5 event technologies to impress your audience

Of”Cores is happy to share five creative event technologies tailor-made for you that will surely surprise more than one of your attendees.

If you’re looking for an unusual and unique way to impress your audience at every stage of their event experience, we’ve put together everything you need!

Here are out-of-the-box ideas to make your event one to remember:

1.    Innovative fridges: visually appealing information

Of”Cores makes the most of digital screens to display visual information during an event such as programme, video clips, food menu or specific branding. For instance, a brand-new event technology from LG in partnership with Novid displayed the food menu on every fridge at BAM Marketing Congress in December. Attendees simply choose their selection by looking at the fridge and then take their food out of the designated place.

2.    Facial recognition registration: cutting-edge first impression

You want to make your event even more appealing? Impress your attendees from the start with the facial recognition registration. This event technology is used more and more for fast and cutting-edge check-in experience. The guests can therefore register before the event by taking a selfie with their own electronic device or using their social media profiles. This technology still being very new, Of’’Cores would be delighted to support you so your company can be one of the first to offer it!

3.    Throwable mic: event technology and fun

Let’s surprise the attendees by drawing their attention to a soft, throwable mic. While stage mic is made to be used on the stage, audience mic is thrown into the air when someone has a question. It’s not just faster, you also make your event fun. This cutting-edge event technology encourages the people to take part and break the ice. In addition, Of’’Cores will personalise your throwable mic with your company or event branding to make a lasting impression. If you catch it, you’ll adopt it!

4.    3D audience body scan: techy souvenir

If you’re looking for a customised goodie to offer your guests along with a fun experience, the Treedy’s body scanner might be a great fit. This revolutionary device is brought to you by a Belgian 3D body scanning technology provider. 3D capture technology is made for scanning human body in order to provide body measurement. Applied to events, their 3D image is then sent by email to the guests and they can even print it as a figurine!

5.    A LEDwall system for modular aluminium frames

Novid has developed a LEDwall in order to make interactive and creative booth solutions. It has a high resolution and an indoor and outdoor use. This is why every rental company needs.

Interesting in taking your event to the next level?

Destination in the spotlight: Croatia

Exploring and screening destinations pro-actively is an important part of our mission. Event professionals need to know as many destinations as possible, and as detailed as possible, this in order to consult to their customers perfect-fit destinations and venues for their projects.

On this occassion we screened a destination more to the Western part of Europe. We have to say we made a very good choice! We visited Croatia, more specificaly the Dalmatian region. What a discovery!

In this article we highlight the city of Split as well as Hvar island, a hidden gem with potential for residential seminars over the next years.

Split:

Split is the 2nd biggest city in Croatia and located at the Adriatic Sea. A city easily reachable by its own airport with direct flights from all over Europe (during high season). Split airport is also building a brand new terminal, and therefor we expect an even more spectacular increase soon in terms of flight connections.

The old town of Split is a Unesco Heritage site since 1979 and definitely worth a visit.

In terms of international hotels we selected Le Méridien Lav, a 5* resort in Podstrana which is only 8 km away from the centre of Split. The resort is located at the seaside and has his own marina.

Also foodies will find their way around this hotel as it boasts 7 restaurants and bars on-site! Since July their private beach club opened as well.

Le Méridien Lav is not only an ideal destination for leisure, but as it houses the largest conference venue in town, it is also the ideal venue for your business meetings. The largest function room can take up to 800 persons in theatre style and 450 for banquets. Additionally it has 7 break-outs rooms and a terrace that complete the conference centre.

And If you want to try your luck, you can now also visit the casino which opened  recently and is located in the same building as the hotel.

Hvar:

Next to the mainland, Croatia consists of over a thousand of Islands, of which the largests are Cres and Krk. Although the most well-known is Hvar. Some famous celebrities like Beyoncé, Tom Cruise and Bono are spending their holidays on this island every year.

Coastal Experience hosted us on a boat trip and we had a first stop-over in the harbour of Hvar. After a pleasant walk with a lot of stairs, the breathtaking view we got at the fortress was totally worth the effort! The whole fortress can be rented out for the organization of events, and hosting your guests here for a walking dinner after a conference in Le Meridien will be an unforgettable experience. The rental fee for the fortress is more than reasonable, and the possibilities are endless!

Also, a Four Seasons hotel is under cunstruction on the island, a next step in the development of the destination.

We discovered many potential venues in Split & Hvar as well as over the other islands.

Discovering a destination with true potential for our customers really excites us, and we were trully impressed by Split and the surrounding islands.

Still looking for your next meeting destination? Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!

How to build a successful event website

Your event website is an essential part of your event marketing strategy. It gives your attendees the first impression on your event: consider it as part of the overall experience.

The website generally acts as the core repository for online information about the event. Besides creating awareness, its objective over time is also to drive registrations to your event.

Whether you decide to work with your in-house webmaster or an external trusted expert, keep in consideration that having a knowledge of the event business can really make a difference when designing the event website. Having an effective website will put your event on your potential attendees’ top of mind.

Here are some key tips on how to design an effective website for your next congress or conference.

1. Provide immediate information

A good website navigation can sensibly impact registration rates. The expected information must be found within a few clicks: if your visitor is looking for the timing of the event, he should get this information within a few seconds.

A typical navigation menu will comprise of:

An attractive landing page highlighting the value proposition of your event
Speakers presentation with pictures, biography, links to their social profiles or websites
Programme agenda displaying the streams, rooms, speakers and highlighting any networking opportunities
Registration information including pricing and how to sign up
Sponsors section showcasing your partners logo and links to their websites
Practical information including date, travel and hotel arrangements
About section and contact information about the organiser
Legal information: copyright, cancellation policy and legal terms
Other optional sections including press and media page or a blog

2. Connect with interactive features

To enable your guests to already network days before the event, think about including a section that promotes your event App and link to the App Store or Android Store where the guests can download it straightly. Another option would be to place a QR code to be scanned on-screen.

Social Hubs like Pictawall also enable visual conversations within your participants thanks to an aggregated social media online wall. Find an example here.

Be sure to mention how the participants can connect with the organiser, with social media icons linking to your main social networks for example.

3. Create valuable and eye-catchy content

The content must be informative and include sufficient call to action to convert an interested visitor. Pictures and videos from past editions are great opportunities to share the atmosphere of your conference through a past edition.

Once the event has passed, maintain the website updated at all times to keep the conversation going with post-event information such as presentations, video interviews, press coverage and pictures.

4. Adjust technical features that will make your good website great

By 2018, it’s expected people will spend more than two and a half hours on their phones and an hour and 20 minutes on their computers*. Responsive design – allowing your website to adapt to the device your users are viewing it on – is a must!

While images must be qualitative, consider optimising their size to reduce the load time. The readers don’t want to wait to get the information they need.

5 venues to organise an event in Belgium

How to deal with venue search for small events…

Each city has numerous directories of event venues online, but Internet can be very misleading. When looking into a venue for smaller events, qualitative hotel brands are often safe choices as they generally respond to a list of standards. Obviously, we always recommend visiting your selected venue before contracting it, but we understand that it might not always be feasible for smaller projects. Your knowledge of the industry and negotiation skills will help you to find the best value for money. Anybody could contract a venue for a smaller project: you will be confronted to some pitfalls but the damage will remain limited.

…to large congresses

But what about large congresses, meetings, conferences, trade shows? The number of venues suitable for large events is limited; each property has its own strategy, limitations, opportunities, terms and conditions. This complex landscape requires support from specialists: without a thoughtful experience, you might face negative surprises and pay each mistake in cash. Once the contract is signed, there is no way back and that one signature might have a huge impact on additional, sometimes hidden, venue costs, but also on catering, technical requirements, decoration, transportation, security and cleaning.

We’ve made you a selection of 5 large event venues in Belgium. In case you need support to organise your event, our specialists provide event services for short to long-term projects.

Advice from an event manager for your EU institutional event

10 golden rules from our expert in institutional events

If you’re considering organising an event, the following advice might be useful to you.

1 – Negotiate and communicate continuously with suppliers since the beginning.
It is time consuming but essential to the success of your project! Select the right suppliers for the right mission, nowadays you only want to work with experts. Your weakest supplier might be a real threat to the success of your project.

2 – Organise a site inspection at the venue.
This allows you to better visualise the event and its floor plan and establish the overall schedule.

3 – If hosting a series of events, try to host them in the same venue.
It will help you reducing your costs and investment. In addition, they might make you an interesting offer the following year.

4 – Look for any public event that could harm yours.
What’s going on the same day as your event? If your event takes place in the Brussels EU area, ensure there is no European Summit on this day.

5 – Optimise your costs.
If your dates are flexible, try to select calmer days. This will allow you to negotiate better deals with suppliers. In case it takes place during the peak season, make sure to book all suppliers a long time in advance. Sometimes investing in technology can also save a lot of money, as it contributes to increase your overall efficiency.

European event organisation - Translation services6 – Build your suppliers network.
A/V companies, catering, translation services, photographers, video crew, venues, goodies… Maintaining a trustful relationship with all your suppliers is crucial. You need suppliers that will go the extra mile for you, that think together on how to add value to your event. Everything moves so fast nowadays that your network of suppliers is a crucial element in order to set up a top-notch project.

7 – SPOC is his name.
A SPOC, Single Point Of Contact, will make your life much easier! If you want to outsource a bunch of tasks, make sure you can outsource them to one person who understands your needs and who will deal with any kind of issues.

8 – Manage administrative tasks on a daily basis.
Never neglect your administrative duties. A close follow-up of your in/out invoices and a rigorous monitoring of the financial stability of the event are especially relevant.

9 – Get prepared to organise travel & hotel arrangements.
Your guests, VIP’s and speakers might need support before and during their stay.

10 – Increase the reach of your event.
Live broadcast, webinar, presentation sharing… Engage your audience and allow guests to participate even if they are not able to join physically.

Working as a Project/Communications Manager at a European institution?

You probably know how difficult it is to deal with event management & event communications, as events are typically challenging peaks throughout the season. Your organisation doesn’t necessarily have the resources to hire one or several full-time employees to fill these gaps, you might be interested in the services of an event manager. Freelancer, short-term contract or task force, your challenge is to find the right person – without making any compromise on the quality of your event!

You need to plan working groups, press conferences, member state visits, internal meetings or VIP dinners but don’t know how to manage?

Of’’Cores provides worldwide event services for short to long term projects. Our experts in domains such as event management, event marketing and communications and event technology can assist your organisation on a specific or recurring event, with no obligation to collaborate on the long term.

Destination in the spotlight: Portugal

Portugal, located in the Southwestern of Europe and part of the so-called Iberian Peninsula, famous for his port-wine and Cristiano Ronaldo. A great destination for both business and leisure. In this article we will highlight a few spots located at approximately 30 km from Lisbon: Sintra & Cascais.

Cascais:

Cascais is a coastal town and a former fishermen village, and it is the perfect getaway after a busy meeting in Lisbon.

Located at only 30 minutes from Lisbon, it’s the perfect spot to relax after some heavy days of work.
It may not be surprising that Biarritz (France) is one of the sister towns of Cascais, both are well-known by the adepts of all kinds of surfing. The place to be to practice these sports are at the Guincho coast, also known for good and high quality fish restaurants.

Along the coast side the Farol Design Hotel is a hidden gem. Modern, trendy, splendid views overlooking the sea and spacious bedrooms. It’s a great escapade after a trip to Lisbon to relax and enjoy the weather. There are many restaurants in the neighborhood, but you should also try their own kitchen. At lunchtime they serve excellent sushi’s at the poolside bar.

Sintra:

Sintra is famous for it’s Unesco Heritage site “Parco da Pena”.

A walk through this breathtaking parc will take you up to it’s beautifull Palacio and Castelo dos Mouros. As the Palacio is located at the top of a (small) mountain, it may disappears entirely on a cloudy day. You may feel like being in a fairy tale when entering and your guests might do so too, because the venue can be rented for events!

If you are looking more for the combination golf, spa & resort for your meeting and all this in a venue with an historial setting, you might like the Penha Longa Resort. Located not far from Sintra and only a 30-minute drive from Lisbon Airport.

The hotel is built on the grounds of an old monastery and entirely renovated with respect for it’s history. Some of the function rooms are situated in the former monastery. Your guest will surely be impressed when you let them enter by the church!
With 5 in-house restaurants, there’s no need to exit the resort for lunch or dinner. Two of them are in collaboration with the 2-star Michelin chef Sergi Arola.
The hotel disposes of 194 bedrooms and can be entirely privatised.
