“Kim not only takes you through a step by step process of getting people to both register and turn up to your event, she also generously shares loads of samples of the materials she uses herself to make the process work as smoothly as possible.
As if that wasn’t enough we also got time to workshop our own upcoming event and get Kim’s guru events brain to give us insights and suggestions to maximise the attendance at our own event. A very worthwhile day.”
The #1 greatest fear people have when planning events is “What if no-one turns up?” Most events struggle to reach their capacity, even if they have a great concept people aren’t RSVPing and if they do RSVP they don’t attend on the day.
In this half day session I will show you how Venues 2 Events fill events, create a waitlist and have people lining up to attend our next event, without spending money on advertising. This is an introductory session to our full day workshop “How to get people to attend your event”.
WHY AM I RUNNING THIS HALF DAY WORKSHOP?
I want to get up close and personal with you! Often at events, I am on stage presenting and I don’t have the opportunity to meet you face to face and really get to know about your events and the challenges you face when it comes to planning them.
This is an exclusive workshop style event where you will meet other event planners, share ideas, walk away with some cool tips and a bunch of new ideas.
The event will be capped at 40 people.
LEARNING OUTCOME ONE
So, I’m holding an event, what should I think about before I start?
LEARNING OUTCOME TWO
Did you just send an invitation that was missing vital information
and as a result no-one is RSVPing?
LEARNING OUTCOME THREE
You have a great event but not enough people know about it…
ABOUT YOUR FACILITATOR

Kim is described as a down to earth presenter who delivers content in an easy to understand and relaxed manner.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
“If you are stressed about how to ‘get bums on seats’ then this is a must attend workshop”
– Alicia Richards, Institute of Public Accountants
“This event helps you cut to the chase and takes the overwhelm out of registering people and getting them to your event”
– Rebecca Spencer, Life Beyond Limits
“Very excited about my next event. I now have the ‘how to’ and all the steps”
– Alex Allwood, The Holla Agency
“Clear actions to take away, extremely useful and super relevant to my role”
– Kate, Nillumbik Business Network
“All too often I see companies book a venue, send an invitation, order catering, AV equipment, spend thousands on their event and wonder why they only have a few people in attendance. Can you afford to keep doing this? Will you spend the next 5 years trying to figure out a better way, while continuing to run events for 20 people when you could have 120? Invest in this half day workshop and I will equip you with the tools, knowledge and framework I have spent years testing and developing”
- Kim Hesse, Venues 2 Events
