Video has become an essential part of how those in the healthcare convention marketing, exhibits, meetings and events industry teach, train, market and communicate. It’s easy to see why. In a field that rivals any for jargon, healthcare must also contend with a subject matter that is quite literally hidden away inside.

In even the best of circumstances, it’s possible for medical professionals to misunderstand text-based documentation and best practices — those difficulties only increase as physicians, assistants, administrative staff and others are pressed to share more knowledge more quickly — and do so potentially with audiences that may not share their first language.

In such a world, video has been met with a welcome relief — a simple tool that can quickly show more detail than could ever be described in text, and that can be shared and reviewed easily anytime and anywhere it’s needed.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to use video effectively to promote your event, before, during and after
  • Improve education and on-demand learning opportunities
  • Create opportunities for educational library resource
