In-person events are incredible ways to connect your community. Some of the biggest brands in the world have started using offline events to become core members of local communities, while hosting annual events in major cities that draw in visitors from all over the world.
And it works even better for small communities - think coffee shop meet-ups, yoga in the park, workshops... The possibilities are endless. With a little bit of planning, you can host your own offline event no matter how many members your community has.
Like online events, the first thing you want to do is think of the goal of the event. It can be as simple as getting to meet your community members in-person, provide a networking opportunity, or offer support and guidance in the form of a workshop.
Once you have your goal, think about what you need to do to achieve that goal. What will you need? Do you need to book a physical space? Do attendees need to bring anything with them? Do you need to provide materials? Is this a free event, or will you charge attendees a fee?
Write down a list of everything you need and how you'll get them.
Create an Event Page
You can create a page for your event in your community's Manager portal. You can learn more about setting up yours here.
This page is important because it'll be the central point for sharing your event info with others. Make sure all the information is clear and accessible.
On the Day
The day of your event has come and all your planning has come together! Arrive at your location earlier than everyone else to make sure all is as it should be and to do any setup if necessary.
Then it's over to you. Enjoy spending time with your people!
