The Event Farm marketing team is getting ready to host an event series. As our CRO, Chad, likes to say, it's an exercise in eating our own dog food. The marketing team prefers to think we're sipping our own champagne.Read More...
People care about experiences, maybe now more than ever. We live, after all, in what's been dubbed the "experience economy." We've all seen the statistics about millennials' willingness to spend more money on experiences than tangible products, and there's a reason I can talk about FOMO without having to tell you what the acronym stands for. Businesses and organizations that once existed exclusively online—retail stores like Warby Parker and media sites like Mashable—have created real-life experiences by either opening brick-and-mortar stores or by fully embracing events and experiential as part of their business strategy.Read More...
Hiding behind Apple’s HomePod introduction at WWDC 2017 was an announcement that will transform the way technology is used during events: iOS 11 will include NFC support.
NFC-enabled technology allows event professionals to create a wide range of customized experiential activations—everything from streamlining event logistics to creating show-stopping tech.

This is a guest post by Courtney Spero, a Marketing Communication Specialist at Creative Group.
The role of technology in meetings and events has moved beyond its initial purpose of simply providing convenience. While convenience is important, there’s more room now to get creative with tech offerings that will leave lasting impressions and engage audiences. As long as your meeting and event tech is approachable and intuitive, you’ll be able to excite any audience, no matter their technical know-how.
At Event Farm we’re constantly in contact with event marketers, and we understand that event pros are busier than the average busy person. Between securing venues, finding speakers, hiring a caterer, and making sure every last detail is in place, event pros also have to find time to get the word out about their event.
Even if you have graphic designers creating a registration page and beautiful invites for your event, they might not have the time to create design assets to help market your event to a wider audience on social media.
But social media platforms are valuable tools for marketers, and you don’t want to lose out on the opportunity to attract your social followers to your event. Even if you don’t have a “design eye” or high-end design programs, there are plenty of resources to help you create aesthetically-pleasing social media design assets—and create them quickly.
Event marketers today are inundated with technology and diverse platforms to aid in strategy management and execution.
While all of these different technologies are intended to make a day in the life of a marketer easier and more automated, sometimes softwares end up working in a silo. Without integration of different platforms within your tech stack, you’re more likely to miss key data about the holistic prospect or customer journey.
