Whether its an televised international championship or the first year for a local fun run, event organizers rarely have a chance to sit still. In the hustle and bustle, things can get overwhelming quickly, but don’t forget to slow down and listen to what your competitors have to say. They are your customer and will be your best insight into how you can improve your event from registrations, answering questions, feedback, course logistics to your post-event party. You are having one right?
Be sure to set up a mechanism for great feedback. Kompster has an awesome discussion system built into each listing where participants can ask questions and communicate with not only event organizers, but other competitors. Whether you list your event on Kompster and make use of this system or not, you may have a need for collecting specific information in a nice form. Forms can be embedded on webpages to make it simple for your customers to use.
