On July 29, 12:00 p.m. EST, The Society of Independent Show Organizers Marketing SIG will host a webinar on Freeman Event Research’s Consumer Sentiment Study. It will be presented by Ken Holsinger, SVP, strategy – data solutions, Freeman, who will outline the latest findings and lead a discussion on the critical and exciting opportunities ahead.
It’s an exciting time to be returning to live. Our communities are craving connection and there is great opportunity ahead of us all, but key to unlocking that will be ensuring we have an understanding of how our customers’ needs have evolved and how we as event marketers and executives are addressing those needs and unlocking actionable insights to move our events and communities forward.
Audience sentiment data reveals benchmarks and opinion shifts that are crucial to address as events return. Our data shows it won’t be business as usual, and that’s a good thing.
