    • Obtain event measurement requirements from marketers.
    • Communicate event measurement requirements to event set-up and measurement resources.
  • Drive on-going improvements in efficiency of event execution/set-up:
    • Help to evaluate and implement recommendations provided by marketing teams.

    • Share case studies with the community to improve results, foster collaboration and avoid issues.
