful connections and increase event enjoyment

The Mixtroz platform collects essential data, given by the event attendees, to create a valuable community among a large gathering of people.

Event planners can use the client’s goals to create questions or select from a bank of questions for the attendees to answer in the Mixtroz event app. Then the event organizer can use the Mixtroz platform to group people based on their answers. Using this data, they can group the people at their event in numerous ways with ease. The data collected via the app helps arrange attendees, and it helps create the icebreaker questions that get conversations and connections growing. 

The icebreaker questions in the app help attendees find things they have in common and share ideas. The resulting ease of communication enhances collaboration and brainstorming – and makes for a more enjoyable experience. 

Through planned networking, more meaningful connections are made, which means more attendee satisfaction and, therefore, more client satisfaction. 

Gather data to improve future convention programming

The data collected from attendees by the Mixtroz platform sheds light on what they enjoyed most about the event programming and what could be changed or enhanced for future events. For example, you may want to know more about the types of gatherings attendees find most valuable: networking-oriented, experiential, or freestyle-type events. The Mixtroz event planning software allows you to gather data that you can act on after your events. 

Another tool for your event planning toolbox

We know that the event planning industry is facing shrinking budgets as expenses keep rising. Additionally, event planners are dealing with longer and longer hours to meet the high standards of their clients. Mixtroz saves event planners hours of their precious time, which means they save money in their ever-shrinking event budgets. 

Just as you have a go-to vendor for florists, decorators, tour operators, and caterers, you should also have Mixtroz as a go-to vendor for event planning ease. Add Mixtroz to your toolbox when putting together your convention programming for more original and cutting-edge event experiences that will put your DMC at the top of your game!
