We want to thank everyone who joined us online for the APEX: Greater Giving User Conference 2022! Another huge shout out to our sponsors, and session guest speakers. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share some of your stories and insights with our audience at this years fundraising conference.
A Focused Group at the Fundraising Conference
Training is the most important part of fundraising conferences like this one. It’s the best way to learn about new products and services and how they will work for your organization. We were honored to have so many of you join us from all over the country. We hope you found the sessions you attended informative and interesting! We noticed throughout the conference everyone was excited to get back to planning in-person events and leveraging the opportunity to gather and share their mission work while raising much needed funds.
Three Session Topics Fundraising Conference Attendees Couldn’t Stop Talking About
Engaging Audiences using Mobile Friendly Technology
Many organizations are looking for ways to create new and innovative ways to engage their attendees and donors. Transitioning traditional Silent Auctions into Mobile friendly online bidding, integrating Text to Donate, and creating Project Websites sparked lively conversation during the APEX 2022 Conference. The session focused on best practices to help attendees understand how they can use technology to grow their donor base and increase engagement with their supporters. This allows organizations to offer an auction experience that is more interactive, engaging and fun than ever before!
Innovative Ways to Drive Donations
We have been working with our clients to find innovative ways to drive revenue during their live events. It is important to balance making money with keeping the event enjoyable for attendees and volunteers. During our Revenue Enhancers session we discussed several ideas as well as best practices when planning. Some of our favorites were the Wall of Wine, Ace of Spades, Rock, Paper, Scissors, and Paddle Drop. Make sure you check out our Auction Games Ebooks for more great ideas to incorporate into your next event.
The Heartbeat of Your Organization
The Volunteer Session was a very engaging session this year, with over 100 participants in the room. In order for volunteers to be successful, they need to be matched with the right opportunities and provided with the right training and support. This panel discussed how to recruit event volunteers effectively, how to keep them engaged long-term, and how to train them for your important roles during event night.
