THE SOURCE - OUTSOURCED EVENTS
Recently, we’ve been reading lots of articles suggesting that marketers in general are spending more of their budget on technology. Certainly, we’ve seen a move away from printed collateral, especially as we all strive for sustainability. With that in mind, in this edition, you’ll find our thoughts on event apps and how to choose what is right for your event. 

Meanwhile, if you, like many of our clients, have a global marketing team, then ensuring that internal messaging and marketing strategy is communicated effectively to your Field Marketing Managers can be a challenge. We take a look at how face-to-face internal events tackle this head on, including a case study about how EMC do just that with their annual marketing kick-off.

And there’s also great insider tips on a restaurant in Amsterdam, something a bit fishy in London, and whilst Cloud Expo and TFM&A are both being hosted in the city this month, our spotlight shines on the UK’s capital.

If you still need more advice, don’t worry: we’re here to help. Call for a chat on 0208 995 9495, or drop us a line.

Event Apps, the choices…
Without a doubt, if you run regular events, then developing a mobile app is becoming the norm. In 2013 over 60% of people throughout the world owned a smartphone and this is set to rise, so at the very least you should be optimising your event website for mobile use. We take a look at the choices available from bespoke apps to free-to-download event apps. Find out more
