Google Tag Manager

Blackthorn Events supports Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager. Google Analytics can provide a lot of the important insights you’re looking for, but when used alone, it does have limitations. By using Google Tag Manager in conjunction with Google Analytics, you’re able to collect much more data on attendees.

By clicking here you can see a full list of tags that are supported. We support everything within the 'Web' column.
