NETWORKING BREAKFAST (9:00 – 10:00AM)
INTRODUCTIONS & NETWORKING "FIRESTARTER" SESSION (10:00 – 10:15AM)
One of the benefits of ANA Committees is the ability to share and learn from fellow marketers in a "closed door" environment and to leverage and share knowledge and insights with marketing peers. Often times, many marketers have similar challenges in areas like measurement, content marketing, digital advertising, social media best practices, walled gardens, working with influencers, programmatic, how to tap into new technologies like VR, AI, and AR, agency management, etc. During introductions, we will ask members to share 1-2 "hot topics" or key areas of focus/challenge in the digital & social space as a way to facilitate more one-to-one networking between members with similar challenges during coffee breaks and lunch.
