Promote Your Event on Pinterest

Pinterest is a great way to build excitement and hype around your event. Build Pinterest boards around the following:

  1. Speaker Board. This pinboard includes biographical information, blogs your event speakers have written and news articles they’ve been featured in.
  2. Event Destination Board. Include attractions, hotels, restaurants, after-hours group activities and team-building activities.
  3. Previous Event Board. Create a pinboard to showcase your previous event or meeting.

Sell & Showcase Your Brand on Your Board

Showcase your brand or organization via one of your boards. This includes pinning blogs by your organization, as well as other blogs and articles written about your brand. This is also a great place to pin philanthropic contributions to show your civic involvement. The Gulf Shores and Orange Beach meeting team even offers customized digital banner graphics and save-the-dates to make promoting your event easy. 

Add your Pinterest handle to your marketing materials, including email newsletters and registration confirmations, to generate excitement among attendees for your next event.
