Meeting planning is stressful enough without leaving onsite check-in to chance on the first day of your event. For many meeting and event planners, the arrival of attendees is a nerve-wracking experience--this after the months it takes to organize trade shows, conferences, board meetings and so on. Research even shows that attendees themselves find the prospect of checking-in to an event to be incredibly stressful. So what's the cure for all this onsite "agita?"

Deliver the Modern Experience Attendees Expect

Attendees expect seamless experiences at every touch point before, during, and after your events (this is especially true if you already utilize event management technology). Onsite, this starts with a quick and modern check-in experience. Cvent OnArrival 360 enables you to check in attendees, register walk-ins, process payments, collect signatures, and print name badges on-demand. You can even let attendees check themselves in with the user-friendly kiosk mode.

The benefits are undeniable. You’ll shorten your check-in lines, reduce staff needed at the registration desk, and start your event off on the right foot. As attendees move through your event, they’ll be attending sessions, visiting exhibitor booths, watching demos, and more. OnArrival 360 helps you capture that information in an unobtrusive way, too, so you can identify the best leads and get them off to your sales team efficiently (a marketer's dream come true). The positive impact doesn't stop there.

Get Real-Time Event Data When You Need It

For planners (and marketers) the need to continually improve – and prove – the impact of your events is a never-ending cycle. Proving success all starts with the right data. Cvent OnArrival 360 provides real-time insight into event performance. Make on-the-fly improvements onsite and track attendees throughout your events for a deeper understanding of contacts and more relevant follow-up.

This also helps you improve your events by providing keen insights on what sessions are most popular with your attendees, and which ones you may want to retire.  Having a holistic view of your events can help you make data-driven decisions to improve them year after year.

Ready for a cure to the "check-in blues" and modernize your onsite event experience?  Learn more about OnArrival 360.
