Building Communities that Foster Thriving, Year-Round Engagement (Hybrid Event)

October 25, 2023 @ 11:30 am1:00 pm CDT

Engagement isn’t a means to an end at your event or experience. Rather, it’s turned into a year-round mission that’s key to retaining, growing, strengthening your communities. But first, you must build these active and collaborative groups to foster communities that advance your engagement strategy. Join your industry peers for lunch at the Encore headquarters in Grapevine as we learn from our Best-in-Class speaker, Will Curran. In this session you will learn how to:

  • Discover year-round engagement frameworks and strategies that involve your community long before and after a single event or experience.
  • Understand the keys to fostering and strengthening communities that are thriving with brand loyalists.
  • Develop strategies and outcomes that enable you to tie community outreach and engagement to event and bottom-line business goals.
