Importing participants from last year events - Why?

There are two reasons why the import from participants profiles from "last" year event make sense

a) Participants doesn't have to re-insert their company profiles once again
b) Event organizers can expect a faster growing participants list


  • The import of "last year" participants makes sense if you expect that more than ~30% of the participants will attend again most likely.
  • If you expect that only a very small number of participants will attend again then its better to start with an empty participant list
  • Importing participants profiles only makes sense if the event type and focus is similar to the previous event. It's evident that is doesn't make sense to transfer "life-science" related company profiles to an "new energy" related event.

How can this import be managed?
