Our role as event professionals is to create experiences steeped in trust, where our audiences feel their participation in our event was the best use of their time and financial investment. This requires our event designs to bring out the best in human nature by making intentional decisions based on the knowledge available about our participants and their needs. Deeply understanding how human beings respond in live event environments is our new currency.
This webinar will look at what it means to:
- Create, market and deliver events in a mobile, social world, where your participants are "five-senses" engaged throughout the event, and leave feeling they have applicable knowledge.
- New connections they will continue to nurture and ultimately, the event was worthwhile and worth returning to.
- Solid information and easy tips and tricks will be included throughout you can implement immediately.
