The RSVP Agency at Markex 2013

Markex World of Events is the definitive marketing, promotions, and special events trade exhibition, and this year’s event promises to be the biggest three days in marketing in 2013. Attracting 10,000 visitors from all sectors of business, including marketing, creative agencies, advertising, PR professionals, event organisers, and resellers, Markex is a great opportunity to get your product out there.

The vast majority of attendees are in a position to either make or influence purchasing decisions, and Markex provides a platform for innovative thinking, inspiration and ideas, and of course, excellent opportunities for doing business, networking, and building relationships.

For this year’s exhibition, Markex have added cutting-edge marketing developments – boosting innovation, visitor and customer interest, and attendance rates. They’ve added a ‘Digital Village’ – where The RSVP Agency will be have its stand. The Digital Village is specialised: approximately 30 exhibitors, in all fields of Online and Digital Marketing solutions, are expected to campaign their products and services.

A new solution

The RSVP Agency provides the most affordable and comprehensive online RSVP management software and service offering available in the market today. We have designed an online system to manage the entire RSVP process. We will be showcasing our products and services to the events industry for the first time – and are expecting a very good response.

The strong shift towards Digital Integration for events means that The RSVP agency is at the forefront of this innovation. It’s a chance for us to show event professionals the value that they can receive with our products and services. We’re very excited to be a part of Markex for the first time, to be leading the way in digital integration through the Digital Village at Markex, and to showcase our product and network with like-minded individuals. Taking the corporate and eventing world by storm, we’re hoping to sign up event ‘resellers’ and make contact with new clients.

Understanding events and event requirements

The RSVP Agency is owned by Terry Sutherland and Sue Aerts, who between them have 30+ year’s event experience.

Terry Sutherland, CEO: “It was apparent to us that guest management and the RSVP process could either make or break an event. We contracted many agencies over the years to manage our RSVP, but were never satisfied with the level of service we received, or the limited features that the various software systems had to offer. Because of our vast experience in managing events, conferences, gala dinners, exhibitions, high level VIP guest management and roadshows, we decided to develop our own unique software system. Online Invitation Management is as much about building your brand as ATL advertising, and clients are beginning to realise this. It is how we speak to our clients that makes all the difference. Having 25 years of eventing experience helps us to understand exactly what it is that makes for a professional RSVP experience. Writing and owning our own software, allows us to constantly update our offering. We keep our clients up to date with what they want.”
