Using what you do at your company as an instrument to market the next company event. Sometimes you are so focused on the marketing concept and recruiting the companies that the counsel of an event marketing firm will not be explored. Some event firms will not be properly paid, and the event website will be done when it seems that the event marketing firm would be the last thing you want to do.
Risks in operating your own event website:
Develop a precisely developed and designed website and at least one that is hosted and managed by a web hosting company. If you do not understand what web hosting is, it actually means a website that is maintained for you by the hosting company.
You do have control over the information that appears on your website and do not have to pay the hosting expense if you decide to have everyone else use it.
Many companies provide a simple .jsp file for you to add web links, navigation menus and videos to. However, you will want to hook into a service that collects data from your website and posts this to your company’s website.

And honestly, if you are IP cut out at your event brochure, you should probably have to do this.
Your Event Website will be the symbol of your next company event; your logo, brand, and marketing, right on your website. You will be able to reach out to those interested in the event and inspire them to attend the next event. The reason that you are hosting this event is because you know that people are interested and you do understand this. I find it amazing that times have changed so much, and the sophistication of people’s event staffing efforts are so great. Yet, sometimes it is overwhelming to the client or you don’t want to do your own site. However, what these people do not realize is the website is not only free of charge, it can be a ton more productive because these [survey] tools allow you and prospective clients to position the website by career, concern, geography, etc. You can even use that data to get a better understanding of who those persons are. This has been an awesome tool for me to understand what body language the customer is communicating, and what type of messaging needs to be presented to the prospective customer, client or employee.
