About the Conference

July 17 – 19, 2023 | Carlsbad, Calif. and Virtual




Many of the bold predictions over the past year about the accelerated advancement of Web 3.0 and the metaverse have fallen short and have been replaced with continued growth in proven digital spheres: influencer, e-commerce, gaming, social, CTV, and retail media networks.

At the 14th annual ANA Digital & Social Media Conference, presented by MNTN, you'll hear how the world's leading marketers are reaching consumers where they're at and tapping into culture and purpose by effectively leveraging trusted digital and social tools to authentically connect with their target audiences.

On Day 1, in-person attendees will have access to a half-day of interactive peer-to-peer small group trainings on the hottest digital and social topics led by marketing leaders we've handpicked for their creativity, track record of success, and ability to translate specific digital skills into tangible marketer action steps. On Days 2 and 3, senior marketers will take the main stage sharing creative case studies from various industries while highlighting the art, the science, and tangible takeaways for marketers.

Join us at the 2023 Digital & Social Media Conference and leave with the skills to bring proven marketing strategies to new challenges in the digital world.

“The digital and social world is evolving — incredibly so — but with all of this evolution, we need to keep our minds focused on driving growth.”
