How to Get Millennials Excited About Your Corporate Event ~ Cottages by the Bay
Did you know that millennials are taking over the workforce? That’s right – by 2020, 75% of the workforce will be millennials. It’s likely that you work with some now since they fall into the 23-38-year-old age range. If you’re planning a corporate event, then it’s important to ensure millennials are included in the planning activities. Staying engaged with this demographic is easier than you think! Here are a few tips on how to get millennials excited about your corporate event. Your event will be rocking and rolling in no time!
- We all want authentic experiences, and it’s no surprise that millennials do too. They want to feel like they are a part of the event, and not just in spirit. Not only that, but they love sharing these authentic experiences online. Create an engaging way for your attendees to share the event on social media with a hashtag, contest, or sharable content generated from a photobooth or video shoot. This also creates user-generated content for you to then repost (with their permission, of course!)
- The best way to create an engaging moment is with a unique venue. Everyone can go to a convention center or hotel ballroom, but a unique venue really sets the tone for the type of event. Creating a unique space that keeps everyone engaged is key! For an event space unlike any other, our friends across the way at Destin Bay House™ offer a stunning waterfront venue in Destin with enough indoor and outdoor space to accommodate just about any size group. Everyone is sure to be feeling relaxed and energized in no time!
- Have you heard of event apps? CrowdCompass, AgendaPop, and Attendify are just some of the iPhone apps on the market that helps attendees engage with each other during the corporate event. Since millennials spend a good amount of time on their phones (not that this is a bad thing!), creating an event they can tune into with content and schedules is a great way to help them engage. You can also go another route and create a custom app for your event. It does take a little extra work, but will be worth it in the long run!
