getgeeked Events vs. The Competition

We created getgeeked because we felt events should do more to help brands meet the challenges they’re confronting today than outdated and overpriced press-only events. Before launching our first event, we spoke with dozens of companies and PR firms to better understand these challenges. What we learned was that press coverage is still the top priority, but converting influential geeks into powerful advocates, leveraging face-to-face engagement to generate word-of-mouth buzz and user-generated content, and receiving owned content to share the experience beyond the show floor were becoming more and more important.  To see how our events are events help brands address these challenges in ways traditional tech industry media events don’t check out the chart below.
