THE SHARING ECONOMY: WHAT UBER AND AIRBNB CAN TEACH EVENT MARKETERS
As more and more consumers gravitate away from owning stuff and gravitate towards renting, borrowing and swapping it, it’s changing their expectations for their experiences, too. Get a better sense of what the explosion of the sharing economy means for event marketers and their attendees. Learn how to evaluate and then refine your event’s overall strategy and technology extensions to better acknowledge this cultural shift. And walk away with a list of actionable ideas for how to infuse your event portfolio with some of the sharing economy’s most irresistible and effective attributes, including a sense service, collaboration, social sharing and ease of use.
