Engaging First-Time Conference Attendees

Engaging First-Time Conference Attendees: 4 Tactics to Try

Of course you want to provide an exceptional experience for ALL of your conference attendees, but ensuring that happens for your first-time attendees is particularly important. Their decision to attend future events (and possibly even renew their membership) depends heavily on that first experience, so going the extra mile for those folks, in particular, is certainly worth it.

What does “going the extra mile” for your first-time attendees look like? Here are a few tactics worth trying:

Small Staff? BIG Opportunities at #ASAE18!

Posted by Callie Walker

Small-Staff Opportunities at ASAE18

The American Society of Association Executives’ 2018 Annual Meeting is right around the corner, and if you’re a small-staff association professional, there are BIG things in store for you!

Be on the lookout for the following…

The Small-Staff Reception and Small-Staff Shindig

What would a great conference be without a few stellar networking parties in the evenings? On Sunday, August 19 at 5 p.m., be sure to check out the Small-Staff Reception (hosted by MemberClicks!) in room W192A of McCormick Place. (Food, drinks, swag, awesome people - need we say more?)

Then, at 6 p.m., follow us on over to 2Twenty2 Tavern for our all-time favorite event: The Small-Staff Shindig! There, you’ll find even more food and drinks, games (giant Jenga, anyone?), a live band (bring your dancing shoes!), and the amazing company of your fellow small-staff association pros! Seriously, this is one party everyone RAVES about, so don’t miss it! (RSVP here!)

The Small-Staff Lounge

While you’re hopping from breakout session to breakout session, be sure to squeeze in some time to visit the Small-Staff Lounge, located in room W471B of McCormick Place. There you’ll find…

  • Food
  • Drinks
  • Charging stations (Insert “raised hands” emoji here)
  • Free swag
  • Comfortable couches and chairs
  • S I L E N C E (Which can be so hard to come by at such a big conference. And we know you have to catch up on work at some point…)

And as if all of that isn’t tempting enough, we’ll also be giving away free tickets to MC LIVE!, a three-day conference for association and chamber professionals in October! Just come by and drop off a business card for your chance to win!

A software solution FOR small-staff associations

You already know the trade show floor at ASAE Annual is going to be BIG. So if you’re in the market for a software solution for your small-staff association, jot down booth 517. That’s where MemberClicks will be, and we’ve been working with small-staff associations for the past 20 years. In fact, in 2015, we rebuilt an all-in-one membership solution from the ground up FOR small-staff organizations. Come see it in action and learn how it can help take your organization to the next level.

Like we mentioned, ASAE Annual is BIG, and you better believe there are big opportunities for small-staff association pros! (Click here for more about MemberClicks’ involvement and opportunities to be on the lookout for!)
