5 Successful Tips to Promote Your Conference

This article is brought to you by Congress Bookers, a reliable accommodation partner for lead pharma companies worldwide.

If you wanted to promote a conference or an event 15-20 years ago, you would rely heavily on TV, radio, newspapers, magazines and word-of-mouth. Offline media ruled and actually worked…until online media took over.

If you want to promote an event today, you’ll need to be your your audience is and that’s mostly online. Everyone owns a smartphone and is at least on one social media platform. The good part is that you can reach out to a larger number of potential attendees. The bad part is that another 100 conference organizers are trying to get to them first.

We’ve put together this blog post to help you with promoting your conference by analysing 5 ways in which you can reach your target audience. All of them combined should result in higher attendance rates.

 

Start early

Start planning and promoting your conference as soon as you have set the date. You will add details (like avenue, speakers, topics, etc) as time goes by and things begin to settle. The truth is that attendees need time to prepare for a conference. An early promotion gives them more exposure to the event and more time. Also, you can include early bird tickets to boost early registrations that usually work pretty well.

 

Use Social Media

As mentioned in the introduction, you’ll need to be where your potential audience is and social media is one of those places. Through social media platforms, you can communicate with people who would be interested in your conference.

On Facebook, you can create an event and then promote it. This will help the conference gain a lot of traction among those interested to attend. You can also partner with relevant influencers and ask them to share your event or/ and write a few lines about it for their friends and followers.

Create a conference registration page that’s easy to read and to navigate so that when people get on the page they immediately understand the actions they need to take to register – make sure you include a minimum number of registration steps if you don’t want visitors to get tangled and leave the page.

Use hashtags on Twitter and Instagram. On Twitter, hashtags not only help promote your conference but they help attendees network and share with each other even after the conference is over. Good conference hashtags are short and include the conference year.

Don’t shy away from paid social media. This is a very effective way to target people in your industry. Use targeted ads to promote to your industry with links directly to the registration page.

 

Blog about it

Every time you have something new, blog about it and share the news on social media. Also, ask speakers to write a post about their sessions and give a sneak preview of what they’ll be discussing. This way they get more attendees interested in their session, and you get free content to drive ticket sales.

 

Use good old email newsletters

Many see email campaigns as going out of fashion but the truth is they still work pretty well. Some great tools that can help you with this are: Campaign Monitor, MailChimp and Active Campaign. Each lets you send to an uploaded list of recipients, track the open rates and manage subscribing and unsubscribing.

Potential and registered attendees need to learn new fresh information about your event. Emails for early bird closing, new speaker announcements or activities in the event location keep them engaged.

 

Don’t forget about post-conference activities

The truth is that, when you have a recurring event, it’s never over. You have to undertake promo activities prior to the event but also to let fans, speakers, attendees know how great everything went. Post-event interviews, videos, pictures, “thank you for attending” emails work really well.

It’s really important to go out there and show the whole world how amazing everything was so that those who have missed it, come next year and those who came, feel proud that they did.

Last but not least, put yourself in your audience’s shoes. Write what you’d like to know if you were thinking of attending a certain conference, never be a stranger, always be there.

3 Reasons Why You’ll Fall In Love With Kraków the First Time You See It

This article is brought to you by Congress Bookers, a reliable accommodation partner for lead pharma companies worldwide.

 

Legends say that Kraków was founded after the defeat of a dragon and the dragon-slayer ascended the throne. There’s definitely a mythical atmosphere throughout the city nowadays.

While the Wawel Castle is a major tourist attraction, the Old Town is also quite amazing with its churches, impressive museums and the Rynek Główny, Europe’s largest market square. Kraków is a perfect blend of past and present and that’s very well reflected in the former Jewish quarter, Kazimierz, where synagogues stand as a reminder of the tragedy of the 20th century, while the lively squares and streets reflect the renewal of the 21st.

 

Wawel Cathedral – A Walk Back in Time

This Roman Catholic church is over 900 years old. Interestingly enough, the Gothic cathedral we see today is the 3rd edifice on this site. The 1st one was erected by King Bolesław I Chrobry and destroyed in the 11th century and the 2nd one, built in the 12th century, was destroyed by a fire in 1305 when only the Crypt of St Leonard survived.

Wawel Cathedral

The Cathedral has seen many coronations, funerals and burials of Poland’s monarchs over the centuries.

The moment you’re in front of the edifice you’ll notice the massive iron door and the prehistoric animal bones hanging on a chain to the left. It is believed that these bones have magical powers and that, as long as they are there, the cathedral will also exist.

When inside, you’ll be amazed at seeing a multitude of sarcophagi, tombstones and altarpieces scattered throughout the cathedral and giving you the feeling of belonging to a different time.

 

The Museum of Pharmacy

This is the Jagiellonian University Medical School’s Museum of Pharmacy and it’s one of the largest and the best museums of its kind in Europe.

Museum of Pharmacy

Hosted in a historic townhouse, the museum is laid out over 5 floors and features a 22,000-piece collection that includes old laboratory equipment, rare pharmaceutical instruments, jars, barrels,traditional herbal medicines, medical books and documents, etc. Its exhibits include full-scale reproductions of ancient apothecary shops. There is also an exhibit dedicated to Pole, Tadeusz Pankiewicz, who operated a pharmacy in the Kraków Ghetto during WWII.

 

Oskar Schindler’s Factory

desk

Former metal item factory Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory is hosting two museums: the Museum of Contemporary Art in Kraków and a branch of the Historical Museum of the City of Kraków where the fate of Schindler’s Jewish workforce features prominently. Approximately a sixth of the museum’s exhibition is dedicated to them.

The Historical Museum of the City of Kraków also features prewar Krakow, the German invasion of 1939, what the city was like as the capital of Poland under the Nazi occupation, what everyday living looked like, the underground Polish state, as well as the Soviet takeover of the city.

Oskar Schindler’s office has been very well preserved over all these years.

Hope to have convinced you that Kraków should definitely be on your list of travel destinations, especially if you’ve always been passionate about history, science and mythology.

How 6 Big Pharma Companies Use Twitter to Engage with Audiences

This article is brought to you by Congress Bookers, a reliable accommodation partner for lead pharma companies worldwide.

Pharma companies have begun to embrace different communication channels, including social media, to promote their products, present their drug development initiatives and engage with audiences worldwide.

However, make no mistake, social media is not the same for pharma companies as it is for regular users. Without proper planning, controls and staff training, firms risk fines, sanctions and worse, damage to their reputation.

Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are the main online networks that pharmaceutical companies are eyeing. In this article, we’ll take a look at how pharma companies like Bristol-Myers Squibb, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Merck and Novartis use Twitter to maintain a close connection with their existing and potential patients.

Also, Novartis has one account devoted entirely to oncology clinical trials @NovartisOncCT that allows patients to find out if they qualify for trials.

On their general Twitter account, they update their audience on the latest drug research and development initiatives, post news related to partnerships and collaborations, etc.

Screen Shot 2017-06-13 at 09.29.44

In June 2014, the FDA released its social media guidance regarding the presentation of risk and benefit information which prevents pharma companies from marketing their drugs on social media without presenting the risks associated with their use. However, pharma players have found creative and useful ways of attracting and keeping their audiences engaged. Chapeau!
