Event Survey Sample Questions

Looking for event survey sample questions? You came to the right blog.

You see, event surveys aren't just for non-profit or charity organizations, contrary to popular belief. This valuable tool allows you to fully understand how successful your latest event (dinner, fundraiser, conference, awards ceremony, fête, or sales event) is, regardless of lip service.

Not only will you gain insight to your attendees, but you will also learn who is new to your event and whether or not you captured their interest. You'll also learn what parts of your event were considered worthwhile and what parts may need improvement.

Furthermore, with any new attendee, you'll learn why they chose to come to you event and how they learned about it. It will demonstrate which event promotional method is working and drawing in the most "newbies." Need a little help getting started? We've created a sample event survey below for you to try out.

Check out the updated version of this post as part of the Flashback Friday series: Why You Should Use Event Exit Surveys.
