Event marketing should be one of the primary ways you build visibility and create good relationships with current and prospective clients. Pick several types of events and slate them now for the coming year. Then work backwards from the event date to ensure you meet key dates for communications and logistics. Not only will your clients and prospects enjoy seeing you as participant and/or host, but your staff will enjoy the fun and purpose-driven activity.
