The event registration page is an often overlooked part of the attendee experience. In many instances, event registration pages are ugly, unreliable, and create a negative experience for event attendees.

Think about it: this is the first impression an attendee will have of your event, why would you want them to have a negative or at best, mediocre experience?
Fortunately, event organizers can create a registration page that delights attendees . 

Here's how to do it:

Use Design To Your Advantage
One of the first impressions event attendees will have comes from their experience with your event registration page.

Ensure that the page is well designed, and just as importantly, make sure that the page fits your branding.

If the registration page features the colors and logo of an event registration platform, rather than your event's logos and colors, attendees may become confused. Moreover, your own brand will be considered weaker or less important (at least subliminally).
Creating a registration experience provides users with a sense of continuity. It also helps to make your event seem more polished thanks to consistent brand imagery (in this case consistent fonts and colors).

When designing your event registration page, be sure to also make use of contrasting colors as a way of guiding attendees through the registration process. This color is in contrast to the rest of the branding on the event website and helps to pull the visitors eye down the page.
 

Integrate With Social Media
One of the biggest reasons for abandoned registrations is because potential attendees simply don't like filling out long forms.

As a result conversion rates (the percentage of people who visit your registration page and actually end up submitting it) increase as the number of form fields decrease.

One great way to decrease the number of form fields, while still collecting the information you need, is by enabling social sign in. The form below allows potential attendees to register by simply clicking the "Register Using LinkedIn" button.
This cuts registration time dramatically, while also increasing conversion rates. According to some marketing companies, social sign-in can increase conversion rates by 40-60%.

Enabling social logins has an added benefit for event organizers. It makes adding event attendees to an integrated event networking community much easier. That's because some event planning software platforms add registrants to a networking community once they've signed up. By connecting their profiles to LinkedIn, everyone gets a much richer networking experience, while requiring only requiring event goers to click a button.

 

Bundle Registration Form Fields
User experience should be at the top of every event organizer's mind when thinking about the registration page. In order to create a seamless experience for attendees, it's best to bundle necessary information into categories.

Budling makes the page more intuitive for event attendees, as they understand how the information they're asked to provide is related to the event.

 

Make Your Event Registration Page Intuitive
Most registration pages ask attendees to fill out boring credit card fields when registering. The best event registration pages incorporate intuitive registration elements like the interactive credit card.
This interactive feature reduces the need for unnecessary explainer text, and it provides attendees with a rewarding checkout experience.

 

Make Sure Registration Is Mobile Friendly
More than ⅓ of all online purchases were made on mobile devices in 2013, according to Kissmetrics. If your event registration page is not mobile responsive, you need to get that fixed right away.

A mobile responsive page, is different from a mobile friendly page. Responsive design is considered to be the gold standard for mobile design, and it's something that you should have in place if there's any change that a sizeable portion of users (anything over 10%) will attempt to register to your event using a mobile device.

A merly mobile friendly website might not have fit the phone's uniquely sized screen, but a mobile responsive design looks great.
Note that mobile designs should also include shorter forms, if possible (remember the social login button), and must take the phone's keyboard into account as well.

 

Conclusion: The Perfect Registration Page
The ideal conference registration experience is one that was built from the ground up to suit the desires of event attendees. Based on the data presented in this article, the most effective pages limit the number of field options, harness the power of design and color psychology, use social login, and are mobile responsive.

By building an intuitively designed conference registration page could cause a meaningful increase in conversion rates. The means more attendees registered and more revenue as well.

Planning Your Child's Birthday Bash? Why You Should Consider Indoor Pools For The Party.

Getting ready to celebrate a child's upcoming birthday? Finding the right venue to host the party can quickly begin to feel exhausting. Yes, the overall theme of the celebration plays a key role in the vibe of the day. However, where you host the party proves even more vital; the venue has to be a place where kids can enjoy the festivities and safely burn off some youthful energy in order to consider the bash an overall success.

If you're looking for a fun, festive and different way to celebrate your child's upcoming milestone, you may want to consider working with some of the indoor pools in your region.

Innovative facilities that tout indoor pools represent an ideal hosting option for a wide range of reasons. When choosing indoor pools for your child's party, you'll enjoy an extensive range of festivity advantages such as:

Exclusive Use of Pools

It's no secret that children of all ages love playing in the water, particularly in a large, fun group. Renting a swimming facility for your child's party allows you to access private use of the pools during your celebration, so your group can swim and play together for a set amount of time. Best of all, your attendees will be able to enjoy the pool come rain or shine.

Access to Various Toys and Equipment

Beyond the pools themselves, renting an indoor facility also means that your group of attendees will be able to use various swim toys and equipment. Balls, retrievable toys and even flotation devices may be provided to up the fun factor throughout the day. Many leading facilities will also help set up pool games throughout your swim time to keep your guests fully engaged while playing in the water.

Trained Lifeguards

Of course, every parent wants to ensure that their child's birthday celebration offers a safe venue for guests. Indoor pools will offer skilled, trained and experienced lifeguards to help monitor all of your little guests, ensuring that everyone is safe around the water. When screening facilities be sure to inquire about CPR, First Aid and Lifeguard Certification of personnel to know that your little guests will be carefully monitored and safeguarded at all times.

Beyond The Water: Look For Venues That Offer Traditional Party Festivities As Well

Of course, quality facilities will also offer far more than just water play during your child's festivities. Leading venues will provide other, more traditional, celebratory amenities throughout the day as well. One key thing to look for when screening venues is a separate party room where you and your guests can continue the celebration. This separate room will prove a great place to eat, open presents, sing happy birthday to your little one and cut the celebratory cake. Best of all, once your festivities have ended, you don't have to worry about managing cleanup. 

Looking for the perfect party venue for your child's birthday? NuStreams Swimming Centre, and a wide range of party planning options to help ensure your little one's day is fun and memorable.

What is Valentine's Day?

Here we are going to discuss some most romantic ways to celebrate this beautiful day.


Valentine's Day offers lovers many ways to express their emotions. Perhaps one of these will inspire you. Many people around the world celebrate Valentine's Day by showing appreciation for the people they love or adore. Some people take their loved ones for a romantic dinner at a restaurant while others may choose this day to propose or get married. Many people give greeting cards, chocolates, jewelry or flowers, particularly roses, to their partners or admirers on Valentine's Day. It is also a time to appreciate friends in some social circles and cultures.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Whether you are spending the day with a special someone or getting together with friends, here are some most romantic thing and ways that you can do on a day that's set aside for love.

Enjoy Valentine's Day Alone


Celebrate being hot and single, and enjoy some time to mingle. Who says that people need a companion for this one day of the year? Treat yourself to a spa or a long bubble bath. Take a long drive and enjoy the scenery. If it's too snowy or iced down, stay in and watch sports games or that romantic movie on cable. Some people get lucky on this day.


Express With a Rose


No gift says "I love you" on Valentine's Day like a bouquet of roses. Express your words with a rose. While lavender (or purple) are seen more on first dates and secret "love at first sight" times, white roses are a tradition for weddings. Pink, orange, and yellow roses are viewed as admiration, excitement, and friendship respectively. The yellow and pink are very similar and can be used for the same events. Finally, the red rose, as the color expresses and emphasizes beauty and love. Red roses are traditionally exchanged by couples and people who wish to express their feelings towards another.


A day for Friends, not Lovers


Valentine's Day is traditionally a way to celebrate the romance in your life, but it's also a good way to show friends how much you value them. There are as many ways to do this as there are friendships, and no way is right or wrong. With some friends, you might give a card to say "Happy Valentine's Day," while with others you might go all out with a big party.


Remind Your First Date


There's a good chance that the beginning of your relationship was the time when you made the most effort to show her your romantic side, so why not turn back the clock and remind her how charming you were when you were wooing her?

Women love it when men remember details from when they were still getting to know each other. Think back to your first date, and take her to the same place, eat the same food and do the same things that first sparked your romance.


Make a Romantic Date!


Okay, so you may not be able to pull off anything like Justin Bieber's romantic "Titanic" date but surely you can swing with your love. Sometimes the best Valentine's Day gift you can give is the gift of uninterrupted time together. You don't need to leave the house to make Valentine's Day special. Think of how great it could be to spend the entire day in a bedroom together. Turn off your phones, don't answer the door and enjoy each other.


Sweets for Your Sweet


Chocolate is to Valentine's Day what Bruce Willis is to Die Hard, the star of the show. It's a fact that chocolate has a batting average of about 1.000 when it comes as a present, so why not turn the entire day into one, long sweet gift? If you are getting something for a school classmate, get a small box of those sugary hearts with the little sayings on them. If you wish, you can make a chocolate recipe along with someone else on Valentine's Day.


Dress up in Your Finest


This is a very special day so pull out all the stops and dress up in your finest. No matter what your plans are, whether you've got reservations at a posh restaurant or you're eating a meal together at home, dressing up and good grooming will make the occasion feel extra special. Most women love having the chance to get all dolled up, and you can both enjoy looking your best while spending time together.


Make a Homemade Card for Someone


The card will have more meaning to it if it's created by you instead of buying a card from a store. Use your own words to describe the person you're giving it to. Create a poem or a note of appreciation. Add a little "copyrighted" symbol on the back of the card for fun.


Spend Quality Time With Loved One


Make time for what's important and spend quality time with your loved ones. The easiest way to spend quality time with loved ones is to involve them in your day. Go out to a nice restaurant or create a special dinner. Cuddle with your significant other on a couch and watch a movie. Try to avoid distractions, such as surfing the internet, chatting on the phone while around people, or deciding to do other things by yourself or with another group of people.


Propose Your Dream Girl


The best way to propose to the woman of your dreams is on Valentines Day. If you've been thinking about asking her to marry you, there's no time like Valentine's Day for a romantic proposal. The day is meant for lovers, after all, and getting down on one knee with a ring or red rose is one of the best ways you can profess your love for her.

ESSENTIAL TIPS TO PLAN AN EVENT OR CONFERENCE SERIES

Whether your event series is spaced out throughout the country or scheduled on back to back dates, running it can be a real balancing act. Schedules fade into one another as events come and go. Save yourself time not to mention a headache with these few tips for running an event series!

Make it social

To help promote your event, before and during the event, create a hashtag your team and attendees can use as they tweet and post on Instagram. Your hashtag should not only be short and relevant, but also unique. Make sure other events or businesses are not using the hashtag you have in mind. Before your event series begins, promote your hashtag on your event website, social media accounts, newsletters, emails, and so on. Great examples of memorable hastags are:

#Inbound15 for Hubspot's annual marketing conference

#SMMW16 for Social Media Examiner's gathering

#TheGathering2016 for The Cult Gathering's awesome upcoming marketing event.

 

Encourage event attendees to post photos of the event on social media accounts, while also encouraging your event speakers to engage with event attendees online. You can think about incorporating an event app and social media displays to further encourage online interaction. Making your event social helps to add continuity between one event and the next by making it possible for your event attendees to communicate with one another online. That way, it doesn't matter if one attendee was at your East Coast event and another went to your West Coast gathering, they can still engage with one another online.

Create continuity between events

With an event series, it's important to make each event connect with the next. Doing this allows attendees to see the bigger picture and see the series as a whole, rather than as separate parts. To add unity to your events, try creating a networking community using an event networking platform, LinkedIn or Facebook. Attendees can connect with one another, all while learning more about the events within your series.You can also host a recap on Google Hangouts, or create a newsletter that updates subscribers on what speakers, workshops and exhibits will be available at each event.

Know your attendees

By asking insightful questions using event registration software, organizers will be able to better understand the preferences of attendees. Certain information can prove helpful for running your event series. Demographic information, age, gender, and address can give you an idea about a person's preferences. Additional information can help you make decisions or changes to best suit the needs of your attendees. 

The questions you ask could be simple (T-shirt size) or strategic (Twitter handles). Either way, having a database of rich contact information will make it easier for event planners to properly engage with event attendees in the future.

If organizers already know that someone who attended a previous event was mostly interested in learning about recruiting best practices, you can send that person a tailored email inviting them to an upcoming event solely on that topic.

Find well informed speakers

A good part of your budget will go toward finding top notch keynote speakers for each segment of your event series.

There are many reputable agencies out there that represent expert speakers in different areas of businesses. But for event organizers on a tight budget, they should consider inviting local business professors to speak at your event.

Often University professors are expected to speak at various events as a way of providing exposure for their university and to further boost their own presence.

University professors tend to be true experts, and will request smaller speaking fees to deliver the same if not more thoughtful information to attendees.

Since running an event series can be even more expensive than organizing a one-off event, consider selecting event venues near manor Universities to keep speaking costs down while making it easier to provide attendees with valuable insights.

Unify events with a theme

To stay organized and to connect your events, consider organizing each event by theme. For instance, if your event series centers on social media marketing, you can focus on different platforms for each event.

At the end of each event, a speaker could introduce the topic of your next event, highlighting what points will be covered, which speakers will be presenting, and so on.
Creating an event series that is organized by clear themes will make it easier to encourage existing attendees to go to upcoming events, while also making it easier for event organizers to plan.

Plan additional small gathering to keep your series alive

The time between one event and the next can mean that attendees have time to lose interest. Don't let that happen.

Instead, keep attendees engaged between one event and the next by organizing smaller networking events or meetups between larger events.

For attendees, these events will feel like a value added experience (especially if you don't charge for them), for event organizers, these smaller events will be a perfect time to pitch upcoming larger events to those in attendance.

Invest in event management software

In a recent article by the folks at Constant Contact, readers were encouraged to find event management software to help them manage their event series.

An event planning platform can be quite helpful because it makes it easy to manage all aspects of planning multiple events by keeping everything in one place. From important event data, to the tools needed to build an event website or to manage event ticketing, an all-in-one platform makes event planning considerably easier and more successful.

Highlight important points from prior events

To tie together your event series, try to spend a few minutes recapping key points from prior events. You don't need to create an entire presentation; just show a few photos from other conferences from your series.

This will create a sense of unity between different events, while also demonstrating to current event attendees that the series has a history of providing valuable insight to attendees. That means that attendees will be more likely to sign up for additional events in the series in the future.

Offer a bulk discount

Be sure to reward event attendees for signing up for multiple events in the series with a discount. Doing this incentivizes a long-term relationship, which is the key to building valuable customer relationships.

To do this simply create a discounted ticket option in your event registration software, or email existing contacts with this offer.

Build efficient project workflows

As we've mentioned before, it's critical that event organizers harness the power of simple workflows to get more done in less time.

Planning a conference is time consuming, but planning a conference series is even more of a challenge. To make sure everyone on your team is on the same page, consider incorporating a project management tool like Trello, Asana or Workflow into your day-to-day work. This will make it simpler to monitor the status of projects.

Conclusion: What to work on first

For many reasons, an event or conference series can provide attendees with much more value than if you simply organized a one-off event. That said, organizing a series is also more time consuming and more expensive.

Let's be honest, purchasing a wedding suit can feel like a daunting task even for the most seasoned shopper. From navigating a wedding's dress code requirements to selecting season-appropriate fabrics and colors, there are many factors to take into consideration when picking out a wedding suit.

Let's be honest, purchasing a wedding suit can feel like a daunting task even for the most seasoned shopper. From navigating a wedding's dress code requirements to selecting season-appropriate fabrics and colors, there are many factors to take into consideration when picking out a wedding suit. So, to make life easier, we've narrowed down the options and curated a selection of men's wedding suits tailored to complement all styles and budgets.

While tuxedos are usually reserved for a black-tie wedding or a formal event, wedding suits are more versatile and can be worn to honor various types of dress codes from casual to black tie optional. For a casual ceremony, suits in light gray or soft linen create a laidback but polished wedding day look. To take it up a notch for a semi formal wedding, you can't go wrong with a wool or twill suit in navy or charcoal gray. And if the dress code calls for formal or black tie optional attire, grooms will look nothing short of dapper in a classic three piece suit.

 

Ready to suit up? Ahead, we've rounded up the best wedding suits for grooms, groomsmen, and guests.


Best Three-Piece Suit: Reiss Electric Blue Wool Suit


For a formal wedding, it doesn't get more dapper than this three-piece suit from Reiss. Cut from electric blue fabric this style pairs beautifully with a crisp white dress shirt and dark brown shoes.

 

Most Stylish: Tom Ford Slim-Fit Super 120s Wool Suit


Tom Ford's impeccably made suits are regularly worn by A-list celebrities on the red carpet. Channel some of the most dapper men in Hollywood in this tailored style crafted from navy wool.

 

Best Investment Piece: Saint Laurent Classic Wool Suit

Whether you're a groom, groomsmen, or guest, a timeless and reliable suit should be a part of your wardrobe. This suit from Saint Laurent is a classic style worth investing in.

Best Bright Blue Style: Bonobos Premium Italian Wool Suit


Known for creating an easy and painless shopping experience, Bonobos offers a carefully curated selection of formal suits for the modern man. We love this bright blue suit in particular because it feels unique without being overly statement-making.

 

For a Formal Wedding: The Blue Tux Navy Suit


If you're shopping for a wedding suit for a formal wedding, this sleek suit from The Black Tux is a smart pick. Plus, this style is also available to rent making it a budget-friendly choice as well.

 

For a Summer Wedding: The Suit Supply Gray Wool Silk Suit


We're picturing this wool-silk and linen blend suit against an ocean backdrop. If you're throwing or attending a wedding by the beach, this light blue style is a no brainer.

 

Best Budget: H&M Slim Fit Twill Jacket


For a wedding suit that looks great and doesn't break the bank, this H&M suit doesn't disappoint. Featuring a slim fit and pointed lapels, this suit is flattering and timeless.

 

Best Alternative to Navy: The Suit Supply Green Wool Suit


Sure, navy and black are the most traditional colors to wear to a wedding, but this rich green hue feels like an instant classic. And when it comes to a formal wedding, you can never go wrong with a three-piece suit in a sophisticated tone.

 

For a Dressy Casual Wedding: Indochino Hemsworth Blue Suit


For a less formal or daytime wedding, gray suits are a fitting choice. Pair with a crisp white shirt and skip the tie for a laidback look.

 

For a Winter Wedding: Z ZEGNA Men's Velvet Shawl-Lapel Dinner Jacket


Winter weddings call for rich fabrics in dark hues. If the dress code is formal but doesn't require you to wear a tuxedo, this sharp dinner jacket is a sophisticated and statement-making option. Add a pair of black suit pants to complete the look.

 

For a Casual Wedding: H&M Light Brown Suit


For a daytime wedding in the fall, consider a light brown suit. As stylish as it is versatile, this H&M suit could easily be worn to a wedding and to the office.

 

Best Subtle Pattern: BrooksGate™ Regent-Fit Windowpane Wool Twill Suit


A windowpane design is perfect for grooms seeking out a suit with a subtle pattern. Statement-making but not overly trendy, windowpane fabrics add some edge to a classic suit.

 

Best Gray Style: J.Crew Ludlow Suit

Crafted from superior Italian wool, this suit was designed to blend comfort and style. Wear yours to a fall wedding with a navy blue tie.

 

For a Spring Wedding: Paul Stewart Twill Suit


We're picturing this lightweight suit in an earthy tone at a garden wedding. Be bold and style this suit with a colorful shirt and statement-making neckwear.

 

Most Fashion-Forward: Dolce & Gabbana Jacquard Effect Tailored Suit
