Ismail Sirdah, owner of Lulu Promotions and Music, is a seasoned event planner based in Duluth, Georgia. Because event promotion and planning can be complex, Ismail often finds that the best solutions come from other sources. For example, many event professionals share their industry expertise on leading event planning blogs. Here are Mr. Sirdah’s top seven picks for the best event promotion blogs.
DULUTH, Ga., March 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ —
Gallus Events is an event consultancy firm specializing in helping event promoters support in-person and virtual events. The website offers a variety of services, but the industry knowledge on their blog is, of course, free.
Blogs offer event management tool reviews, free guides/templates, guest speaker management tips, and more. For those who prefer audio or video to written content, Gallus Events organizes webinars and their own Youtube channel.
Eventbrite is an online event management platform that helps promoters plan, market and manage their events. As one of the leading event SaaS providers in the hospitality industry, The Eventbrite Blog is one of the best out there.
The website produces new blogs every week and keeps up to date with the latest trends, such as event planning technology and COVID-19 social distancing tips. As Gallus notes Ismail SirdahEventbrite also offers free audio and video resources to event promoters.
Event planning plan
Event Planning Blueprint is an online training destination for many aspiring event planners and promoters. Course offer certificates of completion but come at a cost.
The Event Planning Plan Blog, however, is completely free and full of value for new and experienced event managers. Blog titles contain social media tips, environmental sustainability insights, event client management, and more.
Hubb is a popular software solution for event planners. As such, the website also hosts a first class blog covering a multitude of topics related to event management. Readers can also benefit from event case studies and e-guides.
And because Hubb is an event engagement platform, its blog content offers great insight into how to increase attendance at events, whether in-person or virtual, says Ismail Sirdah.
Bizzabo is a competitor of Hubb which also delivers an amazing blog to help event promoters. One of the ways its content is unique is that it provides great tips for securing sponsorships – a task that remains one of the most stressful tasks for event planners.
Bizzabo also maintains a free podcast where hosts interview industry experts.
Hubspot isn’t strictly an event promotion brand, but its forte is social media and content marketing. A promoter’s social media skills can make or break a marketing event. As such, Hubspot’s Blog is a gold mine for event planners.
Social media platforms are growing rapidly and Hubspot’s editorial team is one of the best at keeping up with these trends. Hubspot Academy is also completely free and allows event organizers to obtain professional certificates in social media marketing and management.
Ismail Sirdah on social tables
Social tables is another event management software platform and its blog content offers many of the same ideas that will be found on Bizzabo and Hubb. Due to the brand’s status in hospitality and event planning, the Social Tables blog is a must read.
Contributors address specific event issues (for example, recent titles cover wedding planning and event budgeting), as well as how to host successful events during COVID-19 restrictions, says Ismail Sirdah. Other common topics are catering, outdoor events and venue management.
