The New Fine Print
Clauses for Contracts in 2021

Attendee Experience
Tips From Wings Event Engineers
DON’T Expect 100% attendance.
DO Plan for at least a 30% attrition of those that are registered. Our Event EngineersTM recommend keeping registration open to let potential attendance exceed your goal to make up for the inevitable event-day drop. 

DON’T Let your attendees get ‘Zoom fatigue’. 
DO Create engagement opportunities utilizing the gamification, polling and other interactive tools offered by the platform.

DON’T Assume every attendee has attended a digital event before or that attendees know how to navigate the platform or virtual environment. 
DO Leave enough time for attendees to get acquainted with the platform before the event is live. Create logical and intuitive navigation guides and take time to fully prep your Help Desk staff.
