The rise of virtual and hybrid events has led to opportunities for audience expansion, increased points of data capture, amplified digital engagement, and integrated lead scoring opportunities.

Events build a greater picture of interest in a fraction of the amount of time it takes to capture the same insight across other channels or tactics.

Break down siloed thinking

Strategy, teams, and technology were fragmented in our pre-pandemic world which was dominated by in-person events. According to a Forrester survey,  66% of event managers planned events independent of marketing campaigns. (Forrester, 2021)

The New Event Marketing Opportunity offers a path towards better alignment.

Without a shared purpose there is no reason to collaborate, no glue to keep people working together, no alignment to be achieved. Success begins with a shared goal.

Create an experience

In this new era of digital disruption, event types and event formats have exploded. To achieve measurable outcomes, it is critical to align the event type with the event format — along with the teams, strategy, and tech that facilitate them — through a programmatic event channel. 

Event Type

An event type is a category of event created to serve an objective.

Meetings, seminars, trainings, forums, summits, conferences, and trade shows are all examples of event types.

Event Format

An event format is how your event type is delivered to meet the objective.

In the new event landscape, choose from virtual, in-person, or hybrid event formats to serve any event type.
