The increasing competitive pressures brought on by globalization are forcing business professionals to find new ways to engage customers. One way is through event marketing. It is defined as the marketing discipline focused on face-to-face interaction via live events, trade shows, and corporate meetings among other event types. Others define it as designing or developing a ‘live’ themed activity, occasion, display, or exhibit (such as a sporting event, music festival, fair, or concert) to promote a product, cause, or organization.
Is event marketing valuable in expanding your/your company’s reach to customers and clients? Join us in discovering how:
- Events provide unmatched opportunities for prospects and clients to interact.
- Events Facilitate relationships.
- Advantages of live events compare to other marketing vehicles.
This webinar – on Thursday, February 21, at 4pm ET/1pm PT – is open to all #WomenInTech, so please share this email with your friends and encourage them to become a part of the Alliance of Channel Women community.
