Millennials are the largest living generation and the most coveted consumer group since the Baby Boom. Millennials are early adopters of technology and heavy users of online, social, and mobile media. Millennials also tend to have shorter attention spans and are in control of the content and marketing messages they receive. Hosted by the National Education Association, this complimentary ANA members only conference will feature sessions from leading marketers and thought leaders who will share best practices and insights on reaching the elusive Millennials audience.

CONNECTING THE MILLENNIAL GENERATION TO NEIGHBORHOODS THROUGH AN INTEGRATED MULTI-MEDIA APPROACH
The Greater Philadelphia Marketing Tourism Corporation has undertaken a campaign to reach millennials through a campaign called “Philadelphia Neighborhoods”. The campaign encourages locals and visitors to “go one more block” to explore the neighborhoods’ storied streets, buzzed-about restaurants, emerging art galleries, independent shops, intimate music venues, plentiful parks and hip, annual festivals. This digitally-savvy initiative leverages GPTMC’s social media programs to form the foundation of the campaign, with a focus on engaging millennials. Using a variety of social tactics via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, GPTMC tapped into vast social networks to highlight each neighborhood through the eyes of people who live there. Leveraging the established and successful With Love, Philadelphia XOXO branding campaign, GPTMC uses paid media to support the neighborhoods campaign targeting millennials through digital advertising. This session will present how these tactics have succeeded in the goal of driving young visitors and residents to spend time (and money) in the neighborhoods and driving traffic to visitphilly.com/neighborhoods.
