Events are held all around the year, yet many of them fail while others succeed. The reasons might be several for event’s failure, but on top of the list lies not taking the attendees to feedback seriously or not including as part of a plan to engage them and voice their opinion.

The majority of event managers will work day and night to incorporate the latest technologies such as augmented and virtual reality, beacons and mobile event app. However, they might ignore the fact that collecting feedback will help them devise better plans and strategies in order to engage attendees.
