Have you ever completed an event and wondered how the attendees felt about the event? You probably have an idea how it went, but experiences can vary from attendee to attendee. Because of this it’s important to collect feedback from event participants, during or immediately after the event. Here are some important questions to include on your post-event survey:

General Post Event Survey Questions

  • Overall, how would you rate the event? 
  • Please rate the following aspects of the event: 
    • Date and time
    • Location
    • Food and beverage
    • Vendors
    • Speakers
    • Sessions
  • What did you like most about the event? 
  • What did you like least about the event?
  • How do you think this event could have been improved?
  • Was this the first time you attended one of our events?
  • Based on your experience at this event, how likely are you to attend future events?
  • How likely are you to recommend our events to a friend/colleague? 
  • How would you rate the communication throughout the planning process? 
  • Do you have any other suggestions or comments to help us improve our future events? 
  • What additional feedback do you have? 

Keep in mind that asking open-ended questions will allow for more feedback and engagement from your guests instead of Yes/No answers which leave limited room for additional comments and feedback, unless you offer a spot for that at the end of the survey.

Also ensure the survey is not overly time-consuming, as surveys can sometimes be tedious and the goal is to get as much genuine and helpful feedback from your participants as possible.

Happy planning!
