  • Community Engagement For The "Trip Advisor" of the Event Industry

    January 8, 2015 : Research at the Qualmann Institute indicates that while only 14% of consumers believe 'traditional advertising', 78% trust peer review. The world of social media has changed word of mouth marketing exponentially, offering reviewers on sites like Trip Advisor, Yelp and Amazon the chance to share their views with the world. Literally.

    Bringing this concept to the events industry is Eventopedia, the brainchild of event industry heavyweights Toby Heelis and Alan Newton.

    The site, launched in April 2014, offers professional meeting planners and event managers a single location to find the most suitable suppliers quickly and efficiently. 

    Like Trip Advisor, visitors to the site are able to rate and review suppliers, offering peer insight into an industry that has traditionally been built on word or mouth marketing.

    Eventopedia is first focusing on the UK market, but will quickly be online with New York City venues in early 2015.

    Visitors to Eventopedia's Community page will discover our embedded social wall, revealing industry Twitter conversation in real-time. Initially displaying Tweets that include the popular #EventProfs, any number of industry-relevant hashtags may be added at any time.

    In reference to the partnership, Toby said,

    "What we love most about the TweetWall Pro solution is that it provides us with a platform for real-time engagement inside of an event community that demands real-time information. Visitors to the site will not only be able to research every aspect of the event planning process, but view and join today's event industry conversation."

    Toby continued,

    "The opportunity for us, in the future, to drive that conversation is limitless."

    "The site is the perfect location to promote hashtags to the industry helping steer interaction across a number of topics. #SummerVenues or #eventtechthatworks, for example, lets us steer the conversation in the direction of a topic that is either already trending, or that we can pick up on as hot topics from visitors to the site."

    By welcoming visitors to a networking community on your website in this way, you give your target audience a reason to repeatedly return and spend time watching the conversation unfold on your TweetWall. This in turn adds a perceived added value to your products or services, establishes you as an authority in your industry, and builds trust in your brand - not to mention the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) benefits of returning visitors and time spent on your site.

    Web embedding is an easy, seamless and cost-effective way to increase and manage engagement.
