The past year has brought unprecedented challenges and changes to the digital space as everyone moved to virtual… everything. The 12th annual ANA Digital & Social Media Conference presented by Meredith will feature content including channel optimization, influencer marketing, digital transformation, measurement, and developing inclusive and responsive creative. Leaders from top brands will cover how the pandemic and social justice issues of 2020 have changed what consumers expect from corporations and products. Register today to join us in Carlsbad, CA or virtually to be ready for the next phase of digital evolution.
