Jason McGraw with InfoComm and Stephen Nold with MTO Summit discusses how leading events and trade shows are using social media to improve the design and development of communities. Wanting attendees to have more dialog and engagement using these social media tools, InfoComm seeks to create networking tools and to extend their marketing reach beyond the direct marketing already in play. In lieu of traditional surveys and focus groups, which take time for response, social media gives InfoComm more immediate relevant information. Learn how to improve attendee recruitment and member loyalty through the use of these tools.
