Event Report HULT PRIZE

Attendance :dancers:

Was it well attended? Was there a diverse attendance in terms of gender, socio-economic class, race? Who was attending - students/professionals/a mix? Yes, the HULT PRIZE was very well attended by students. The event has received around 500 registrations in total from students belonging to different domains.The attendance was diverse in terms of gender, race and socio-economic class.

Venue :school:

Any comments on the venue, did it work well? Include links to the location if you like. This is the first ever global event that has ever been organized in our college. So for holding all the participants I had to reserve - One Auditorium and 2 conference halls. These 3 places worked perfectly and I divided the organizing teams to manage the event successfully.

Planning vs Implementation :paperclip:

Did the schedule change? Or run over? No, the schedule did not changed. All 2 days were planned nicely by all of us

Did you have enough swag? Did everything get to you on time and did anything not get taken by your attendees? The swags were sent before time by GitHub Team. Everything went well.

Positives :+1:

  • Hult Prize turned out to be one of the most successful event of NIT Hamirpur and also made NITH the first NIT in India where Hult Prize was conducted.
  • Received very positive feedback from students, judges, and mentors.
  • We managed to have good number of sponsors.
  • Social media promotions done right. We made announcements related to event on all 3 social media channels (fb, instagram, linkedin), also announcing sponsors and mentors.

Negatives :-1:

  • It could have attracted more students if we would have started with the promotions early.
  • Many students didn’t participate because of end sem exam preparations.
  • Merchandise quality was not good, we need to test samples from now.
