Audience Response Systems

Engage your audience, drive your event forward with feedback in real-time, by using our audience response system is the perfect event engagement solution

Your conference is coming up, and you want your audience to feel engaged and involved rather than simply sitting, listening and watching speakers on stage. Q&As can be difficult to control. The answer lies with a voting system. Using audience response systems is controlled and efficient and enables guests to interact with the event and potentially drive it forward.

By using our audience response systems or voting systems at your event, you can collect information and opinions from your audience as well as improving levels of engagement.

If you’re planning your next event and are looking to make a better connection with your audience, contact us to find out more about which audience response system would best meet your needs and discover why we’re one of the UK’s leading event production companies.

Voting systems, feedback and real-time information

At designed event production, we offer two types of audience response systems, each designed to increase audience engagement, gather information and collate opinion from your attendees.

Our preferred interactive keypads systems, Ombea, can be supplied as either an add on to your event or as part of the complete package that we supply.

The Ombea audience response system is simple for your attendees to understand and use and is not reliant on Wi-Fi connection as it runs via a dedicated radio frequency that we maintain for you on the day. For your guests, it is as simple as picking up the keypad and making their selection. No set-up or training is required by the end-user; simply pick up and make your selection.

The system works seamlessly with PowerPoint and melds seamlessly with the rest of the content you will be producing for your event. You can capture and display the voting data instantly to your audience. You also have the option to track information from users or make the voting anonymous, whatever suits your event best.

Rather than simply supply the audience response system equipment, we can provide a complete service. We’ll work closely with you to design your questions and slides for the presentation, ensure that they are on brand and fit within the rest of your content. Our project manager will work with you throughout the entire process, beginning with your initial enquiry and continuing throughout. We’ll ensure that your questions will work well with the keypad system and if we see questions that are too vague, or could be misinterpreted, we will advise you and make recommendations for more suitable alternatives.

After the event, we will provide you will a full report of the keypad results, along with analysis which enables you to dissect and inspect the results in full.

We also can provide online polling and messaging solutions that can be used on attendee’s smartphones, tablets or laptops via an app.

All audience response systems have full pre-production support and onsite technical support to ensure the smooth running of the event. Our team is always happy to discuss the best solution for you and your event. Contact us to find out more.

We can create the best layout within the space you have for seating, lecterns, comfort monitors and any other stage furniture you require for your event.
