With so many competing events out there, is it a great time to launch or grow events? How can you be sure that your audience will attend your event?
Attendees are critical to driving revenue, whether through paid tickets or by pushing sponsor sign up and renewals for next year. What’s the magic formula?
We interviewed Jennafer Ross, CEO of JR Global Events. She knows how to get butts in seats and has developed strategies to keep the attendance roster sold out. Here’s what she had to say:
What are three best practices that niche media companies can use to stand out from the other events?
“1 – Thinking outside the box – less about the way “it’s always done” and more about creating the “un-conference” setting.
2 – Less is more – and keep it simple – overcomplicated and overdone is just plain overwhelming for anyone. -Simple, precise and clear communication is key.
What revenue channels do you think many event planners overlook?
