Stand out from the Crowd Workshop
Making Festivals, Tradeshows and Events work for your Food Business
Wednesday, May 10th – 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Trying to decide how to incorporate event marketing into your company’s agenda for this year? Thinking about participating in some local festivals, tradeshows or events?
Event marketing is a great way to get your brand in front of the public, develop buzz and cultivate loyal followers. But most companies do not fully leverage events to grow their customer base, qualified leads, or maximize both short and long-term impact.
Join event marketing experts Nicola Williams (The Williams Agency), and Mindy Harris (Mindy Harris Communications) for a workshop on how to get the best ROI out of your event marketing. Learn how to prepare for the event, assess your target audience, maximize your display, become a promotional partner, and post-event follow up and evaluation.
Make events work for you. Use them to grow your business.
Workshop will be held in conjunction with Speed Trading – quick one-on-one producer/buyer sessions, which will connect local food businesses to key prospective accounts. Space is limited for speed trading. (*Note: We will not be accepting anymore PICKLE or DAIRY vendors for May 10th Speed Trading)
Register for the Event Workshop, Speed Trading or both. Stay for a networking lunch with food industry colleagues.
Workshop- 10:00am - 12:00pm
Networking Lunch- 12:00pm -1:00pm
Speed Trading- 1:00pm -3:00pm
