Reno, NV (January 17, 2022) – Native-owned gaming and hospitality firm Raving is conducting their twenty-fourth industry-lauded virtual Raving NEXT: Indian Gaming Analytics and Marketing Conference, February 8-10, 2022. There’s still time to register. Connect with leading operators and experts; share insights and get the tools, motivation and data needed for a successful 2022.
Originally planned as a hybrid event (live and virtual), organizers pivoted to an all virtual event due to the ongoing Covid crisis. This event focuses on deep dive analytics and marketing, providing cutting-edge tools and recent data that impacts leadership, player development, research and advertising. Attendees are also eligible for University of Phoenix credits.
“Our conference is loaded with the right topics, backed up by recent data and case studies; plus we offer on-going education through four master classes after the event. I can’t tell you how critical it is that general managers and marketing directors, and all those who are invested in marketing, leadership and analytics, attend. We know the unique challenges marketing teams are facing now and it’s time to make bold changes to not lose market share,” said Raving CEO, Deana Scott.
Raving wins award for conference engagement – check out the numbers
Raving is known for their hands-on, technology-driven and interactive experiences at their live conferences. There’s NOTHING else like it in the industry. According to Scott, “Last year, when we were challenged to produce our first virtual conference, many operators were already facing burn-out on virtual meetings. My team knew they had to raise the bar and give our attendees an experience that hadn’t been met so far.
“And they did! What was so surprising was that over 90% of attendees stayed live with us all three days – and did they engage with the presenters! Hundreds of questions asked through live discussion and chat. They also downloaded the conference app so they could introduce themselves to each other share insights.
“As a matter of fact, 913 messages were sent through our interactive community board! Our sponsors engaged with attendees by hosting ‘meet ups’ and doing live demos through their virtual booths and gave away prizes at sessions and networking parties. We were recognized by the platform manufacturer as one of the highest-rated virtual events of 2021!
The best way to educate and motivate
“Let’s face it, live events and virtual events appeal to different personalities. Virtual eliminates time and distance restrictions. Yet our live events are something that are talked about for months. Although we will be all virtual in February, the plan is to offer they hybrid model for all future conferences. That way we service the needs of all casinos and attendees. Virtual has its benefits – when budgets are limited or there are travel restrictions – an entire team can still participate in learning and interaction. And our quality of presenters and our timely topics, are bar none! We’re offering very affordable registration rates, plus a two for one offer, so casino marketing teams can truly start the year motivated and with the tools they need to move forward in 2022.”
