Benefits of Experiential Conference Marketing
Events promote interest. Experiences promote innovation. It’s the fundamental creed of our conference management specialists and the way we approach all conferences – be they intimate 50-person meetings or global developer conferences.
Which means, in plain terms, that GPJ focuses on active audience involvement. This encompasses everything from the first pre-event touch, to the physical and virtual experiences, to post-conference collaboration.
This experiential approach gives you the ability to:
- Build Stronger Relationships: We’ve seen it with every client with whom we’ve worked. An experiential conference is the perfect place to create meaningful connections and shorten sales cycles. Companies and clients have time to educate each other and engage in post-event discussions that accelerate business results.
- Stimulate Collaboration and Social Sharing: Conferences live and die on participant enthusiasm. GPJ conference tools make it easier for attendees to discuss their experiences, collaborate with colleagues and share their excitement both internally and with the outside world.
- Incorporate Interactive Technologies: Research shows that attendees who direct their own interactive experiences feel more invested in the event and its message. So when we use technology, we use it strategically – directing it toward the achievement of your key conference goals.
- Effectively Harness Conference Data: Better data collection equals better decision-making and customer follow-up. As part of our end-to-end marketing, GPJ captures data and intelligence throughout your conference. Then we help you to analyze it with the insight of our experiential conference strategists.
- Reduce Overall Costs: Our global conference management services remain in-house. This means you’ll see immediate efficiencies in planning and logistics, plus significant reductions in overall expenses. And with more than a century’s worth of experience in event planning, GPJ knows how to bring in a project on time and under budget.
- Produce Lasting ROI: At GPJ, your ROI is our ultimate benchmark. We’ll help you to huge increases in lead capture and attendance levels, streamlined processes and improved data collection – even international acclaim. But we’ll also develop conference relationships that will pay dividends for years to come.
