Promotion is a key factor in the success of any meeting or special event. Event promotion serves to attract attendees and / or spectators to the event and is also used to ensure that event sponsors achieve as much exposure of their name, logo and other properties as possible. Sponsors therefore have a keen interest in pre-event promotion. Concepts such as cross promotional activities and event merchandising and event-related contests and promotional activities are introduced through case studies.
