ARTICLES WORTH SHARING; MARKETING EQUALS ATTENDANCE

Achieving consistent growth in meeting attendance gets more challenging year after year. We've discussed in past newsletters the factors that play into these statistics, but knowing why doesn't change the facts. We just need to be able to adapt and make decisions based on the data. One thing that continues [...]

ARTICLES WORTH SHARING; UPDATE YOUR EVENT EVAL?

When Ann and I launched podiatrymeetings.com, the initial concept was to create an unbiased source of meeting feedback from both DPMs and exhibitors so we would be better educated in choosing the "right" meetings for continued education and company growth. Hence, we love a strong survey. In the article shared [...]

VIRTUAL SABOTAGE; LACK OF ATTENDEE APPRECIATION

Last month I shared an article with you: HCPs Weigh In on What Draws Them to Conferences https://www.meetingsnet.com/medical-pharma-meetings/hcps-weigh-what-draws-them-conferences It still continues to evoke areas that are worthy of discussion. I was particularly interested in the statistics regarding online continued education vs. in-person. What was found is that when it comes [...]

THROUGH THE YEARS; UTILIZING NOSTALGIA MARKETING

Nostalgia; everybody loves it! An article in techtarget.com describes Nostalgia Marketing as: "In marketing, tapping into nostalgia means associating a product, service or brand with memories from the past to establish an emotional bond." If you're looking for a unique idea to add to your next meeting/event, consider something that [...]

MARKETING MASTERY; TOSS THE TRINKETS

This tip could also go into the "Conquering Conferences" section of this month's vendor newsletter, but ultimately it's a marketer's job to determine what strategies should be utilized at meetings to attract foot traffic to the booth. Earlier this year, I read an article in EXHIBITOR MAGAZINE titled, "Swag is [...]

SALES SWAGGER; MORE SLIDES PLEASE

... said no one ever. However, in my personal experience, preparing more content creates confidence. If you are in a sales position where you are asked to give presentations to your prospects, your team members, or other members of your company/organization, it is likely there's always a bit of nervousness [...]

CREATING YOUR PRACTICE IDENTITY; THE WAY YOU SAY IT MATTERS

I am currently listening to a book on Audible from James Clear; it's called Atomic Habits. As he provides practice advice to help anyone achieve their goals in creating new habits, or eliminating bad habits, there was one area that I found particularly interesting - IDENTITY-BASED HABITS. Here's a quoted [...]

ARTICLES WORTH SHARING; GET THEM ON SITE AND AWAY FROM THEIR SCREENS

We can't say it enough... and we all know it... 2020 changed everything. Online learning, while always available, became standard and the benefits have stuck with DPMs. However, we know that when attendees experience a meeting in person, they are engaged in a much richer experience. As we continue to [...]

ARTICLES WORTH SHARING; WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH POSTERS?

I'm going to be 100% honest... the poster area of an exhibit hall is one that I just don't have much to say about. The only thing I can say I know about the posters is that most exhibitors find no value in being near them. I'm going to cut [...]

DO YOU HAVE TO CHARGE FOR EVERYTHING?

LET'S ALL WIN WITH A FEW FREEBIES If you've read my previous articles, you know that I start a lot of these the same way; by beating a dead horse that is one of a few foundational challenges for every meeting. So I'm going to do it again... Costs. Costs [...]
