Running Event Check-In for 8,000 Politicians Without Causing a Congressional Riot

In my first three days at Event Farm, it was sink or swim time. Every June, Event Farm runs the check-in for the Congressional Baseball Game — interacting with over 8,000 politicians and hill staffers in the blazing sun, ensuring they get into Nationals Park in time to see the partisan runs and strikes.

I had experience running event check-in for smaller affairs but nothing ever to this magnitude, and I learned some valuable lessons based on what we did well and what we could have done better. I hope that my takeaways will help you on your next large-scale event. We also created anevent check-in checklist that is very helpful for asking yourself questions ahead of time.
