"Participants will discover
the secrets of successful
event promotion."

Over the last decade, DEC Marketing has pioneered effective techniques in the promotion of successful conferences, seminars, exhibitions, forums and other business events. Now, through our training programmes, we can share these insights and expertise with your events team.

We have produced dozens of bite sized, self-select modules which can be packaged together to offer either one, two or three-day training programmes.  Each module draws on best practice case study examples and our practical knowledge of what works best in certain event marketing situations.

You’ll learn how to increase registrations, lower costs, work smarter and boost event profitability.

Training days are delivered at your organisation’s offices (or location of your choosing) and can accommodate up to 10 people. These smaller groups ensure that we keep sessions highly participative and engaging.
