2019 ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference

The annual ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference is the only marketing procurement and advertising financial event of its kind. It brings together top client-side marketing procurement and finance professionals with advertising agency chief financial officers and other key industry stakeholders. The conference focuses on delivering greater value to organizations, including efficiencies, cost savings, return on investment, and more.

The conference is registered as a sponsor of continuing education with both the Institute for Supply Management and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy.

Post-conference perspectives from attendees at previous conferences include:

  • “It’s the largest and most important gathering of marketing procurement leaders and my go to resource to learn about emerging issues, benchmark best practices, and network with like minds.”
  • “I view the ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference as an incredibly valuable resource in an ever-changing marketing ecosystem.  Any advertiser who has a marketing sourcing function should consider this conference as a mandatory requirement to keep relevant.”
  • “I came away with ideas to put into action immediately as well as many contacts.  Just the networking alone is totally worth it!”
