Brooks created the conference in Portland, Maine to build an event for digital marketers and to get flyte’s name out there as an industry leader. Now in its sixth year, Brooks has learned a lot along the way about creating and hosting successful business events.
In this episode, he shares what he’s learned about events. We cover everything from why a business of any size and in any industry might want to start an event, to how to manage sponsorships, to how to create an event that people are excited to return to year after year.
Questions I ask Rich Brooks:
- Events are hard. Should all business owners be doing them?
- How do you create an event that really stands out?
- How do you get people to attend your event, and how do you get them to come back?
