The Perfect Expansion To In-Person Events

This powerful supplement to in-person event sponsoring offers unique marketing capabilities that complement existing in-person efforts.

Expanded Reach

Travel restrictions and budgetary-based roadblocks for a standard in-person event are removed – allowing for a larger audience of your high value prospects to attend.

Expanded Influence

Some public fleets with a finite budget that may have traditionally had to pick and choose only key individuals to attend can now expand the opportunity to more of their team – across multiple disciplines.

Expanded Frequency

Your digital footprint and ROI is not limited to the LIVE iteration. Garner additional exposure, engagement and leads well after the 12-month archival period – plus our archival marketing campaigns.
