Virtual events have been a stand-out channel in B2B marketing recently. They've enabled marketers and salespeople to promote services and network with prospects without having to leave their homes. If you're a marketer for a training or elearning company you may have an important role in identifying opportunities at relevant virtual events.
So how do you set out to plan events participation? At Achieve B2B Marketing we advise starting with your objectives. These may be getting your brand noticed. It might be positioning a colleague as a thought leader. It might be lead generation. It may be many things, so consider your marketing objectives when planning events. During 2021/2022 we're all faced with a mixture of virtual, blended and physical events. All have advantages and disadvantages.
To help you navigate the right events for learning companies, we've published a calendar of events for you to identify marketing opportunities for training, edtech and training services.
