The event, Engagement World 2016, is designed to help organizations in all areas of business profit from this emerging field that many experts believe will rival advertising in scale.
The Rewards & Recognition Expo at RandRexpo.com will be one of the anchor expositions at the event.
Engagement World will be held April 25-28 at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld. The event, which consuists of co-located education and exhibit programs addressing key areas of engagement, will also include:
  • The E2MA Red Diamond Conference, focusing on best practices in face-to-face marketing and communications (April 25-27)
  • Engagement University, highlighting key strategies and tactics related to ROI-based Enterprise Engagement plans (April 26-27)

Enterprise Engagement focuses on achieving organizational goals by fostering the proactive involvement of all of the people critical to success. This new field integrates branding, leadership, coaching, surveys & assessment; all forms of communications from digital to face-to-face, learning, innovation, rewards & recognition, analytics and other engagement tactics that are traditionally siloed in many organizations.

“The goal of this event is to help businesses of all kinds understand how they can achieve a competitive edge by engaging all of the people critical to success,” says Bruce Bolger, Managing Director of the Enterprise Engagement Alliance. “All of the research indicates that organizations will get the best results when they better integrate all of the levers of engagement, so the goal is to help equip management for this new approach to achieving organizational goals.”  

Nick Gazivoda, R&R Expo Show Director, notes that “Rewards and recognition are critical to the success of any engagement strategy. We’re pleased to be part of this exciting event that demonstrates the power of properly designed rewards & recognition programs and to share with our exhibitors the opportunity to reach a broader audience.”

Engagement World will bring together corporate practitioners, educators, solution providers, and associations in all areas of engagement, to help equip an entirely new generation of experts to help both organizations and solution providers in all areas of business profit from this new field.

“The growth of digital information and social media has only increased the need for face-to-face engagement,” says Jim Wurm, Executive Director of E2MA. “We believe that the emerging field of engagement creates perhaps the biggest growth opportunity for the meetings and events business since the advent of commercial jet aircraft. When companies need to engage people, it almost always boils down to face-to-face experiences.”

Registrants to the E2MA Red Diamond and Engagement University co-located education programs will be able to attend conference sessions at either conference, both of which will involve associations in key areas of engagement sharing best practices, as well as presentations and exhibits at the co-located Engagement Expo and the Rewards & Recognition Expo.
