How to Engage Millennials in Your Corporate Event
It’s no surprise that millennials are taking over the workforce. In fact, by 2020, 75% of the workforce will be millennials – that’s next year! Remember that millennials fall in the 23-38 age range, so it’s important to stay engaged with them and include them in your corporate event activities. If you’re wondering how to engage millennials in your corporate event, then look no further! We’ve got three tips that will make the process smooth sailing.
- Everyone wants authentic experiences, but millennials do more than ever. While attending your corporate event, they want to feel like they are part of it. It’s also no secret that millennials love sharing these authentic experiences online, so¬†we recommend creating ways for them to engage on social media and your website. Start a contest with a hashtag and encourage them to submit content, or utilize a photo booth that will allow them to share photos and videos¬†on the spot.
- Extend those sharable moments beyond photos or online content with a unique venue. Your venue is the first look at what kind of event will be taking place, so create a unique space that will truly keep your audience engaged. For example, our waterfront venue in Destin¬†offers a tranquil space that will have attendees feeling relaxed and recharged during their time here.
- Think outside the box and use event apps to your advantage! We spend a lot of time on our phones, and millennials seem to spearhead that notion. Creating a custom app is a lot of work, but worth it, in the long run, to allow users to connect with other attendees. As an added bonus, link the app to social networks so attendees can engage further.
