[Infographic] How to Make Your Event Successful

Brandon Rafalson

What do the most successful event strategies share in common? How can event marketers make their events just as successful? 

These are the questions we set out to answer in the Event Success Formula report. Now, you can see the key findings from this report for yourself in an easily digestible infographic.

The Event Success Formula is based on survey responses from over 400 mid- to senior-level event marketers. After running our initial analysis of the findings, which resulted in the Event Marketing 2018: Benchmarks and Trends report, we then analyzed the findings to see what the most successful organizations share in common.

The result is a report filled with data-backed insights into how the most successful organizations plan events and how other event marketers can make their events successful.
