Workshop - Engaging Event Strategies

Raise the Stakes: Welcoming New Stakeholders into your Events Strategy

Engage key stakeholders in your events strategy to achieve groundbreaking results. Everyone knows this already, don’t they? But looking beyond the usual partners when it comes to your events strategy may yield unforeseen benefits. Two associations will share their experiences engaging stakeholders from diverse aspects of their ecosystems: synchronization of regional, national, and international organizations to produce a series of unique, interrelated events; and integration of patients and host cities into a cohesive medical events strategy.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Build upon common identity and shared values to drive stakeholder and membership engagement
  • Establish appropriate engagement tactics for each segment
  • Leave your organization’s mark behind after the event’s conclusion
