Redefining the Business Lunch: JSA Adds Virtual ‘Meet and Eats’ Product to Growing Virtual Event Services Portfolio
JSA Events Department Delivers New Opportunity for Telecom, Data Center and Tech Leaders to Break Bread and Close Deals Virtually
MIDDLEBROOK, Va., March 6, 2020 — Jaymie Scotto & Associates (JSA), the preeminent provider of public relations, digital marketing and event planning services for the telecom, data center and tech industries, announces today that its JSA Events department will now offer a ‘Meet and Eats’ product for one-to-one and one-to-many virtual gatherings. To generate more attendee interest and engagement, leading up to and throughout the virtual meet-up, JSA Events, care of its partner EatNGage, will send lunch to the doors of each participant approximately one hour before the meeting time. The doorbell serves as a reminder to join the meeting, while the physical act of ‘breaking bread,’ a basic human practice associated with trust, sharing and bonding, sets the virtual meeting stage for an unprecedented level of attendance and engagement.
‘Meet and Eats’ is available as a stand-alone service or can be added to any of JSA’s existing turnkey virtual event management services, which include live-streaming virtual keynotes/roundtables/presentations, webinars, virtual press conferences, podcast broadcasts, post-trade show outreach, direct one-on-one prospect meetings and more. The JSA Events team is also available to quickly and seamlessly manage all the details of an event format change from in-person to digital, particularly in light of recent travel restrictions and the growing Coronavirus concerns.
JSA’s virtual ‘Meet and Eats’ product announcement comes immediately following the company’s highly successful January and February Virtual Roundtables. “Our recent results were extraordinary,” states Jaymie Scotto Cutaia, CEO of JSA. “We’ve been providing these monthly Virtual Roundtables for several years now, attracting on average 30 registrants per Roundtable in 2019. This new year however, by promoting that we will provide a free lunch on JSA for the first 100 registrants to our Roundtables, we attracted 197 registrants to our January event, and 137 registrants to our February event. Additionally we retained over 95% of our audience for both 45-minute virtual panel discussions. The over 500% increase in registrations, and a continual level of engagement level, coupled with the need now to travel less yet still network and share ideas across our business community, led us to immediately roll out this virtual event lunch incentive to our data center, tech and telecom clients for their virtual gatherings.”
So how does it work? The JSA Events team works with you to identify a targeted list of contacts to attend your web, audio or video conference. As part of JSA’s virtual event services, JSA can also provide access to its own Zoom or GoToWebinar platform if needed, and manage registration, invitation design and promotion, including social, email, text reminders and more. Once participants confirm, JSA will send them each a confirmation email with a link to choose their lunch from local restaurants, which are then delivered shortly before the meeting starts. If the attendee lives in a remote location, a restaurant gift card will be offered instead.
So if you’d like to send a pizza, sandwich or salad (your recipients’ choice!) to your prospect or client for your next virtual meet-up, or learn more about how JSA can support your virtual events, email JSA Events at [email protected].
