We predict 2024 is going to be the year a majority of event planners will begin to use artificial intelligence (AI) to plan meetings, conferences, group travel and more. Let’s face it, for decades event planning has been a time-consuming and taxing process. With so much busy work, planners historically have had little time to actually be creative, coming up with ideas that will ultimately engage and inspire their audience.

AI solutions like ChatGPT and Google’s new Gemini can help event planners streamline their workflow, automate monotonous tasks and provide useful templates that allow planners to generate effective campaigns faster than ever before.

13 Ways to Begin Using AI to Plan Your Events in 2024

Here are some specific ways event planners are already using AI successfully to create compelling marketing collateral and personalized content as well as improve overall communication with attendees and prospects.

Create Targeted Promotional Emails

We have found ChatGPT to be incredibly valuable when creating promotional emails that we want to resonate with a specific demographic. Thanks to AI’s contextual understanding and text-generation capabilities, you can quickly and easily write attention-grabbing welcome, post-registration, and reminder emails.

The key with using AI is to get incredibly specific with your prompts. So in this example, you could write a prompt that says:

Create a welcome email for a conference happening on the 15th of March 2024 in Austin, Texas, targeting financial planners. Cover the keynote speaker and the networking opportunities and what guests should look forward to.

Here is what ChatGPT gave us with this prompt:

Subject: Welcome to the Financial Planning Symposium in Austin, Texas!

Create Landing & Registration Page Content

You know you need a website to send prospects to to sign up, but you don’t have the time or skill to create compelling content yourself, and you don’t want to spend any of your budget on hiring a copywriter. This is no longer a problem with AI.

AI can quickly and easily create landing page content that communicates your event’s purpose, value, and objectives to prospects. You can also easily use a tool like ChatGPT to develop content for FAQ sections as well as content for your registration page that drives action.

Designs Surveys and Feedback Forms

Surveys and feedback forms are invaluable for planners to gain insights into how their future events may be improved. But man, they can be a beast to create yourself.

Use AI to quickly and easily develop a list of questions for a survey that will assess event satisfaction, speaker and presentation quality, and networking opportunities. Or use AI to create a feedback form for specific event features such as exhibit hall and keynote speakers. 

Drafting Webinar & Sessions Summaries

A perfect example of a tedious task that needs to be done but no one has the time (or wants) to do is drafting summaries. Here’s what you do: Use an AI tool like Sonix to quickly generate a video transcript. Then feed this transcript into ChatGPT to quickly draft session summaries.

TIP: Feel free to tell ChatGPT (or whatever AI solution you use) how many words to write. So for a summary, you can tell the tool to ‘keep it under 300 words.’

Generating Content for Press Releases and Articles

Another incredibly important task that no one really has the time or inclination to do. Press releases can be incredibly tedious to write, so why not give this to-do to AI?

ChatGPT can help create content that communicates your event’s key details and highlights, as well as your organization’s main concept and objectives. 

Here’s an example we just created with ChatGPT:


Write a short Press Release for an upcoming conference on August 24th in Charlotte, NC on experiential marketing. The conference features industry experts, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. Highlight the conferences focus on developing strong marketing skills and the expected outcomes of the event.

Tips to Getting Started with AI for Event Planning

If you’re new to using AI solutions like ChatGPT, there is a bit of a learning curve to get it to work for you. Here are some guidelines to get you started:

Train Your AI

You can absolutely train your bot to give you the kind of content you need. For example, you can start by feeding it examples of content you like. So find some emails, press releases, or social media posts you want it to mimic. Then, be sure to provide detailed context about your event including title, date, locations, targeted audience and your overall objectives.

Adapt the Tone

You can (and you should) tell ChatGPT to adopt a specific tone of voice in your content. For instance, tell it you want a corporate voice, a funny tone, uplifting, motivational, etc. 

Be Specific

The golden rule with AI is you’ve got to be really, really specific with your prompts. If you write short, generic prompts, you risk getting outputs that are not very usable.  Here are some insights on how to write effective prompts.


ChatGPT will help you streamline your process and create content for you very quickly. But you always want to be sure you add your own touches to the final product. As amazing as AI is, it’s not human and it doesn’t know your organization like you do. So allow it to do the heavy lifting for you but make certain you tailor your content and messaging to suit your specific needs.

The Wrap

Make 2024 the year you start leveraging the amazing power of AI. Easily create content and messaging that speaks to your audience and drives action. Just be sure you are feeding your bot what it needs to help you. Be specific and hone in on exact details for best results.

And if you need help planning your events in 2024, give us a shout. Sure, we’re merely human, but we’re experts on how to create experiences that attendees’ remember while helping you stay on budget.
