Corporate Event News July 2018 Reader Survey – The Results are In!

September 20, 2018

A little over a year ago, we started planning the content and format for Corporate Event News. On Sept. 20, 2017, the publication was officially launched as a platform to bring relevant and timely news, data, tools and information to corporate event professionals around the globe.

Thank you for reading the articles and blog posts, and contributing your thoughts, ideas and suggestions. A number of you took the time to respond to our July reader survey, and the results may interest you.  

Corporate Event News readers bring a tremendous amount of industry expertise to the table. Thirty-one percent of survey respondents from our most recent reader survey shared that they have more than 20 years of experience, and 59 percent have been planning and managing events for more than 10 years.

Respondents overwhelmingly classify themselves as either corporate event managers or corporate event planners but a number also self-identify as trade show / exhibit managers or marketers who have events as part of their responsibilities.

While the topics we’ve been covering all got high marks, you’ve indicated that you’d like to see even more diversity. Based on the survey data, we’ll be working to bring you more “tips and tricks,” research reports, interviews, industry trends and articles relating to a broader range of event management responsibilities and professional development.

We’ve also used the information you provided to create a new infographic on the top challenges that corporate event managers face — so you can see the common struggles and know you’re in good company.    

If you enjoy reading Corporate Event News, please consider subscribing to our weekly e-newsletter if you haven’t done so already. We also always welcome relevant guest blog posts, topic suggestions, case studies and recommendations for corporate event professionals to feature in our event industry expert profiles.

We’ll keep on striving to deliver the information and tools you need to be more effective, more creative and more strategic, raising awareness of the importance of events to help you get the visibility and recognition you deserve.

From apps to chatbots to completely redesigned meeting spaces, technology is revolutionizing how events are planned, executed and experienced. It’s now at the core of most successful events and, ultimately, is instrumental in helping attendees forge meaningful connections and gain insight. The opportunities to create truly impactful experiences will only increase with the rise of “all-in-one” tech tools and the introduction of 5G internet.
