Learn how to build your Virtual Event Implementation Strategy March 21, 2012 ASAE Conference Center, Washington DC

Virtual events are a critical communication channel for associations and tradeshow/conference organizers. Virtual events require a strategic, integrated approach that combines marketing, sales, education, membership, customer service and IT. Most event organizations have little idea on how to set up a strategic and tactical plan to effectively benefit from this important digital channel.

We propose to help you.

A one-day, face-to-face educational seminar, the EastVirtual Event Workshop will help attendees go from little or no virtual event knowledge to knowing the first steps on how to build a 30-day implementation strategy.

We’ll provide the basics on what every virtual event organizer needs to know (“Virtual Events 101”); plus the information needed to build a solid implementation plan.

We’ll take attendees rapidly from a “10,000-foot” view of virtual events to a “500-foot” one. We‘ll examine the issues surrounding the different business models; help the organizer plan her sales strategy; outline staffing needs; and provide information on the latest technologies. The strategies to engage attendees and deliver effective (and profitable) programming will also be discussed, with a close look into how best to approach pre-event planning and post-event assessment. We’ll also cover exhibit and sponsorship sales plans; audience acquisition techniques; ROI calculations; and how to budget realistically for virtual events.

Attendees will:

§ In a single day, go from “zero to 60” MPH in virtual event know-how, completing the workshop 100% comfortable they can proceed with implementation.

§ Receive 100% actionable content, free of vendor bias and self-promotion.

§ Learn the key factors to making a virtual event a success or failure.

§ Define how to build a budget and revenue/expense model that fits internal resources.
