Virtual Events as the New Normal: How to build a successful event and drive pipeline
Play • 43 min

Growth marketers, listen up! This one’s for you. In this episode, Mark Huber, Head of Brand & Product Marketing at Metadata, shares some secrets behind the planning, promotion and post-event follow-up for the inaugural (and VERY successful) virtual B2B marketing summit he helped build: DEMAND 2021.

With over 4,000 registrations and an agenda packed with some incredible thought-leader speakers, Mark believes transparency and building personal connections were part of what made this event so popular.

Sneak peek:

"How would you text a friend? It's not going to be grammatically incorrect, and it's not going to be perfect. It's going to be short, punchy, and conversational, and it's how we all talk in the real world. The real world and the B2B marketing world should be the same thing." - Mark Huber

Key discussions covered in this episode include:

  • Insight into some of the key things Metadata focused on when planning and promoting the virtual event
  • Driving registrations down the marketing funnel and how to convert them into pipeline
  • Why focusing on longer-term strategic projects is best in B2B marketing
  • How to repurpose event content to maximize its exposure to a wider audience
