Traverse City, MI (Vocus/PRWEB) March 31, 2011
Stressing over itineraries, travel expenses, booth setup and breakdown, and more; all hoping to gain qualified leads? Oneupweb has the answer for business-to-business companies who want new clients, but don’t have the time nor budget to exhibit at marketing expos—at least not physical ones.
“Be Relentless 2011 is the free online event that will attract purchase decision makers of mid-to enterprise level companies,” explains Oneupweb CEO and founder, Lisa Wehr. “It’s all about getting the appropriate audience in front of fitting vendors. I’ve done the tradeshow circuit on Oneupweb’s behalf; it’s always a gamble, draining and pricey—so I sat down with my marketing and PR teams and we decided it was time to change all that.”
Wehr knew she wasn’t alone on her thoughts of exhibiting at physical events after speaking with other B-to-B execs. Knowing the importance of showcasing services, work and products in an expo atmosphere; she researched the virtual event industry and was baffled to find little cost-effective opportunity for B-to-B companies—like her full service digital marketing agency.
“I was disappointed, but then quickly thought, ‘hey why not host our own event’,” says Wehr. “The point of putting this event on is to bring together the best B-to-B vendors and to connect them with qualified prospects—creating a true win-win situation that eliminates the prohibitive time and cost expenses of a physical tradeshow. We are hosting the event, Be Relentless 2011, on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 and we’re using the very best virtual event platform on the market, Expos 2.”
For only $2,000 B-to-B exhibitors will receive a virtual booth in the expo hall and a 30 minute video presentation in the official auditorium as a bonus thought leadership opportunity. Below are just a few of many exhibitor benefits:
- Live chat with attendees
- Up to 10 pieces of collateral in exhibitor booth for instant download by attendees
- Direct link to company website
- Complete contact information for every attendee who visits the exhibitor’s booth
- Custom promotional pieces: online banners, e-newsletters, email blasts, Facebook tab, site badge, national media releases, social media promotion and more
“We aim to have 5,000 attendees, so that each lead can potentially cost exhibitors less than 50 cents,” explains Wehr. “We’re ready to offer the best opportunity for those who exhibit at Be Relentless 2011. Instead of breaking the bank and running around with your head cut off, it’s time that success comes from seeking affordable, innovative ways of connecting with prospective clients—Be Relentless 2011 will bring success to exhibitors without forcing them to leave their desktops.”
