Atlanta is an amazing city for marketing professionals. Here at Marsden Marketing, we value continuing to learn and grow as professionals, which is why you’ll find us participating in HUGATL events through HubSpot and networking events with our peers. But we often find ourselves asking, “What other marketing events and networking opportunities does Atlanta offer?”
(P.S. If you're looking for the most recent round-up of Atlanta events, we post these blogs monthly. Click here to see what's happening this month.)
If you’ve wondered the same, we did the hard work for you! Here are the June 2017 events we found for $50 or less for digital, inbound and content marketing professionals. Who knows – you might even see us there!
