Give Your Event a Pulse
Social media for an event is often an afterthought and relies primarily on user-generated content.
But there is a better way to breathe life into your conference, convention, or festival.
Big Block Studios applies creative inbound marketing techniques to activate live events. We engage your audience before, during, and after the event with relevant visual and written content – much of it created in real time. By combining a cohesive communications team with in-demand knowledge, creative tactics, and best practices, we elevate awareness and create a traffic spike.
Big Block Studios recognizes that you have an internal marketing department, or existing relationships with agencies and vendors – and we aren’t here to replace them. Our team creates an agreeable environment where all parties can flourish. BBS event services serve a specific purpose for a brief moment in time. Once the vendors pack up and the tents come down, we can tip our cowboy hats and mosey off into the sunset. Or we can stick around and manage post-event activity.
Our “Pre-During-Post” methodology ensures a continuous connection with attendees.
