  8. 8. Research findings • A larger event with an appealing line-up is a great awareness tool for Europeana • Location is important • The countries with the highest representation in our network are Netherlands, Spain, UK, Italy, Germany, Greece and Romania (in size order, all over 100 members) • Based on the 2018 AGM the most engaged of these communities are Romania and Greece (both had over 10% of Network members attend). Spain were the least engaged with 0 attendees. • Our biggest sectors within the network are Cultural Heritage professionals (1,003), Educators (513) and Researchers (219) • ‘Competitor’ events are more expensive than Europeana normally charges • The event venue is used as a marketing tool for some • Some seem to have linked-up with the local tourist board/venue to use their promotional videos as event promotion MC meeting 6 March 2019 CC BY-SA

  10. 10. Event recommendations 1. Organise the event early November 2. Promote outside the network as well as within the network 3. If possible find a venue for free 4. Ensure we have a line-up that is diverse and fairly represents the backgrounds/interests of the audiences in our network, but is also interesting to those we most want to target outside the network 5. Have a number of different ticket offers to appeal to different audiences 6. Agree on a price (EB 175 / 225 / 325) for the conference and charge €100 more to non-network members. 7. We will investigate reimbursement options MC meeting 6 March 2019 CC BY-SA
