Hello everyone, recently I have seen a big thing happening all around the IFC, this being involved with events. The first big time I saw this happen was this event there was supposedly 45+ people who said they wanted to come and would come, I was there and there was not over 45 people. This is not really fair to many people, it’s not fair to the other people who signed up for the event or the event sponsors and most of all the event creator who put several hours into making the event.
If You Want To Back Out Do It Earlier
If you sign up for a event but then realize that you can’t come that’s ok, you could have made a mistake on your calendar or just genuinely messed up and thought you were free but you weren’t. If you back out the day of the event it doesn’t really leave a good impression for the event creator of the event flops or doesn’t go to plan.
At Least Say You Are Backing Out
The biggest point of all, if you realize that you can’t come at least tell the event creator that you can’t come, don’t just be silent and skip it, take a moment to honestly tell the event creator that you have to back out and you can’t make it.
The biggest example I have experienced was my Auckland event.
This event had 18 people sign up but just 4 attended, really? 14 people couldn’t come? 2 people actually told me they couldn’t come but 12 people silently decided to skip the event and not do anything, this is ridiculous.
I hope we can all be a bit more fixed on event dates and times as this is something special about the IFC, let’s make events fun for everyone!
