One of my social media guru friends, Brian Tomkins (@BrianTomkins on Twitter), invited me to attend the Make An Impact Live! in Chicago. This event focused on strategies for both personal, business, and health success. Thought it sounded interesting and signed up.
So I get my confirmation in my email as would be expected. But what I didn’t expect was to see this…
Also, due to respect for participants with allergies, we request that you not wear any fragrances such as perfume, cologne, or after-shave.
Wow, that’s a new one! But it makes a lot of sense if you think about it. While I love the smell of perfumes and such, I cannot wear the majority of them because they give me quite a sinus headache even though I don’t have allergies per se. Can’t imagine what a person who does have allergies experiences when having to be stuck in a conference room for several hours.
What other non-obvious things could be affecting your attendees’ experience… but that are not usually identified in surveys? What event tips could you use–such as the perfume advice in this confirmation email–to lessen the effects? Think about it and share with us in comments.
