Experiential Marketing Committee, Southeast Chapter

Overview & Description
Experiential Marketing includes events and sponsorships, but it also understands an experience can be more personal. Its importance lies in its ability to create a relevant bond with the consumer.  Today, Experiential Marketing includes events and more individual experiences, such as a demonstration of product’s performance, extra care/personal connection, and grassroots/affinity events. The key is creating an experience that stimulates an emotional connection and reinforces the essence of the brand. Experiential Marketing may also have an entertainment, cause, or celebrity aspect to it.

Committee Purpose
The Experiential Marketing Committee is for members who are responsible for their organizations' experiential marketing initiatives. Experiential marketing are becoming increasingly important components of the marketing communications mix, and growth has recently outpaced traditional advertising and promotion. This committee will provide a forum for members to share case studies, best practices, and network to ultimately elevate each other’s' expertise and make their organizations more effective.
