Sponsoring HR events is a key component of a sound marketing strategy. But sponsoring large, traditional events simply isn’t possible for many companies. See why “unconferences” are actually a better way to reach your target buyers and build your brand.
Thinking of Sponsoring an HR Event? “Unconferences” Deliver the Biggest Bang for Your Buck
According to the American Marketing Association, event sponsorship is today’s fastest growing marketing medium. What’s behind the boom in event sponsorship? Key factors include the rising costs of traditional advertising, the ongoing fragmentation of media, and shifts in the world’s economies and demographic.
