Michael Heipel Concept & Consulting: Overview of services

  1. 1. Overview of Services Michael Heipel Concept & Consulting www.concept-consult.info
  2. 2. Consulting and Training for Trade Show, Congress and Event Organizers – Where Strategy Meets Technology
  3. 3. Push your attendance with exciting content! Everyone talks about inbound marketing. Informative, useful or entertaining content will raise the visibility and relevance of your event on Google and social networks. How do you find the right content, though? How do you tell your story? And how do you create infographics, blogs, whitepapers or videos without spending a fortune? Together with your team, Michael Heipel Concept & Consulting develops your content strategy – positioning your trade show or conference and reaching your target audience. Learn from case studies and make your event a success by implementing content marketing. Topics What is content marketing and why is it so relevant for trade show and congress organizers? Content strategy: What works well? How do you present your content? Tools for content research, curation, production and promotion Learn from the best conferences and trade shows – an analysis of case studies from around the globe How to streamline email, web, print, social media to support your core messages and to raise your market success Live blogging: Create added value by reporting live from your event (pictures, video, text, social media). Outsourcing of event blogging and social media management Training Coaching WorkshopKeynote 3
  4. 4. Efficient email marketing for trade shows and congresses Email and newsletter marketing is still the most important tool to market conferences and trade shows. Why are there still so many organizers yet to tap the full potential of this channel? How do you write better emails? What makes the recipients open a message? What will the mobile revolution hold in store for your email marketing? How do you grow your subscription list and qualify your data? Together, we‘ll analyze email campaigns for trade shows and congresses, discuss the success factors and develop multi-level communication campaigns. Hands-on training how to do a/b testing of headlines, how to write and design good emails will round up the program. Topics Email marketing – dos and don’ts: What kind of campaigns work and which don‘t? Case studies: Exceptionally good email design and success factors Hands-on training: How do I write better email? Integrated, interactive campaigns: email, landing pages and social media Benchmarks: How do you know your campaign was successful? How do you measure success? Training Coaching WorkshopKeynote 4
  5. 5. Training and coaching to grow your revenues from stand sales, sponsoring and advertising Trade shows and conferences are multi-dimensional marketing tools. They are the most important B2B marketing tools for many companies. Yet, they imply substantial investments.. Off-the-shelf sales trainings do not meet the needs of event sales staff. Customers want holistic marketing concepts rather than square meters. Michael Heipel gets your sales team up to speed. Based on more than 20 years of experience in managing sales teams in the trade show and congress business, your trainer will focus on the specifics of your business –bringing your team to top performance levels! Topics What’s in it for me? Hitting the nail on the head with excellent value propositions for your exhibitors Not for me? How to handle objections and turn sceptics into satisfied customers Social sales: Lead-generation via social media Selling concepts: How to develop tailored communication concepts for exhibitors and sponsors Motivation- and incentive systems: How to facilitate top sales performances Individual coachings and team trainings Training Coaching Workshop 5
  6. 6. How apps and digital tools will make your conferences and trade shows more interactive and more attractive Digital transformation affects events, too. Digital tools offer added value for visitors, exhibitors and organizers of b2b events, streamlining online registration, conference and trade show preparations, networking and lead generation. Lots of suppliers are prepared to deliver innovative services for trade shows and conferences. But that doesn‘t make it easier to find the right partner! Michael Heipel Concept & Consulting offers orientation in the technology jungle of apps, systems and other tools. He presents decision criteria to select the most appropriate vendor. An independent technology expert, Michael will support you in your tenders and implementations. This is how organizers can make the most of their investments in new technology and software. Topics Case studies: How do planners use event technology to offer added value for their customers? What is the upsale potential of digital tools? Market overview of solutions in the areas of registration systems, software for lead generation and matchmaking, mobile apps. Workshop: Determination of targets, strategy, decision criteria and specifications for technology tenders Training Coaching WorkshopKeynote 6
  7. 7. Meeting Design Would you buy a poorly designed car? Do you not care at all what kind of clothes you wear? Design plays a major part when we take purchasing decisions, consciously or sub-consciously. Still, a lot of planners put too little emphasis on designing their meetings and events – starting with a clear definition of objectives, the design of the room, the timeline, the formats, interactions up to the implementation of event technology. Meeting Design is still a fairly young but exciting field. It aims at adding value to meetings and events, by focussing on networking opportunities, interaction, surprising and engaging event elements. Training and coaching on the topic of meeting design is very interactive. Together, we work on scenarios and develop ideas, how meetings, conferences, trade shows and corporate events can be designed more effectively. Topics How do we learn? Understanding the psychological basics Setting targets: What makes an event successful? Meeting design tactics – formats, techniques, technologies, design elements that make events more attractive and more effective Test runs of interactive formats (e.g. fishbowl, world café, audience interaction tools) Training Coaching WorkshopKeynote 7
  8. 8. Temporary department and project management Special situations in the trade show and congress business require flexible and reliable management solutions. For example: acquisitions, mergers, new projects, filling staffing gaps or creating new business models With comprehensive management experience at trade show and congress organizers as well as event agencies, Michael meets the requirements for such complex management challenges. Detailed references will be provided upon request.

  10. 10. Testimonials „Management Forum is a subsidiary of the publishing group Handelsblatt. Content marketing is of growing importance to us when promoting our events like NEOCOM or the German Retail Congress towards the right target groups. Michael Heipel has set up the workshop „Content Marketing“ for our project and marketing managers. The two days have been very helpful to us to position the events and find the right topics for event promotion.

  11. 11. Testimonials „Michael Heipel has conducted a 1-day sales training with the team of „Land and Genuss“, our B2C fair. The focus was on defining customer benefits for our target groups as well as learning how to lead sales conversations, handle objections and close the deal. We started with a group training, followed by individual coachings of our sales staff.
