You must brand to expand.
Washington, DC (Vocus) October 7, 2010
“You must brand to expand.”
That’s the advice DC-based marketing consultant Bob James, The Mighty Copywriter, offered conferees at Association Marketing Day, sponsored October 7 by the Direct Marketing Association of Washington.
James insisted that branding remains essential to any effort to expand the audiences for tradeshows, which have declined since the economic meltdown of 2008.
“Knowing your audience’s catch factor and letting them know you know are crucial to growing attendance,” James told listeners during a panel session entitled, “Innovations in Increasing Your Meeting and Convention Attendance.”
James also discussed 35 best practices for attendance promotion, culled from new research provided by the producer of the Large Show Roundtable, a closed-door gathering of managers of the nation’s largest tradeshows that takes place three times yearly.
James was joined on the panel by Craig Blake, Senior Vice President, Nexus Direct; Margaret Core, Managing Director, Sales and Marketing, Biotechnology Industry Organization; and Christine Maple, Marketing Manager, Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute.
