Event & Date of Presentation
INCON Booth IMEX Frankfurt, 23 May 2019
What has changed over the years with respect to Event Marketing? What made it possible to shift from the traditional Marketing Mix composed by the 4P (Product, Place, Prize, Promotion) to the more actual 3E (Evaluation, Engagement, Experience)?
More and more businesses need events as their ultimate marketing tool to showcase their products or services, but above all to promote their brand. In fact, connections between business and audience are mainly virtual and happen in the digital world, but meeting face to face still remains the most human way to connect with a brand and to live the experience of the brand first-hand. Here is where Events still show up in the scene! It’s now up to Digital Marketing to activate the connection between a virtual relationship with an experiential one, because it allows to market the idea of the event experience to the target audience before it happens! In addition to that, it is crucial to understand which are the steps to take when setting up a Digital Marketing Strategy: this process goes through phases of data analysis, evaluation of situations, understanding of the audience and its preferences, etc.. It’s only after several sessions of brainstorming and study, that a winning strategy can be created! Finally, it is fundamental to always keep up with transformations of digital marketing processes, which have never been so changeable and dynamic. Understanding the future of Event Marketing prepares our Industry to the challenges to come!
