rumrolls! The new Meetup experience is now live on Airmeet.
The new Meetup format has an exciting set of features and UI changes to improve the event experience for both the organizers and attendees. Get ready to improve your hosting experience, branding, and event engagement.
Before we dive into the update, please note that this updated format is not optional and will be the default setup for all meetups after the launch. Once rolled out, it will not be possible for organizers to switch back to the previous format.
Here’s everything you need to know about this new format:
A smoother UI for an interactive event
The new Meetup format aims to make it easier for the attendees to navigate and find information within the event with ease. Some of the notable changes are:
- The side navigation panel moves to the top making it easy to explore event options. Find people, alerts, and messages in the top navigation bar now.
- A secondary navigation panel now hosts Chat, Q&A, and Messages.
- Interacting with attendees has gotten pretty straightforward. The messaging option is now a part of the attendee card. Hover over, tap, and send your message.
- We have made the ‘View schedule’ option prominent by placing it on the top navigation bar. Attendees can now view the schedule from anywhere within the event.
The mobile web UI experience is also getting a makeover. A cleaner, easy-to-navigate mobile browser UI that will make for an enjoyable event experience.
Get ready to improve your hosting experience, branding, and engagement.
New features to dial-up engagement and attendee experience
The newly introduced features are here to help you run a highly engaging event. If you are planning an upcoming event, the following are the features you shouldn’t miss out on.
Display Banner for brand visibility: Capture audience attention with a prominently displayed banner in the lounge. This branding is currently available only under the paid plan.
EM access to preview mode for all events: Prepare for a hassle-free event day through better collaboration with your team.
Announcements and pinned messages to elevate engagement: Communicate and engage with the attendees via announcements and pinned messages. Highlight the message that you want your attendees to pay attention to.
Advanced polls to gather audience opinions: Go beyond yes or no questions. Set up detailed polls to capture attendee opinion and feedback. The current Y/N poll option under the Meetup format will not be available post the new format launch.
