One-day Conference Survey guide

Introduction to the One-day Conference Survey

The One-day Conference Survey allows you to build surveys that ask your delegates how satisfied they were with your conference. The survey contains some mandatory satisfaction questions including customisable free-text questions about the conference. There is also the opportunity to add demographic questions. You can tailor the title, the logo for your organisation, as well as introduction and thank you text. You may also redirect delegates to your chosen web page on submission of the survey.

The responses to the survey will help you understand how your delegates feel, assisting you in improving your conferences.
