Activation and Event Management

Activation and Event Management
It is a complete package on what you need to do as an Event/Activation/BTL Manager.

Did you know that more marketing budget is being spent behind events and activation, rather than going for the traditional ATL (Above the Line) marketing of TVs and Radios? Events and Activation are part of BTL (Below the Line) direct marketing, where you can target specific sets of consumers according to your product’s needs, design specific campaigns for them which would solve the need of the consumers, and communicate with them directly on an one-to-one basis. Several advertising and event management firms are here in Bangladesh, which provide fantastic career opportunities for fresh graduates, and also for people who want to switch career tracks.
