You’ve always thought about producing events, but maybe you’re afraid it takes too much work? That can be true, but hosting great events isn’t out of reach. MediaShift has been producing events since 2009, including everything from mixers and workshops to symposiums and weekend hackathons. We have a great track record for bringing together the right people and the right strategies to make meaningful events come to life.
Great events don’t happen by accident, of course. It takes a lot of hard work and time to find the right people, book a venue, get good speakers, and then promote, promote, promote! I’ll explain how MediaShift got started in events — with simple mixers — and how we use our entire team to help promote and run events. I’ll also address how media outlets can best make use of their platform before, during and after an event. (Note: We don’t run large conferences, and this training will not focus on those.)
What you’ll learn from this training:
- How to get started with events
- How to develop planning strategies and streamline the work
- How to promote your event via social media, email outreach and more
- Tips for running events on-site
- Slides from online training
Who should take this training:
- Publishers who are interested in running media events
- Event planners who want to know more about media events
- Anyone who wants to help produce successful events
Date and Time: August 24, 2016; 1 pm ET / 10 am PT
