Once the planning and organizing is well underway, it’s important to start getting the word out about your event. The details of this conference should be disclosed as you market it. Time and date, venue, what attendees can expect, and what type of food you’ll have available should be included in these details.

Social media is a great way to get the word out about your event. That means creating an event that people can respond to, share, and invite others to. It also includes sharing posts about the event, emailing links, and more.

You can also send out an email invitation. This can be a great way to engage those that aren’t using social media. Even better, emailing an invitation that includes a date, time, and venue will allow those that receive it to add your holiday recruiting event to their calendar.

Make sure you include directions to the venue in every place you’re advertise. There’s nothing more frustrating than being unable to find the location for an event you’re hoping to attend.

Be sure to send out reminders for the event one week out from the date. You’ll want to start planning and organizing everything five to six weeks out. Invitations should go out about four weeks out. Then, a week before, send a reminder through Facebook or email.

Include giveaways that can be registered for during check-in. You’ll want to be sure to check your guests in so that you can get a little bit of information about them. This can help with networking, meeting new candidates, and being able to get in touch with them long after your event is done.

Following up afterward is a great way to develop longstanding relationships with your guests. After all, this is the main focus for hosting this event! You want to improve your recruiting abilities and create a talent pool that you can use when you need it.

During the week of your holiday recruiting event, make sure all food is ordered and finalized, speakers are ready to go, and you have all your volunteers and prizes lined up. This last week will be putting the final touches on everything you’ve been planning and organizing for the last six weeks. We hope you find these tips helpful! If you’ve hosted an event before, let us know how it went in the comments. What would you change next time? What did you enjoy most?
