According to Richard Miranda, Marketing Head at DigitalMums,

Engagement is not a hack. You need to put a lot of time and make your audience feel valued. An audience that likes what you do is more likely to talk about you and recommend to others. That means learning how to engage people should be high on organizer’s list.

Make sure you remember his words and give your audience an experience and not just an event!
