It takes a minute. Maybe less.

Listing your event details couldn't be easier with EventsCanada's award-winning interface. A title, venue and start date is all you need.

Our cloud-based event & business marketing platform means you don't need any specialised software or technical knowledge to market your event on EventsCanada.

Add multiple dates, images and links to your social, website, etc.

Adding a feature image to make your listing stand out is as easy as drag-and-drop. Include links to your own event website, Facebook page or Twitter account.

You can even add as many dates and session times as you like, ensuring your audience knows exactly when your business operates or when your event is taking place.

Our editorial process makes EventsCanada unique.

One of the reasons EventsCanada is so popular with consumers is because we moderate event submissions.

We don't publish online webinars or retail sales, only live events at a publicly accessible venue with a clear start date and time.

A basic event listing is free for everyone. But to turbo-charge your audience reach we have a number of advertising, promotional keys, marketing packages and much more for a range of budgets.

Profit

Your event can even help to increase traffic to your site and boost your brand’s search engine rankings. One way to do this is to use an interactive & integrated event listing. By using SEO optimized images, RSVP information, social media connections, and metadata, you are effectively offering search engines a rich list of quality information to index.

As a bonus, if your event calendar integrates with your marketing & networking platforms, it can also be used to gather customer information, improve your segmentation, and learn more about how your customers interact with your event listing.

Another advantage of event marketing is how it can drive social media engagement. Become the brand that everyone is talking about by building up excitement on your social channels pre-event, posting stats, quotes, and even live streaming during the event, and sharing highlights after it occurs.

  • Offer discounts, prizes, or other perks to social followers to claim in the lead-up to your event.
  • Encourage attendees to sign up for your business’s social sites by running a contest on one of your social platforms, such as the attendee that shares the best picture, or finds the answer to a riddle (something that can be only solved at the event) first.
  • Let people know with fliers or announcements that post-event news, photos, and insights will be shared directly on social media.
  • Project your brand’s live Twitter feed at the event to motivate more social posts.

Encouraging more social engagement will help to build your brand’s community. The people who attend your events are likely to be your long-term customers, as well as your brand advocates. Get them connected with your business on social media so they can conveniently share your riveting blog posts and inspirational podcasts and vlogs in the future.

Speaking of inbound marketing, you can repurpose your event content into months worth of high-quality content. Fill up your blog schedule with value-driven posts related to the event. Conduct interviews with speakers and share on your social media channels. Post pictures, videos, and standout quotes.

You can also create an event survey to gather data for an original report covering current insights in your industry. Especially if you have a large attendee list, this can be an excellent way to collect valuable market information, which you can then repurpose into a white paper to share with your existing customers or to offer on your website to attract leads.

Event marketing works. As those winning event metrics keep coming in, brands are going to continue offering more in-person experiences for their customers. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts the event industry to grow by 44 percent from 2010 to 2020!

While the ROI for events varies – big budget brands claim they see a return that exceeds 5 times their investment for live events, while about half of brands across the board put their return between 3 and 5 times what they invested – the majority of companies who use events believe the impact in terms of lead generation, sales, and customer loyalty is worth it.

Consumers are gravitating towards more meaningful brands. The ones that offer real value. That can improve their lives. And that can step through the wall that traditionally stands between consumers and business to offer something human.

The knowledge gained from face-to-face interactions with customers is critical for creating – and leveraging – accurate buyer personas. For B2B brands, in particular, customer interaction may be limited to emails, brief online chats, and an occasional phone call.

With real-time, human engagement, the quality of the feedback and insight you’ll receive will be tremendously valuable for enriching your buyer personas and improving the experience and products you offer your customers. You may discover a problem with your product or services that is the root of unexplained customer churn. On the other hand, you could uncover strengths you didn’t realize you had, which your brand can now better capitalize on.

  • Talk with clients or interested prospects at a conference over coffee.
  • Take notes during the interactive Q&A session.
  • Encourage attendees to reach out to you or your team directly with questions or concerns.
  • Use a branded mobile event app to encourage interaction with your attendees, to launch discussions, and to send out survey requests.
