Learning more about how exhibitor strategies are evolving and their impact on exhibition organizers will be the key topic of discussion led by Exhibit Surveys’ top executive on June 14 during the World Meetings Forum 2013.
Jonathan “Skip” Wilcox, CEO of Exhibit Surveys, will lead the discussion aimed at major exhibitors, who are the lifeblood of an exhibition in driving attendee value, according to Exhibit Surveys. But the major exhibitors are evolving in how they use exhibitions strategically.
The economy and shrinking budgets have forced major exhibitors to re-think their event strategies. But there are other long-term factors in play, such as competition for marketing budgets and new marketing channels, that will have an effect on the way major exhibitors go to market and the way they will use exhibitions in the future.
It is not whether major exhibitors value face-to-face engagement channels; it is how they use them, according to Exhibit Surveys. For organizers, the key to being a strategic partner to exhibitors is to understand how they are evolving in their use of exhibitions and events, and how they view exhibitions fitting into their overall marketing strategies. The presentation will be based on experience measuring and consulting with multi-national companies who exhibit in major exhibitions.
