2024 Creators and Influencers to Have at Your Event
Our culture influences everything, especially what to do and where to go on a daily basis. Event influencers are using platforms like TikTok, Youtube, and even LinkedIn to post about cookouts, brunches, and kickbacks — they’re hosting and recapping curated spaces at conferences, wellness retreats, and nightlife parties. That’s why hiring an event influencer for your event should be high on the list when marketing takes off.
This article shares a list of the top influencers to consider when you are planning your 2024 event marketing strategies. Some are party-starters, others are historians, international jet-setters and trendsetters in their fields.
If you see one perfect for your next event, make sure you follow them on social media then send that DM or email to get the conversation started.
Why You Should Hire Influencers to Attend Your Event
Creators are tapped into culture and community in ways that event organizers and party promoters may not always know. Here are three key reasons why an event organizer should consider engaging an influencer to host, attend, then recap their event:
- Tuned into Event Tone: Creators understand how to capture the tone, essence, and vibe of an event and its target audience seamlessly.
- Tapped in with Event Themes: Niche influencers will often bring a heightened awareness of current trends and cultural themes specific to their field, providing an authentic and resonant connection with the targeted audience.
- Audience Engagement: Creators with a strong and dedicated following will extend marketing beyond the event’s duration, tapping new followers and supporters to your event page.
In this ever-changing landscape of event hosting and attendance, strategically hiring an influencer or creator brings numerous advantages to selling tickets and hopefully selling out.
