2019 Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference Presented by Pandora

The 2019 ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference – now in its twenty-first year – assembles top client-side multicultural marketing professionals and experts across a wide spectrum of industries to share best practices on topics such as marketing to diverse segments, measuring ROI of multicultural marketing plans, diversity and inclusion strategies, and much more.

In addition, the 19th annual ANA Multicultural Excellence Awards will recognize the year’s best multicultural advertising campaigns. Winners will be announced and celebrated at a reception on November 6.

Post-conference perspectives from attendees at previous conferences include:

  • “It was extremely insightful to see how top name brands are executing upon their D&I brand strategy. I walked away with valuable information and came away energized and ready to implement many of the ideas presented.”
  • “Information shared was invaluable to companies that have yet to forge a bold path toward Multicultural Marketing equity.”
  • “I left feeling inspired to make a change in my focus and goals for 2019 and beyond. I feel empowered to be a voice for change and can lead the charge at my company to be a voice for good.”

The ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference has become the annual “go to” event to discuss and debate industry issues, to network and celebrate!
