Event marketing and marketing an event are different things… and they are inter-connected. On this episode our guests share the state of the industry as they are seeing it through working with a variety of corporate clients over the years.
Several strategic themes resonate throughout this show… be authentic, be purposeful, be critical, be agile, and always show value.
It's important to look at your event portfolio holistically. Determining the events to hold and attend, to sponsor, and to speak at – looking at all of these things with a critical eye is something that should be done annually. Having an "outsider" help you do this is also a way to help take the emotion out of these decisions.
Particularly poignant in this episode is the talk about measuring everything you’re doing to PROVE the value of events (and to promote change).
