Sparkloft Media of Portland, Oregon launched Eleventes, a suite of social media services that enhances meetings and events of all kinds. Sparkloft will use Eleventes to boost attendance, engage guests, maximize membership and enhance sponsorships in numerous ways.
 
“Event planners are tasked with integrating social media into all aspects of their programs. With the online landscape in constant flux, it can be difficult to stay up-to-date and leverage tools effectively,” said Sparkloft Media president and CEO Martin Stoll. “Eleventes is a turnkey solution that can be tailored to the specific needs of our clients, helping them to promote, engage and track event participation.”
 
To boost attendence, the Eleventes software will develop a comprehensive content plan with multimedia assets, leverage social media to encourage attendees to share their plans, and use hyper-targeted social advertising to reach new attendees.
 
Eleventes motivates clients to create memorable events and foster meaningful connections by increasing sponsorship relevance through social media, reaching audiences outside the event and integrating photos and videos from attendees into the event experience.

The average event-goer spends long days sitting in meetings or professional development sessions, followed by an hour or two of standing and sipping cocktails. But holding your next big event at a spa resort opens a realm of possibilities for wellness breaks. Moving the action from the boardroom to the steam room can improve morale by combining business with pleasure—while also boosting attendees’ health. 

 

 Seattle is young and ever evolving, a dynamic city where newness is an integral part of the culture. And it has a long, proud history of hospitality.

In the early 1850s, Chief Seattle welcomed strangers to the banks of Puget Sound. Because of his kindness, they named their new settlement on Elliott Bay after him. “Seattle is a new city with an ancient culture,” notes Ken Workman, Chief Seattle’s great, great, great, great grandson. “It’s less than two grandmas old, as we like to say.” 

 

Many see Portland as a progressive city. No event venues are likely more in line with that world view than the two run by Ecotrust Events. Ecotrust, the events branch’s overarching nonprofit, leads a staggering number of social equity, economic opportunity, and environmental programs, from supporting Native American land rights to building intergenerational wealth for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) individuals. What does this have to do with hosting a corporate meeting? Everything.
