Event planning can be stressful. Coordinating vendors, organizing activities and pulling together promotional materials, all while maintaining a modest budget can be a tricky balancing act. The Greenbrier County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) is offering Event Marketing on a Shoestring Budget, as the kick-off event to the 2019 Partner Education Workshop Series. The free, 90-minute session starts at 9 a.m., on May 15, in the Rahall Room of the Greenbrier Valley Visitors Center.
Learn about low-cost tech tools along with word of mouth strategies to get people talking and boost event attendance. Tim Brady, vice president of sales and marketing at the Charleston CVB, draws from his years of experience in tourism to provide attendees with tips and ideas that have proven to be successful.
Through the Partner Education Series, the CVB provides free workshops that allow tourism partners to learn marketing best practices and easy-to-implement techniques while staying up-to-date on the latest trends. Event Marketing on a Shoestring Budget is the first of four sessions offered. To attend, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 304-645-1000.
