Mobile Marketing ImageYour organization needs a mobile marketing campaign for the same reason you need a computer and wi-fi access this is the age in which we live! Walk around any major city or airport and you'll find more than just a few folks with faces glued to their Smartphone screens. According to recent reports, 40% of users' internet time is spent on mobile devices, which means simply ignoring the rise of mobile just isn't an option.

Attend this pre-conference workshop and learn how to use a mobile campaign to market your events, deliver added value at your events, and sustain attendee interest after your event.

Your workshop is divided into the three (3) phases of implementing a mobile marketing campaign for your events:

  1. Marketing your event via mobile channels
  2. Delivering engagement via mobile during your event
  3. Sustaining post-event attendee attention for your next event

Each of the three phases will be covered in depth during the workshop. The workshop will follow the following format:

  • Speaker Presentation
  • Breakout Session

Each section (marketing, delivering and sustaining) will open with a presentation illustrating best practices and emerging techniques.

Next, the breakout section will give you the opportunity to work with your peers on how to best leverage new techniques to keep your event 'front and center' for your attendees.

Phase 1: Marketing Your Event

During the Marketing Your Event Phase, you will learn how mobile web, social media websites and mobile apps can be brought together to provide a cohesive build up to your event.

Learn how prospective attendees can find out about future events and why mobile technology is the key to marketing/discovery. You will also learn a quick-start way to buy mobile media to target new event attendees. See how the latest mobile payment options are making it easier for a prospective attendee to pay for an event. Take away ideas on how you can best leverage social media to keep attendees and potential attendees informed on event milestones and key information.

Phase 2: Delivering Your Event

During the Delivering Your Event Phase, you will benchmark what organizers are doing to provide the latest information to attendees via mobile delivery methods as an event is being presented.

Strategies will range from high tech to low cost to illustrate that you do not need a small development army to pull off an engaging technology to support your event.

Phase 3: Sustaining Attendees After Your Event

In many ways, keeping your attendees engaged post event is more important now than ever before. With increased travel costs, as well as more competition for attendees to attend events, it is more important than ever to be aware of how engaging your attendees post event can sustain future events.

Your past attendees are people who have paid and support your programs. Neglecting post event engagement can be the difference between an event growing in popularity or struggling to avoid declining attendance in years to come.

With the right amount of engagement and information sharing, you can keep your attendees coming back for years. In addition, you will learn how to turn attendees into evangelists so they bring their colleagues along for the next event. In this final session, you will see how mobile technology can be a core driving factor in maintaining a strong engagement with your customers and clients.

Workshop Breakout Sessions

The workshop breakout sessions will have guided exercises that will assist you in developing your own strategic plan for employing mobile marketing before, during, and after your next event. With the help of your peers and the workshop's leaders, you will walk away with an action plan on how to use mobile technology and tactics to set your event apart from the competition.

Our goal as speakers is not for you to become a mobile expert, but for you to be able to know which mobile technology to apply to your specific event thus you can apply the take-away ideas to your next event.
