What Is Event Marketing?
Event marketing is an attention grabber that exists off the printed page or internet browser. It engages customers in their real day to day lives, often giving them a taste of what your service, products, and brand are all about. This can be something as simple and traditional as a bakery or restaurant offering free samples, or as complex as a national or global tour offering presentations, classes, or entertainment that all points back to a certain company. In some cases, event marketing can take the form of a stunt the grabs everyone's attention and creates a lasting memory of the brand behind it.
