Event Surveys FAQs

Everything you need to know about event surveys and how they can help you improve attendee experiences.

What are event surveys?

Event surveys are a great way to gather feedback and data on events. They can be used to help identify any problems that occurred during an event, learn about attendees’ opinions and experiences, and measure how successful an event was. Event surveys can be customized to fit the needs of your organization, and they can be conducted online or in person. Whether you’re planning your next public event or just looking for feedback on past events, consider using an event survey tool to get the information you need.

Why is event feedback important?

Event surveys can help you identify any problems that occurred during an event, learn about participants’ opinions and experiences, and measure how successful an event was. This information can help you improve future events and make sure they’re more enjoyable for everyone involved.

What are the different types of surveys for event management?

There are three types of event surveys you’ll need to be aware of: pre-event surveys, mid-event surveys, and post-event surveys.

What are pre-event surveys?

There are two main functions to pre-event surveys; to plan the details of your event and to learn as much as possible about your invitees. Then you can use this information to set KPIs and ensure the event meets the expectations of your guests.

What are mid-event surveys?

Live feedback is essential to making your event a success. During a break, or between events, ask guests to provide some feedback on the event experience so far.

This allows you to measure satisfaction and address and make any off-the-cuff changes. Avoid sending out a mid-event survey during the lunch break, as you’re likely to get a low response rate. You should give your attendees that time to rest and prepare for the next half of the event.

What are post-event surveys?

Now your event is done, it’s time to highlight its successes and failures with constructive feedback. Get in touch with attendees to find out what they liked, what could use improvement and what didn’t meet their expectations.

This information is used to determine your even ROI, measure attendee satisfaction and inform the planning for your next event.

What are some examples of event survey questions?

Here are some examples of questions for your event surveys:

  • Which talks did you attend?
  • Would you recommend this event to a friend or colleague? (Employee NPS)
  • How would you improve the event?
  • Have you attended this event before?
  • How helpful were event staff?
  • Are you likely to participate in this event in the future?
  • What did you enjoy most about the event?
  • How did you find out about the event?
  • Were you happy with the time you had for questions?
  • Did the event meet your expectations?
  • How satisfied are you with the event overall?
