Center Presents: Designers Who Lunch with John Kreicbergs

11:30 AM
HOK | 300 W 22nd Street Kansas City, MO 64108 Map

Festivals and events have become a boon for brands. Yet activation and fostering meaningful advertiser/attendee engagement remains a challenge. While Nielsen reports that 76 percent of festival goers feel more favorable towards brands that sponsor a tour or concert, on-the-ground experience has shown that integration into the very fabric of the event itself is key.

Join John Kreicbergs, the marketing co-chair for Kansas City’s award-winning Boulevardia festival, general manager for Propaganda3 and one of the co-founders of the event-based technology platform AppTapp, as he highlights the backstory behind Boulevardia, from brand building to site planning to attendee engagement and more. This interactive lunch will outline the key components of event-based marketing, how principles of game design and player engagement can be applied to attendee activation, and how sponsors, events, and attendees can mutually benefit.
