The MARCOM forum understands the daily reality in your world of marketing; where the focus is more about how to make large-scale changes with limited resources than conceiving of multi-million dollar campaigns. MARCOM takes a look at the trends and topics that matter most to public sector and not-for-profit marketers and communicators. It’s a chance to enhance your strategic approach, mingle with like-minded people and pick up practical tools and tips you can put to use now.
The theme “Transformations in Marketing” will explore how to socialize in the most authentic ways, mobilize through persuasive marketing, communications and current technologies to revolutionize our approach and achieve measurable results.
The MARCOM program offer inspiring Keynotes and plenary sessions, 15 concurrent sessions, Peer2Peer Roundtables and a Networking Reception. A total of 4 pre-forum Workshops are offered, and as always, there’s an Exhibit Showcase of marketing vendors who can elaborate on how their solutions can help you in your initiatives. NEW this year will be a rapid-fire solutions session delivered by 12 qualifying marketing solutions providers followed by a trade show visit to learn more.
