Conference Internet | Part III: Revenue Opportunities

In Part I and Part II of this Conference Internet series, we’ve covered bandwidth allocation and attendee considerations. We identified the key aspects of CSMS, like creating access codes and allocating higher-speed Internet access to specific users based on the size and type of event. In the third and final installment of this series, we will explain additional revenue opportunities for your conference space.

Customized Dynamic Conference Landing Pages

A great value-added benefit to attract conference business is to offer customized welcome screens that appear when an attendee opens their browser at a conference. With CSMS from Eleven, event managers can easily create completely customized welcome screens for their conferences. With an intuitive WYSISYG ("what you see is what you get") editor and pre-loaded templates, you don’t have to be a web designer to create great-looking splash screens. Users can easily make a landing page for a conference or meeting, including inserting the conference logo, event specifics including schedule, links to other pages, suggested places to visit and eat, and more.

Gleaning Additional Revenue from Conference

Eleven’s CSMS allows users to customize Internet access plans, including where in the hotel access is included. Perhaps the conference organizer only chose to include Internet access in the conference floor; by offering access throughout the rest of the hotel at a discount to attendees you are able to earn additional revenue and increase guest satisfaction.

Pop up Boarding Pass Terminals

Portable boarding pass kiosks for events and conferences are a benefit that is sure to attract more conference business. If you so choose, you could even charge for printing or computer use over a certain amount of time to capture even more revenue.

As you can see, flexible options within CSMS is key to maximizing both revenue and guest satisfaction.

Anaheim Marriott, Renaissance Charlotte Suites, and Newport News Marriott at City Center are just a few successfully using Eleven’s CSMS to add value to their clients. Subscribe to our blog, follow us on Twitter, or like us on Facebook to get our latest customer stories, news, and more.
