The Webit Congress 2011, one of Europe’s premier digital marketing and IT industry events focusing on Central and Eastern Europe, is on in Sofia from 26-27 October. Top world class speakers, seven parallel conference tracks, the trade show exhibition, networking opportunities, the Webit Awards ceremony, and a complete program of social events make this the one IT conference you must attend.
This year the organizers expect over 5000 visitors from over 40 countries, more than any other business to business event in the region. Webit is the place to be if you want to grow your business, showcase your products and services, network with other great minds, or be inspired by senior industry leaders.
With this type of event expecting to receive thousands of visitors from around the world, it would be a good idea for the hosts to continually promote this type of occasion throughout the two days. For example, looking into how custom labeled water bottles, from places like Custom Water, (https://customwater.com/) can help to expand the reach of your event, could help the organization to receive more visitors in the following years. This could be beneficial for all parties involved.
Tempted to attend as an exhibitor? If so, be sure to bring along a variety of promotional materials. Brochures, flyers, and postcards are all excellent ways to ensure that you can get your company name out there by providing further information about your products and services as well as your contact information. For more information about designing and printing your own promotional materials, including a useful postcard template, head to the MyCreativeShop website.
