Crushing Event Marketing: Tips, Tricks, and Tech with Melanie Reid
Picture this: It’s Inbound22, and we’re hustling the floor until we see something that completely steals our attention. The Bizzabo booth with a t-shirt printer machine and a gazillion possibilities for marketers to create their own tee.
Fun fact: the t-shirt strategy also helped their team really understand booth visitors and cater conversations based on their persona.
Naturally, we were all over it.
Currently at Riskified, Melanie’s crushing it as their Event Marketing Manager. And in this episode we discuss:
🎉 The importance of building networking schedules and custom excursions for attendees
