PRODUCE EVENTS THAT ATTENDEES WOULD BE EAGER TO PARTICIPATE

INSTILL {FOMo} — FEAR OF MISSING OUT — HERE IS HOW

 

 

 
"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities."

 

CREATE EXCITEMENT ABOUT THE POSSIBILITIES OF YOUR PRODUCT

 

By creating exciting interactions among your clients and prospects, who who have similar desires and aspirations, you transcend your  brand products and services from the weary business of transaction into the higher realms of association and conversation.

Live brand events creates positive impression in the mind of the consumer (partially because of the social interactions with other people), "the experience itself becomes a tool for connecting and bonding with others by, for example, talking with family members or friends about the stimulating, captivating experience."

WHY THE POPULARITY OF 3D EVENTS IN THE AGE OF DIGITAL REALITY?

 

BECAUSE, EVENTS HELP YOU DEMONSTRATE WHY YOUR AUDIENCE SHOULD CARE ABOUT YOUR BRAND

IN A hyper-competitive BUSINESS TERRAIN, and A data sensitive MARKETING environment,

YOUR BRAND SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON THE VALUE YOU PROVIDE TO YOUR audience

THAT YOU ARE trying to reach

 

“Good marketing or advertising is about giving your audience a reason to care about your brand,
showing them the 'why' they should care."

EVENTS LAVISHES YOUR BRAND WITH QUALITY TOUCH POINTS

 

In the digital age of "DIY" people are craving for one-on-one attention and hand-holding.

They want familiarity in business, and quality touchpoints. The more personal (not personalization) service, you offer your prospects, the more likely you’ll be to convert them into customers and brand advocates.

Events help yours brand to become personal — that is impossible to recreate digitally.

EVENTS ESTABLISHES A FACE FOR YOUR DIGITAL EXISTENCE

 

Inspiring your audience through online  content, social media, and digital story telling is a proven method. But, the social media deluge is driving a shift.

“The millennials who are the most likely to part with their cash are finding those they invest with in person. They have invested and seen it not work out - and so now they are leaning into their senses or intuition by actually connecting with the people they want to work with in person this time.”

 

EVENTS ARE CREATED TO EXTEND AN UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

 

Technology driven unique experiences is gaining much traction. On top of that you get a chance to show off your quality service. Thus, fascinating your fans with memorable and interactive, shapes their perceptions of your company.

"Millennials love experiences, and experiential marketing is a great way to target this brand savvy demographic. This experience-based shopping has already seen major success."

 

 

 

3D EVENTS FUELS A SENSE OF BRAND BELONGING AND FEELING

 

IN A HYPER-CONNECTED DIGITAL SOCIETY, OnE-THIRD OF THE POPULATION SUFFERS FROM HYPER-ANXIETY

BECAUSE, SOCIAL ISOLATION AND A lack of belonging fuels anxiety, loneliness and disengagement —
This impacts the potential of communities, businesses and brands

DESIGN AND ENLIVEN EVENTS WITH ONE DETERMINATION —
IT NEEDS TO BE THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE OF YOUR TRADE AND Commerce

EVENTS HELPS YOUR BRAND TO BE PERCEIVED AS A CONNECTOR

 

In the “connection economy ” value is generated by making connections, rather than "pumping widgets out of the tail end of an assembly line."

As a potential vendor, your job is to help your client succeed on all fronts — above and beyond the services, that they hire you for. By inviting quality speakers at your events, providing networking opportunities, and carefully orchestrating introductions, you become more than just a vendor; you become a connector and a value added resource, too.


 

 

EVENTS PLAY A POWERFUL ROLE IN SEEKING CLIENT REFERENCES

 

INTENT, CONTEXT AND IDENTITY will help marketers more effectively reach their targeted customers.

Although you deliver a superior service and take opportunities to ask for referrals, nothing sparks a reminder like an in-person interaction. People are more willing to introduce their connections to people they know and trust. When you authentically connect with attendees in person, you’ll earn their trust and respect. Use this to your advantage to drive further ROI from in-person interactions.

 

 

EVENTS HELP YOU GENERATE IMMEDIATE FEED BACK LOOP

 

Events allow consumers to try out products in real time before they buy it and take a hands on approach with the purchase process.

They can give you valuable feedback in real time, which will allow you to address potential questions or issues right away, creating happy, informed customers.

 

 

 

OUR DIGITAL Reality IS REALLY ABOUT

COLLABORATION AND CONSTRUCTIVE CONNECTIONS

 The current paradigm of commerce isn’t about digital – it’s about connection.

 

Also called the ‘relationship economy’, the ‘experience economy’ and even, by Rolf Jensen, the ‘dream society’, the connection economy should place human interaction at the heart of every business. Success is measured by the ability to create and connect.

As Dean van Leeuwen says, “the ability to form meaningful, emotional connections and relationships…and will have as far reaching an impact as the industrial revolution had 200 years ago.”

 

 

TO EFFECTIVELY HARNESS AND DESIGN YOUR 3D EVENT EXPERIENCE, GET TO KNOW

THE THREE DIMENSIONS of CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

 

 

“What brands need is for audiences to not only see and hear their messages but also to recall them, connect with them on an emotional level, even tell their friends about them, and ultimately to buy something.”

 

 

 

best practices FOR ORGANIZING YOUR OWN EVENT

DEVELOPED BY @SKYLINEEXHIBITS, THESE PRACTICES HAVE BENEFITED OUR CLIENTS

 

 

who will attend your event
sponsors and partners for your event
achieveable budget for your event

 

PLANNING AND SURVEYS

The success of your private event depends on understanding what your attendees expect to get out of your event.

Conduct extensive surveys of your stakeholders (attendees, exhibitors, etc.) to determine why they’d attend your private event in lieu of some other show.

 

 

 

 

SPONSORS AND PARTNERS

Maybe for purposes of revenue or sharing the work you don’t want to go it alone. But remember having “partners” in an event means you also have more people to answer to and possibly slow your decision making.

 

ADOPTING AN ACHIEVABLE BUDGET

The costs of sponsoring your own event can be a real eye-opener. Even if, you own your own event space, all the operational expenses that would otherwise be borne by a third party now becomes your responsibility.

Include line items for everything from booth design, setup and tear down, venue/exhibit facility rental fees, marketing expenses, insurance, and security.

 

 

 

SEASONED EVENT PROFESSIONALS ARE AWARE THAT ANYTHING THAT CAN GO WRONG USUALLY DOES GO WRONG

 

 

While planning AND LOGISTICS is key, it’s also important to roll with the punches during THE execution PHASE of
YOUR event

"Not only can you, simply, not control everything, but often the most exciting and most memorable moments emerge from those unplanned experiences."

ONSITE PRACTICALITIES

Think carefully about your venue. Does it have the adequate space, ambiance, and amenities for audience and your programming?

1. Consider the varying needs of main lectures, break-out events, or accommodating your VIPs.

2. Do you have sufficient furniture and A/V resources?

3. Do you have banquet and janitorial help on-call?

4. Is parking adequate?

5. If you need ancillary hotel or contractor help, research and secure those six months in advance.

6. Book a block of rooms at a nearby hotel, and check to see if the hotel is willing to provide shuttle transportation to and from your venue.

 

EVENT PROGRAMMING

Map out a timeline for all events you hope to hold, and include a sufficient buffer to make up for latecomers, lunch breaks, technical difficulties, and other common sources of delays.

Decide who will give your introductory and closing remarks, what type of programming will fill the morning and afternoons, whether you’d like to include a guest speaker or demo/product launch, and any after-the-event parties you may want to organize.

Be mindful of:

  • Why are they coming to your event and what do they want to accomplish?
  • What do you want to accomplish once face to face over the course of the event?
  • What do you want them to take back with them (literally and figuratively)?

 

SIGNAGE AND DISPLAY MATERIALS

The display materials you’ve used for external trade shows will likely need to be supplemented for your private event. You will need way-finding signage, designated staff to help with attendees needs, and perhaps digital signage that you can update on-the-fly to present news and developments.

A follow-up assessment is critical in determining if you have obtained the results that justify the extra work of hosting the event. You will make some mistakes and find things to improve in your inaugural event.

However, it’s when you think everything is perfect and smooth that you need to really think about shaking it up so your event doesn’t get stale in participants eyes!

 

 

ADDING IMMERSION TO YOUR EVENT EXPERIENCE IS ONLY ONE LAYER OF MARKETING

Glisser

The real-time screen sharing works by the presenter uploading his/her PowerPoint, Keynote, Google Slides or other presentation program. The system allows for animations, transition and embedded video.

In addition, the product provides for digital Q&A, live polling, twitter feeds, audience note-taking and analytics. Attendees gain access through a web app with a custom short web address (no download required).

Good quality Wi-Fi access for attendees greatly enhances the experience.

 

MeetingPulse

MeetingPulse’s second screen feature is their real-time Pulse product that allows the speaker to see in real-time the “pulse” of the room. 

Participants can vote at any time that they like the content being delivered, disagree with it, are confused by it or they want the speaker to speed up. The speaker can see the audience sentiment immediately and react to the room’s feedback as it happens.

There are lead capture capabilities if desired, and also raffle capabilities to randomly pick a member of the audience. At the end of the presentation, the speaker or event host can see the spikes of audience emotions correlated to the timeline of the presentation.

 

ConnexMe

ConnexMe has similar features to Glisser, including web-based slide distribution, digital note-taking on the slides, live sharing of the slides, audience response polling, and live questions.

Additionally, there are many engagement tools such as audience-generated heat maps in response to polls, presenter and attendee annotation, and other tools.

It is part of an overall event app which includes agendas, push notifications, private messaging to other attendees, session evaluations and event analytics.

ConnexMe is a native event app (both iOS and Android) with web applications for the interactive features.
