Social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat are great ways to promote events and engage attendees and while most people don’t expect event organisers to be on top of every new app and trend, they do expect you to make room for how they use those platforms at your event.
While getting attendees to share photos of your event may seem like a mammoth task, there is no need to over think it, especially not in this selfie-driven society, just stick to the three tips in this post and you will be well on your way.
Create photo worthy moments
If you want your attendees to take photos you need to create photo worthy moments. Add unique fun elements to your event that will attract the attention of your attendees when the main proceedings aren’t going on. Depending on the event these elements could include anything from photo booths and glitzy backdrops, to showcase of items or entertainment relevant to the event.

Opt for social media friendly décor
Aesthetically-pleasing, high-impact decor creates great visuals that inspire guests to snap and share their photos. Venue design, ambience and good lighting are all important elements when it comes to creating social media friendly décor so pay special attention when planning your next Instagrammable event.
Make room for “celebrity” sightings
When most people see the word celebrity they think, film stars, musicians or sportsmen and women but every industry has its celebrities. So be sure to highlight the presence of your special guests and industry experts to your attendees. Set up an area, with a backdrop, off your main stage for attendees to pose for pictures with your speakers before you know it you will be trending as guests make their friends jealous with their celebrity snaps.
