Event Marketing

Integrated marketing campaigns are necessary for the success of face-to-face events. Starting with an in-depth analysis of our audience, we develop a strategic marketing plan that includes event branding, creative design, collateral production and delivery, demand generation (direct mail, email and online campaigns), list selection, media relations, advertising, customized campaigns, and much more. IDG World Expo builds significant, cutting-edge communities for each of our events that feature Web 2.0 and social networking technologies that generate year-round event enthusiasm and customer loyalty. Committed to developing more strategic and cost effective ways to deliver attendees to events, IDG World Expo’s marketing team continually measures the success of all promotions. IDG World Expo’s Marketing Department has over 75 combined years of event marketing experience. Our staff has created and implemented campaigns for some of the biggest events in the industry as well as for targeted seminars and roadshows.

Content Development

Conference content is crafted to deliver education, training and networking opportunities for attendees. Conference sessions are spread across a diverse yet integrated set of tracks that have been fully researched and developed to ensure content is in sync with the priorities of both attendees and the industry. Throughout our events the focus is on accessibility to demonstrations, flexible learning and intensive education that goes well beyond what’s available in the office, on the Web or in the classroom. From Birds-of-a-Feather meetings that allow attendees to network with their peers to exciting keynote presentations that enable attendees to hear from industry leaders, our content development team is expert in providing a holistic learning experience.
