Did you know that according to a study by EventMB, 80% of event organizers consider lead generation to be a crucial part of their event strategy, and 73% of event organizers capture leads through registration forms? Additionally, 65% of event organizers believe that attendee data is the most important value they get from events.
However, organizers are reluctant to share participant data to sponsors (esp. due to data privacy / consent concerns). Capturing visitor information in booths is also not easy without technology. In this article, let’s see how the Sponsor App solves this problem faced by organizers as well as sponsors.
Challenges of Capturing Leads
Capturing leads from booth visitors in conferences and expos can be a challenging task:
With hundreds of people milling around the event, it can be difficult to differentiate those who are genuinely interested in your product or service from those who are simply browsing or seeking free giveaways.
There needs to be a simple and effective way to collect their details and follow-up after the event with email or phone.
There could be many booth staff members - and the leads they capture needs to be synced to the same place.
Given restrictions from GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and other privacy regulations, event organizers cannot simply share event participants data to sponsors or booth staff without explicit consent is given by the participants.
Not to worry, KonfHub is here to help! You can now use the Sponsor App that solves these and other pain-points of booth staff and sponsors in capturing leads during your event. With Sponsor app, event sponsors and booth staff can easily capture the participants' details directly from the event participants with their consent.
What is a Sponsor App and How Does it Solve the Problem?
KonfHub’s Sponsor App is a simple PWA (Progressive Web App) that doesn’t require installation to use as an app from your device.
As an event organizer in KonfHub, you can enable your sponsors by providing exclusive access to using the Sponsor App in your event.
During the event, booth staff from your sponsors can capture visitors' contact details (name, email id, etc) by just scanning the QR codes from their lanyards. Since participants are showing their lanyards, that provides consent for them to share their contact details to the sponsors.
When there are multiple booth staff, they use the same sponsor code, so all the leads will be synced-up together.
The sponsor can download the lead data at any-point in time during the event or anytime in near future for follow-up.
How Sponsor App Benefits You & Your Sponsors?
As an event organizer in KonfHub, there are numerous benefits of using the Sponsor App:
Providing the ability for sponsors to collect participant data directly from event participants can help secure sponsorship deals and increase your revenue.
Provide a secure way to allow only the sponsor to use the app and collect leads from event participants.
Since participants directly provide their contact information to booth staff / sponsors, you do not need to share participant information to sponsors.
