Face-to-face communication with potential customers is the most powerful communication channel that humans have. Shaking a person’s hand creates a bond that can’t be matched by an email or other forms of marketing. That’s why Dispatch Media Group produces 22 local consumer shows and B2B events – to put you in front of your exact target market, right when they are getting ready to buy and are most receptive to your message. Find out more about our face-to-face channels, and how we can create an activation that will exceed your ROI expectations. Just fill out the form.
