Top 5 Tips for Manufacturing Day Event Hosts

There are plenty of good reasons to Open Your Doors and share what Manufacturing really means to you, and if you're already registered as a host for Manufacturing Day 2015 we are here to help. If you're still considering whether or not to register an event at your facility, take a look at some of the extensive MFG Day resources available to you. Speaking of help, here are some handy tips for registered event hosts from our in-house help desk wizard:

Viewing Or Editing Your Events 


We have been answering plenty of questions about logging in to mfgday.com as a user to view or edit your event. It's important to remember that whichever email address was used to register the event, that is the login that must be used to view or edit it further. It is possible to add someone else's email address as a contact person, but that will not enable them to log in as the event administrator here. Since so many of you have asked about it, we are working on some changes for Manufacturing Day 2016 that will allow the event creator to add multiple users with editing privileges.

When you are logged in, you should see a Host Dashboard with a list of the events you may view or edit below the navigation bar.

Viewing Your Event Registrations


Once you have successfully logged into the site as a user, you can select the event you wish to view or edit from the Host Dashboard (pictured above). 
Just click the button below the map that says "View Registrations" and you'll see a list of attendees who have registered to come to your event (as pictured below)!

Closing Registrations For Your Event


Too many people signed up to visit your Manufacturing Day event? GREAT problem to have, but let's make sure we don't end up with more than we can handle. In the same section of the site that allows you to edit your event, you should see a checkbox like the one below that says, "Close Registration?" 

Check this box to stop more attendees from registering for your event.

Help Spread The Word


Help us, and everyone else, find your event online by using the hashtag #MFGday15 in all of your social posts and promotions. Remind your attendees that they can share photos (when appropriate) with this hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Prior to your event, post on your company's social pages and email communications using this hashtag to help attendees find your event, as well. Together we can spread the word about Manufacturing Day 2015 both online and in person. If you haven't already done so, be sure to find and follow our official pages on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn. Good luck next month, and have a great Manufacturing day!
