You now are dealing with more streams of data about your event than ever before - registration, leads, RFID (for some), surveys (pre, during, post and on the web and through smart phones), your mobile app, web site analytics, and don’t forget about social media usage. Tied to event data may be other data streams in your organization such as customer engagement activities beyond the event lifecycle, other customer product purchases (e.g. participation in other shows or live events, online webinars/learning, publications, etc.) and other transactional information. Can all this be considered “Big Data?” Learn about the insights each data source can provide and the challenges inherent in each. Also, come ready to share your stories of the challenges and successes you are having in understanding your data.
Jeffrey and Nancy will provide a practical overview of what Big Data is, the positioning of Big Data and analytics in the exhibition industry and which areas offer your organization the best opportunities to seize the power of data analytics.
Stephanie will provide a data analytics practitioner’s perspective, sharing how her company uses analytics and where it is found to be most effective.
Jeffrey will offer his practical insights from working with some of the largest exhibitions in the country. Session attendees will be the first to learn from Nancy results and insights from a new CEIR study, “Use of Data Analytics, for Big Data or Otherwise” which will assess the extent of awareness and use of various data analytics among exhibition organizers.
