Hi Charlie, welcome to EventTribe. Great to have you join us. What is the biggest challenge you are facing in your role at the moment?
Hi Alexandra, thanks for joining us and welcome to EventTribe. I would imagine your target audience is highly targeted. Are you using digital or is there trade media?
Hi Melissa, it is indeed! It is mainly digital media at the moment (facebook ads) but we have some articles and ads going into magazines - for example for our junior course we have an ad in a families magazine.
Hello everyone! I’m Zaira!
I’m a Content & Social Media Manager for Sönd Skincare a.
I am currently working on creating events that will focus on a holistic approach to skincare. Looking for brands with a similar holistic approach to collaborate with so we can provide a full experience to our consumers so they can Feel Good, leave with a more positive mindset, gain new knowledge and leave motivated to improve their health.
we are a small team so any advice and help will be appreciated it
Sounds like it’s certainly worth testing the families magazine. I’ve found social media ads very hit and miss but search and digital display much more effective. Really depends on the audience and the event type though I think.
Hi Zaira, welcome to EventTribe. Lovely to have you join us. What format are you planning for your events? Are they seminars, workshops, demonstrations, parties or something else?
I’m would say a type of workshop maybe? I’m not too sure, to be honest. It would be based on some physical activity, meditation and some talk about a healthy balanced lifestyle is beneficial for your skin.
Thank you Melissa. Yes so far the facebook ads haven’t really been working for us too well. I will definitely look into the search and digital display
Maybe you could test out different formats and set up opportunities where your target audience already congregates e.g. gyms, mums groups, alternative therapy centres, golf clubs, etc.
Hi everyone ! Happy to be here.

I am here to better understand the challenges of event professionals and particularly those related to digital.
Nice to meet you all and I’ll keep reeding the forum carefully.
Welcome Theophile! Thanks for joining us and introducing yourself. How did you first start working in the industry?
Hi everybody! I am Derya founder and director of Love Makes Events, have been living in London around 1 year. My company basically gives service for about baby shower, birthday, private parties (engagement, henna, wedding, anniversary etc.) as well as corporate events. All my designs are bespoke and I really love my job! I care about to attend many networking events but my biggest challenge is finding right client audience. Rest of it I can handle, hope to meet you all very soon, Many thanks
Hi Derya, welcome to EventTribe. How have you promoted your services previously to the various audiences you mentioned?
Thank you Melissa!
I started to work with the industry two years ago by chance. My former company was a B2B travel agency and we sometimes worked with events companies. That is when I first realized events planners were not totally happy with the current travel offer.
Interesting! Well done on seizing that opportunity. Hope all is going well!
Actually giving an advertisement on Facebook & Instagram, attending many targeting facebook groups and posting about my company, for next month giving an advertisement to one of a magazine about families, attending networking events and dropping my leaflets to many places.
I can say these as promotion till now,
Hello, My name is Clarice Groendal! I am a new content marketing specialist for Hubb, an automation platform for event content management. I’m here to learn more about how to manage the best events possible, as well as the challenges that come up when trying to manage those events. I will be expected to help with events management in my new role, which I have never done before, so I am hoping to also get tips from the experts!
Sounds like you’re doing a lot of great things and networking is always a good plan. I would also recommend search & display advertising if you have the budget.
Hi! I’m Kathleen, living in East Providence, working in Dedham, MA. My company puts on educational events that teach people how to use SAP software. Our biggest challenge right now is eval response rates. We recently switched to all session evals through our event app and the response rates tanked. Any suggestions for how to fix that?
