Is it the glorious beaches and fantastic weather? Is it the pristine transport infrastructure? Is it the reputation for quality and excellence? All of these are certainly important, but I would say that above all the desire to host events is the most important factor, especially when it manifests itself in the desire and willingness to learn from more established destinations and recognised experts on industry best practices.

Marketers Optimistic About Finding Social Media ROI [STUDY] Marketers are hopeful that this will be the year that they finally link social media marketing to ROI, a new survey says.

According to the report from Bazaarvoice, 74% of CMOs predict they will finally tie social efforts to hard ROI this year. The survey polled 175 CMOs from The CMO Club, including those from B2C and B2B companies in various industries. In 2009, 84% of companies did not measure social media ROI — in 2011, that's not an option. Business decisions are best made when they are based on hard numbers that measure success, and social media efforts are no longer an exception. For the past few years, marketers have been content to measure "soft" metrics, such as the number of "Likes" or followers their brands have acquired. While those soft metrics still rank highly in importance, marketers are now turning to more traditional metrics that showcase true value.
