Event satisfaction survey – why is it important?

“Organizing events can get tough” – I’m sure anyone who’s ever organized an event (us, included) will nod their head in alignment when they read these words.

Searching for the ideal venue, attracting participants, scheduling speakers, and making sure everyone feels welcome…the list goes on and on.

And then, despite your biggest efforts, there are always those unexpected turns of events.

No A/C when there’s a sudden heat wave in early April. The wrong type of connector to your entire sound system. Or your main speaker calls in sick a day before the event. Yikes (our palms are sweating even as we write these words…).

Now, worst case scenarios aside, once your event is over, you always thank your participants for the great turnout and the speakers for attending and contributing with their wisdom.

Why not spice up your “thank you” email by sending an event satisfaction survey template like the one here? 

This way, you’ll not only show appreciation – you’ll also be showing the willingness to learn participants’ and speakers’ opinions, and improve as an event organizer.

This survey asks everything you need to know in order to become great at any future events you author.

It’s amazing how many customers are responding to our surveys. For every dollar we spend on a Survicate subscription, we generate about $25 in additional revenue.

Our event satisfaction survey template notes high response rates, as they’re straightforward and easy to complete.

But here’s the best part: You can distribute this survey not only via email but also across social media, meet up sites, forums – generally anywhere you stay in touch with participants.

Just copy/paste the survey link, and you’re done – sit back and watch those incoming responses!

Finding out more with follow-up questions

What if some answers to closed-ended questions create more doubt than clarification? Why did someone evaluate the event overall as a 9 out of 10, if they said that the speakers were a mere 3 out of 10?

That’s were out automatic follow-up questions come into play to put any doubts aside!

This will be especially useful if a user provides a displeasing answer. You won’t have to worry whether event participants evaluated it poorly due to lack of parking space at the venue, poor performance of some speakers, or a non-inclusive lunch menu which left your vegetarian crowd hungry.

No more guessing what’s spoiling the fun or keeping participants from getting value.

A pro-tip? You can also opt for sending a pre-event survey to ensure you manage all expectations of your future guests!

Make your events unforgettable – for all the right reasons

With Survicate, after you collect your participants’ thoughts and ideas, you’ll be able to easily analyze and track change in the overall event satisfaction rate.

Share these results with anyone else involved in the event, and make sure you are all on the same page with the direction of all future events!

Apart from easily visualizing survey results in readable, user-friendly graphs, you can also export data to your favourite external tools, such as Excel, or Google Sheets*.
