The need for show organizers to integrate a digital engagement strategy into their event plan continues to prevail as the industry progresses. While the evolution of the event landscape has posed new challenges, the industry shifts have also created an immense amount of opportunity.  

The idea of “connections were made, business was done, the show is closed, the job is complete,” is a methodology of the past when it comes to interacting with your audience. Now more than ever, organizers should be looking for ways to deliver omnichannel experiences for attendees and create options for their audience to engage through their preferred communication channel.
