The Art of Corporate Branding

Corporate events are big business. Event industry statistics point to the fact that events are an incredibly effective marketing tool – but only if they’re pulled off in a manner that’s slick and professional.  As both the number and caliber of events increases, so too does the pressure on corporate event planners to successfully deliver events that result in brand awareness and more importantly, ROI.

Join us on Thursday, July 9th at Legendary Events as Sophia Lin Kanno shares secrets for the mindset behind branding at corporate events. We’ll learn about the questions to ask when approaching corporate events and the strategies that are used for execution. We will also have additional insight from Legendary Events’ very own Communications and Brand Manager, Emmy Perry
