XING Events for lead generation of high-quality business professionals

Initial situation

Each year, the Academy provides 400 seminars and qualification programmes for companies across all industries. It was looking for a marketing channel that would highlight the high quality of its seminars and communicate this to a relevant target audience of business professionals. In order to ensure a smooth booking process for customers, the ticketing system needed to be displayed within the marketing section. In addition, the integrated ticket shop had to be both easy to use and adaptable to individual requirements.

Our Solution

XING Event Market provides the Academy with an optimal marketing section for initial acquisition of business professionals. The various marketing tools allow organisers to reach a large number of new contacts who can later be acquired directly. In combination with XING TicketingManager, a simple ticket shop can be integrated into the event's website.
