What is Event Marketing? Event marketing is a promotional strategy that involves face-to face contact between companies and their customers at special events like concerts, fairs, and sporting event. Brand use event marketing entertainment (like shows, contest, or parties) to reach customers with sample or displays. Event marketing campaign provides value to the people beyond information about product or service. Event marketing targets specific individuals or group at gathering spots hoping to make some great impressions.

Event Marketing, who employs it? If a business is able to track and identify their target audience, they can find ways to appeal to them. A good example would be if a company sell hunting gear, then they can market at a hunting event. If a company provide a product, then they can give out samples as long as that sample is not illegal. For the companies that cannot hand out sample such as pharmaceutical or doctors’ offices can set up interactive experiences to consumers.

Event Marketing, how is it developed? Event marketing is rare because each event is approached differently. Most marketing team do not have to come up with plans, instead they base each event marketing tactic upon the brand and fits it into the event. Companies consider three aspects when doing an event marketing plan. The company first consider the personality their brand trying to convey. Example like Coca-Cola has tried to place their product as a harbinger of global, happiness and simple. Second, companies must keep their target audience in mind. Third, companies need to know what lasting impression they wish to leave on their audiences.

...important incidents in the Philippines that shaped the course of its history. These are events - both good and bad - that are equally important in nurturing and strengthening the solid foundation and sense of nationalism among the Filipinos. Prior to the Spanish colonization, the Philippines already enjoyed a rich culture and tradition, still evident among the indigenous peoples living up in the mountains or along the coast. For more than 300 years, the country was under the strong grip of the Spaniards – who abused and caused the death of many Filipinos. They introduced many colonial impositions, particularly regarding economy, such as polo y servicio, tobacco monopoly, tributary system, cedula personal, cash-crop economy and so on. However, despite all this, the Spaniards have also contributed so much in Philippine culture, language, education, architecture, Filipino mind sets and most importantly, the introduction of Christianity in the islands. By the 1900s, the Philippines became the only Southeast Asian country to be occupied, if not totally colonized, by the United States. They came to “civilize” us, justified by the so-called “Benevolent Assimilation” - educating the Filipinos, introducing to them what a civilization is like, and when all things are done, leaving them strong enough to rule their own country. However, their stay in the Philippines was marked by many tortures and bloody events, yet, they introduced a better system of education in the Philippines......

An Event

...It was one of the few events in my life that I felt totally compelled to attend .When Elijah and I had broken up two years ago ,it was an acrimoonious parting .We were both too young then to value the relationship and in the end ,decided we could eventually talk to each other in a civil manner before breaking up .Now he was going to be married to someone else ,and I was invited. I knew that my bossom friends were expecting me to turn down the invitation ,which made me even more determined to attend the ceremony .I felt that I was mature enough to handle such event and wanted to lie to rest the rumours about me still hurting after all this time.It was certainly an important event for me as it was golden opportunity to prove my strength once and for all. "My maturity was at stake!" I thought. On the day of the wedding,I woke up bright and early,determined not to be late.I had laid out my white dress which had been picked out the week before.I was going to look good and be gracious at the wedding.I could let "bygones be bygones," period. The sun shining in a clear blue sky and the rustle of leaves,as they brushed against each other on the gentle breeze,was like soothing music to my eras.When I left the house,there was still a good two hours before the wedding.I decided to go and window-shop at Queen Bay which was next to the church so as to be sure that I would be at the event on time. The shopping centre was particularly crowded at that time,being a......

...have pretty much begged the company to either stay or move to where they would benefit the most. ConAgra has studied consumers based on behavioral segmentation. They have had to recognize how their segment reacts to their unchanging foods. They divide on whether the new educated user will keep buying their product or will decide to move on with the rest of the modern society. ConAgra is using an undifferentiated targeting strategy. They are targeting a broad spectrum of people in their marketing. The action that the company is taking could be very beneficial. They get to take advantage of the tax incentives and also get to appeal to a more diverse group of consumers. In Chicago, they will have a more collective and unified company which usually results in higher morale. In the long-run they will end up saving money. Many cities were wanting the headquarters to reside in their city. This gave them a competitive advantage of a location for their business. They will be able to have their marketing department focused on the unity of the corporation. Instead of dividing up attention for each line of production, they can put forth the effort of minimalizing costs. One risk that they could run into is letting go of too many workers. There could be many risks in doing this. They might not have enough workers to do the necessary jobs for the business. Another risk would be entering into a market that might not be quite what they are used to. ConAgra has normally had a segmented......

Marketing Event in 2014

...Consumer behaviour and loyalty to a particular brand are of great importance to anyone working within the field of marketing and advertising. Whether we are talking about an object to be sold or a service to be provided the presentation and quality are the first thing that the consumer will take into account and that will determine by enlarge the success or failure of a brand or a particular product from a set corresponding to one brand. The examples I have chosen are products that provide the same functionalities to the consumer, however the way and the presentation that they accomplish this task is vastly different. The products I have chosen are Operating Systems and they are: Microsoft Windows 10 Technical Demo and Ubuntu 14.10. Both of them were released in October of 2014 and we will examine their properties as products and also the consumer reactions to the products themselves. First we must define the term Technical Demo. It can be defined as the incomplete product that provides basic functionalities that is released to the public for free, so that potential clients and customers can properly measure the utility and usefulness of the product or service. An analogy to this are free trial memberships for services, use of on-line shopping website (www.amazon.com). As know “consumers are a brand’s most important asset”. Knowing that a wise for a company to invest a significant amount of resources into research in the field of consumer behaviour in order to......

...Tragic events are those events that causes great abruption and powerful impact, which ends up having a universal response from all the people (Arkkelin & Veitch, 1995). These types of events could be hurricanes such as hurricane Katrina, volcano eruptions, floods, or even disasters that are totally unexpected such as the airplane crash of September 11, 2001. The analysis after this traumatic event underlines the understanding of how individuals perceive, respond, or change their behavior when facing global threats. The plane crash of 9/11 caused a fear of uncertainty and left individuals wounded in realization that, indeed everyone is exposed to vulnerability and that even within our comfort zone, it takes few seconds for our whole lives to turn upside down. The article chosen for this analysis is of Bornstein & Hendricks (2007), which talks about the stress responses that were faced by adolescent living in the Washington area. The article will include adolescent perception, personal characteristics, and maternal characteristics. The Theoretical Basis of the Article This article sheds light on unique perspective as few studies have examined the after effects of war or natural disaster on adolescence from an ecological point of view. This article concentrates on maternal characteristics, personal characteristics, as well as the perception of the adolescent towards the primary giver (Bornstein & Hendricks, 2007). From a young age, a child will use same or similar...
