Marketers need to be satisfied with their event management technology because research shows live events get the job done for B2B companies. Most B2B marketers (69 percent) in the U.S. use face-to-face events as a marketing tactic to acquire new customers1. What’s more, events share the spotlight with email as the most effective marketing tactic, named by 75 percent of U.S. professional association employees2.
In the G2 Crowd Winter 2018 report, etouches earned the coveted “Leader” designation based on users’ praise for the platform as a comprehensive, end-to-end event management solution. Users also gave high marks to etouches tools to enhance attendee engagement and satisfaction, while delivering a proven return on investment. Other factors in the solution’s favorable reviews were: ease of use, customer support, frequent enhancements, special features for customization and reporting, and ease of integration with customers’ sales and marketing platforms.
