Through an extensive marketing campaign, we take a multi-channel approach to ensure the campaign has wide coverage and strong response rates, attracting a high-quality audience who are serious about making a purchase. Below is an overview of the variety of activity our in-house marketing team execute to attract the right audience for your organisation.


Direct mail and emails

Emails are highly-targeted using a variety of methods, including personalisation along with constant use of A/B testing to ensure we gain the strongest response rates and ensure awareness of the event. Direct mail is utilised in a similar fashion, employing personalisation. Our direct mail and email campaign further benefits from a unique database of over 140,000 CIPD members you won't target at any other event.

Social media

We promote the show through all the main social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and more.

Feeds are regularly monitored and plenty of messages are retweeted and shared from exhibitors.

We also encourage a social buzz online in our exclusive CIPD community forum, along with relevant discussions via LinkedIn. This is further supported by various blogs created in the build up to the show.
