II. TAKE A BREAK FROM ROI (11:00-12:00pm)
Sponsorship and event measurement has become an increasingly critical component within the business community. For several various reasons, and certainly including the current world financial climate, understanding and demonstrating effective marketing spending is a must for any brand. Sponsorium invites you to relax and take a break from ROI. In this session, Sponsorium will show you how to realize even better returns by measuring the intangibles within sponsorship and applying them to your own partnerships.
ING, a longtime Sponsorium client and very active worldwide sponsor, will share their insights as they have navigated the formerly un-measurable waters associated with their sponsorship marketing. Additionally, they will highlight how they have continued to succeed amidst shrinking budgets by ensuring their spending is 100% justified in every case, and streamlining the overall processes associated with sponsorship.
