We are also actively participating and attending these events, so if you don’t want to go at it alone send us a message and let’s plan to meet up. Without further ado, here are the top 5 events you don’t want to miss out on this June!

AMA: Content & Connections
Cost: $35/Members $45/Non-Members
Time: 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Description: Today’s marketers are facing numerous challenges. One of the top questions that they’re asking themselves is how their products can evolve and stay relevant in today’s always-changing, ultra-competitive environment. An easy answer to this question is innovation. But, innovation is a complex topic. And it doesn’t apply to just the content you’re creating but also the ways in which you’re connecting with consumers. The strength of content lies in creating an emotional connection with your audience and where, when, and how you show up in culture allows you to create powerful connections with the right audience.
To help shed some light on how brands can immerse themselves into the game of innovation, the AMA Innovation Marketing Series is bringing together representatives of various corporate brands that are leading the way for “what’s next." Panel members include Chris Moloney, Chief Marketing Officer at TaxSlayer, John Webster, Product Marketing at The Weather Company, and Zoe Glade, Managing Director, Digital Marketing at American Cancer Society. The evening will be moderated by Peter Scott, Vice President of Emerging Media & Innovation at Turner Studios.
