Why hold an event with SlatteryIT?

Events are one of the most effective ways of identifying, reaching and engaging with the people that will grow your business now and in the future. That’s why, for more than a decade, SlatteryIT has been delivering events that possess many of traits and features that progressive marketers are now seeking to harness: high quality and relevant content, direct and personalised customer interactions, a combination of quantitative and qualitative market research, even crowdsourcing.

We find that events are of particular benefit to our clients in the IT and ICT industries, as they offer a unique opportunity to demonstrate and explain complex technologies and comprehensively address customer questions and concerns. Your experience at an event will provide you with an invaluable insight into your customer’s needs and wants: the bedrock of your unique value proposition.

Program design

Designing a program that appeals to your target audience is imperative to the success of any event. SlatteryIT will work with you to design an event that specifically addresses the needs and interests of your target audience, and reflects your brand and broader objectives. We have a long history of experience managing every aspect of program development for IT and ICT events, including: titles, themes, session topics and structures, and key take-aways.

We can also facilitate a call for submissions from industry experts who want to share their insights with your audience. SlatteryIT will handle the entire submission process, liaising with a program committee, reviewers, and potential and confirmed speakers as required.

Speakers

In the same way that effective marketing depends on the quality of your content, an effective event rests on the quality of your speakers. SlatteryIT excels in recruiting compelling and memorable speakers.

Once secured, SlatteryIT oversees all aspects of speaker care to ensure that every presentation strikes the right balance of information and inspiration. We also manage all logistics, including travel and accommodation, and make sure that all biographical information, and speaker presentations and permissions, are acquired in a timely manner.

Stakeholders

Stakeholder care comes naturally to SlatteryIT. Our experience working with organisations of every size and orientation has honed our ability to manage and meet the specific needs of various stakeholders while keeping an eye on the bigger picture. We collaborate with our clients and their stakeholders to establish a detailed plan that clearly allocates deadlines and tasks, ensuring that everyone knows what is expected of them, and what they can expect.

SlatteryIT can represent your organisation with flair and confidence. You can focus on your product, while we handle all stakeholder enquiries and ensure any obstacles are overcome in a speedy and professional manner.

Sponsors + Exhibitors

SlatteryIT has an excellent track record securing sponsors and exhibitors for IT and ICT events. We work with you to create a market-specific value proposition for these potential partners, emphasising return on investment for them, and paving the way to an ongoing and fruitful relationship for you both.

Ultimately, a successful sponsorship strategy is indivisible from the event strategy. Any sponsor will measure the value of their support against the quality of the event and the opportunities it presents for their organisation and brand. SlatteryIT recognises that, like any relationship, sponsors require love and attention, but neither will substitute for an event that delivers on all that has been promised.

SlatteryIT can negotiate and manage all sponsorship agreements. As our experience suggests, we are used to dealing with a range of sponsors and ensuring that their particular needs are met. We will also handle all aspects of exhibitor management including contracting, producing and distributing the exhibitor manual, and acting as liaison to the exhibitors and their PR companies, and between the exhibitors and venue.

Attendees

SlatteryIT’s comprehensive marketing services will ensure your event is well attended, but that’s not the end of the story. We will ensure every element of the event is professionally presented and managed. This means guiding attendees through a seamless channel that flows through awareness, registration, event preparation, on the day experience, and post-event communication. This attention to detail will earn you vital advocates among your attendees.
