  • Provide exhibitors with the data they need to create success through digital events
  • Facilitate productive collaboration and empower all parties to make smart decisions within the digital events environment by setting a reporting standard that is understandable for all stakeholders
  • Provide comparability across events

Learning Objectives:

  • With RSDE, event organizers, exhibitors, digital event platforms and data analysts now have the tools to bring more trust and transparency into the digital event marketplace
  • RSDE creates confidence in and a full understanding of a digital event’s audience
  • Gain assurance of how digital vendor are handling the data and, importantly, who owns it
