Send a message to request feedback after an event. The message is sent a week after the event. Only contacts who registered for the event receive the message.


  • Invite contacts to provide feedback about an event or conference.

  • Encourage post-event engagement with your brand or company.

Marketing Inspiration​

  • This automation adds all event attendees to a separate group. The contacts' other group memberships are not affected. Extend this automation to communicate and interact with your event attendees.

  • Add a step to this automation to include a message that thanks attendees for their registration and providing event details. Save the registration confirmation as a prepared message. Add another ​Event-based Job​ module to the whiteboard. Connect it to the ​Event​ module that reacts to registrations and select the job ​Send Prepared Message to Contact (C)​.


To know who successfully registered for the event, you need to use conversion tracking. Conversion tracking tracks when a contact reaches a goal page on your website. In this case the goal page is registration confirmation for the event. See Conversion Tracking​.
Each conversion tracking has a unique name in the system. You need to know this name before you start.


This procedure has three parts.

A) Create the prepared message RequestFeedback​.

B) Create a new group ​EventAttendees​. This group contains only the contacts attending your event. You can use this group to communicate with attendees.

C) On a whiteboard, create an event-based automation that stores the date and time of conversion in the contact's profile.
On the same whiteboard, create a time-based automation that sends the prepared message 7 days after the event.

A) Create the Message​


In the ​Quick Links​, click ​New Message​. Add the message content.

Save the message as a prepared message. See Save Draft as Prepared Message​.
