Marketing events have always been important in business. Trade shows, for example, give companies the chance to educate the public about their products and connect with potential customers. But, as Erin Gargan King points out, today’s consumers can get most of their education online. After all, companies should already have that information on their website.

They still give us the opportunity to meet our future clients face-to-face. When they go well, they allow us to form real human relationships with our online audiences.
