Our conference program is refreshingly different to what you're used to seeing at regular tradeshows and conferences. Why?
  • Built Around Your Needs: We create the conference program based on research and feedback from our clients, senior marketing professionals, who like you are dealing with critical issues on a daily basis
  • First class speakers: Conference sessions are led by peers or industry experts, who have a clear understanding of the business obstacles inherent in controlling large marketing departments and how they can be managed and resolved.
  • Intimate sessions: Sessions are for small groups of under 25 executives and are for marketing professionals only. This environment encourages attendees to be able to share best practices, successful case studies, and receive opinions and suggestions from their colleagues.

If you would like to participate in the program, or recommend any speakers or topics, please email Chyai Mulberg or call her at 212-651-8736.
