A B2B tech company saw the National Retail Federation Conference as the perfect opportunity to stand out from competitors and build new connections. But with the continuation of COVID 19, the conference moved from an in-person event to completely digital. They needed to quickly shift their event strategy while still meeting their goals of driving sign-ups for their sessions, expanding their Share of Voice (SoV), and encouraging targeted engagement to generate quality leads.
They needed a strategic agency partner to help them pivot their digital strategy and cut through the noise to reach and engage virtual audiences – in just 4 weeks’ time.
Creating a fully digital event experience
We knew we had to go beyond the platforms and build a truly digital-first, personalized experience to stand out from the competition.
We took an integrated approach to ensure their story reached CEOs, CMOs, CTO’s and Marketing and IT Professionals before, during, and after the event. Together, we created a digital event experience that took the audience on a journey through interactive creative, influencer content, and social engagement. This journey positioned them as the leader in innovation and creativity for the retail industry at NRF.
Breaking through the noise and driving event engagement
We turned uncharted territory and a bevy of challenges into exceeded expectations – maximizing ROI for the budget. The messaging and experience resonated with attendees. The creative strategy and high-quality content resulted in them finishing the event in the top spot for SoV.
