Attendees are the lifeblood of any live experience. But how can you attract the right attendees and grow your audience at the right pace? Smart growth combines insightful audience segmentation with powerful digital marketing and attendee acquisition strategies through tactics like dynamic websites, email marketing, social media, digital advertising, audience retargeting, chatbots, and custom applications.
Smart Growth in Action:

- It’s early in this trend’s life cycle, but opportunities await. Work with a Freeman strategist to help you apply this idea at your next event.
- To reach very specific audience targets and provide a more tailored event experience, the American Optometric Association (AOA) overhauled its integrated marketing and outreach plan, which drove significant increases in attendance and member engagement.
