CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF THE ATTENDEE JOURNEY

While these individual solutions are not new to M&IW, the integration of these services creates an in-house agency focused on the total event experience. “We have always had an innovative mindset when it comes to designing, managing, and producing events. However, the changing landscape of the attendee journey requires a more thoughtful, strategic, and consultative approach,” said Tina Madden, Co-CEO. “By bringing our marketing, creative, design, and engagement experts together within Flow, we provide a more seamless and cohesive creative experience for our customers.” 


Flow is where creative solutions intersect with purposeful events to deliver exceptional experiences. 


Flow focuses on telling client stories and sharing brand experiences in a way that emotionally connects with audiences and drives engagement. Event marketing has taken center stage in shaping the attendee journey and delivering outcomes. “We help our clients navigate through the complexities from ideation to execution with impactful messaging and captivating visuals. We provide an end-to-end service where creative solutions intersect with purposeful events to deliver exceptional experiences,” said Marie Johnson, CMP, Director of Marketing & Strategy. 

DEVELOPING AN ATTENDEE ENGAGEMENT STRATEGY

M&IW has made strategic investments in talent to strengthen and expand its in-house capabilities as this area of its business continues to grow. “Organizations are turning to us more and more to help develop their attendee engagement strategy. Attendee engagement is all about incorporating experiences and elements that will surprise and delight attendees as well as deliver measurable outcomes for the organization,” said Tracy Norum, CMP, CIS, CITP, Sr. Director, Incentives & Recognition. “Through Flow, we combine our passion with our customer’s purpose to execute on their vision.”

For the past 50 years, M&IW has driven customer success through cutting-edge event management and technology solutions for live events. The acceleration of digital experiences created an opportunity to combine forces within creative services, marketing solutions, and engagement strategies to deliver sustainable, effective, and inspiring solutions at scale.
