Your organization and clients make investments in events and meetings–whether they be investments of time, money, human capital, or other resources. And in your role as the event professional, it’s crucial to provide the data, reporting, and analytics necessary to demonstrate that these investments are paying off by impacting the bottom line.
Data (and corresponding actionable insights) make it possible for you, as the event professional, to gain buy-in from your stakeholders to continue the program, increase the event budget, hire more resources, and effectively secure your seat at the table as a strategic advisor.
Unfortunately, according to a Harvard Business Review Report, only 23% of all surveyed companies say they can track the ROI on event investments.
In this webinar, a panel shares what metrics matter today, how to make a plan to capture data, and most importantly, how to turn that data into actionable insights that resonate with stakeholders and clients.
