Are you a sponsor or an attendee? Since you are heading to the event with your team/company, make sure you do not leave any stones unturned in showcasing your booth or the hall – adorn your area with color, your logo and the message of your company to boost brand prominence of your company/team. You can get your crew to wear the tees which reflect your brand logo and the tagline or any special message optimized to the #MKTGnation. At the same time, you can get all the laptops, smartphones, tablets, adapters and other devices plastered with the brand logo. Marketo provides sponsors with a locker and a combination lock – however, fees for a locksmith, when required, and liability of belongings are not covered.
It’s time to go social
You need to get social to view, share, comment and get into the action to be part of the buzz on the Marketo Marketing Nation Summit. Make the most of the top trending hashtags including #MKTGnation while you share and showcase images of your booth, activities, meetings with clients, your experience, comments, quotes and excerpts of keynotes, and of course, the glitzy bits of Marketo gala events and parties. That’s why you need to be active on all major social networking channels to be more seen, heard and meet new prospects, grow network and meet clients with whom you can build long-term business relationships. Major social channels that are buzzing the most are Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn which will bring you loads of opportunities to increase your social footage as well as business networks. Besides using social media apps on your smartphone and tablets, once again, we are reminding you to use the Marketo Summit app which doubles as any major social networks you target in building agendas, sharing comments, photos, latest updates, following prospects, and industry leaders you will meet at the summit.
Don’t miss the essentials
Finally, do not miss the essentials, and by essentials, I do not mean your grooming kits, but rather tech essentials which will keep your devices running from morning til night. Since you are going to use a slew of apps, such as a navigational and location app, business card scanning app, printing app, social apps, photo editing apps, email apps and more, you’ll need to keep your devices juiced up with power from time to time – so, carry a good and large power bank which supports your smartphone, laptop, tablet and camera. You can also keep a travel adapter handy. Make sure your devices are cased in rugged, protective covers to keep them safe from accidental slips or drops at the busiest hours of the day.
Marketo recommends purchasing a hardline internet connection to stay connected outside the Expo Hall, since sponsor Wi-Fi is available there.
