Regardless of the industry, business meetings play an essential part of operating a company successfully. They bring people together from different roles, departments, and geographical locations to discuss and align on the strategy that moves a company forward. However, an effective meeting requires more than just a group of people gathered in the same room. There are a variety of elements, such as the right venue, audiovisual, F&B (food & beverage), registration, agendas, and so much more, that when sourced, planned, and executed upon, create an efficient meeting that yields desired results.
Companies host Sales Kickoffs (SKOs) at the beginning of their fiscal year to gather for a critical, face–to–face, internal conference. SKOs are a great platform for sales teams to learn, grow, and re-energize for the upcoming year. It is a time to celebrate the past year’s successes and review the opportunities. The entire C-suite adds impact when they attend the kickoff, provide key strategic updates, and present defined goals.
While many companies hold meetings for their internal staff, software and technology companies host “user conferences” to pass down knowledge and best practices to their customers or members who use their products and services. It is also a fabulous opportunity for the hosting company’s sales force to be in front of hundreds or thousands of customers to sell upgraded solutions to customers who may have a previous or older version of their product.
When you first think about hosting an international meeting, you may think it will break the bank; however, this is not always the case. Whether you are trying to capture a new audience, enter a new market, begin a global conference, or simply host an internal meeting, your company can see the return on investment. Traditionally we think of ROI as monetary values, but international meetings provide a platform for intangible ROO (return on objectives) to outweigh the tangible. Increased brand awareness, relationship-building, knowledge exchange, and employee productivity are just a few reasons to take the risk to get the reward!
Whether it’s a product launch, sales blitz, training series, customer hospitality event, or a demand gen campaign, roadshows are an effective way to reach many customers, potential new leads, and partners in a face-to-face setting in local markets. There are few programs more effective than a roadshow for achieving direct engagement with an audience, however, the payoff comes at the expense of new logistical and creative challenges. Brightspot custom-builds each roadshow to accomplish client goals and prove return on engagement.
