event planners responded to the global survey
in-depth interviews with subject-matter experts
a range of content outputs designed in the client's branding
The research programme informed a comprehensive content plan, centered around a flagship key findings report. The bundle of content is completed by a detailed infographic, a collection of smaller micrographics for social media, and a series of video Q&As with event industry experts. The client has benefitted through a wide impact on social media, building on the buzz created around the launch event at IMEX.
This broad mix of mediums helps ensure the campaign is visual, appealing and conveys the desired message effectively. The campaign is a flagship example of how thought leadership can aid the launch – or relaunch – of a brand through an effective B2B content strategy.
To aid amplification, Radisson Meetings and Longitude developed content for a custom BrandSuite on the Financial Times’ website – accessing an engaged, senior business audience. The content hub itself hosted all the content produced by Longitude, the FT and Radisson Hotel Group, and continues to perform highly.
The BrandSuite hub is advertised across FT.com, using advanced audience segmentation to effectively hit the client’s target readership, delivering great ROI based on lead generation and brand awareness.
