Post Event Survey Questions to Ask Your Attendees – Tips and Tactics for Trailblazing Planners

Sometimes asking the right question about something is the only way to get the right answers. As an event organizer, it is important to have a good understanding of your attendees' experiences and perceptions. This is why knowing which post event survey questions to ask is crucial. What did they like? What did they not like? How satisfied were they with their experience of your brand? The answers to these questions are valuable feedback that can drive growth and enhance the customer experience in future events. Having the right mix of open-ended and closed-ended questions in your surveys is sometimes all it takes for you to gather a well-rounded view of the feedback you receive.

Why Post-Event Survey Questions are so Important

Have you ever organized an event that you thought was a huge success, only to be left wondering if your attendees felt the same way? 

This is a common challenge faced by event planners, but there is a solution

Post-event engagement is often overlooked, especially during happenings where so much is going on simultaneously. 

But post-event engagement is just as important as pre-event planning. It doesn’t end once the conference ends. 

In fact, it begins immediately following the conference with post-event survey questions, follow-up emails, developing an engaging online community, and so much more.

The point of an event is usually to gather leads and to make new contacts.

Even though your happening has concluded, you’re only halfway done as far as achieving your overall goals. 

You’ve already gathered some great leads and made some great connections, but now you need to follow up on those relationships and nurture them into long-term partnerships. 

This is where a comprehensive post-event strategy becomes critical.

The key to successful post-event engagement lies in understanding how attendees perceive your brand, and how they view themselves within it.

You’ll want to ask questions to understand where they came from, why they attended, what they learned, and how they feel about your organization. 

This information helps you identify opportunities for future growth and improve your overall customer experience.

PRO TIP: Based on your goals from the Planning phase, pre-schedule a follow-up campaign including messages, upcoming conferences and happenings, and actions that build on your momentum and drive toward your desired results.
