Upcoming Marketing Events

I usually do this in the fall but there are a few big events taking place in the next month and a half so it seemed worth a calendar update.

June 8   –   Marketing Awards @ The Carlu
Hosted by Marketing Magazine this is a pretty self-explanatory event – come pick up your new office decor.

Tickets and more details here

June 13 –  Social Media Conference presented by CMA @ Allstream Centre
A full day conference covering branding and marketing in the new social media driven consumer society. Learn about consumer engagement, dig deeper into online behavior and online strategy techniques. All in all an educational day with some pretty impressive speakers including Nikisha Reyes from Xbox,  Jon Sinden from Maple Leaf Sports, Graham Moysey from AOL Canada and many others.

Tickets and more details here (there’s a chance to win tickets as well).

June 13-15 – NXNE Interactive @ Hyatt Regency 
80 presentations spread over 3 full days discussing interactive and social content, new technology and trends. The fact that this is an NXNE partner program makes it that much more interesting because the content spreads across music and film in addition to marketing. The highlight of the week could be a presentation from the men of Epic Meal Time, stage design presentation from the mighty people of Ninja Tune or straight up ad talk with Jason Theodor and alike.

July 26 – Social Mix 2012 @ Fairmont Royal York Hotel

In their own words: “learn how to harness the power of social media for your business” – enough said. Jokes aside though I am aware people are throwing around turms like that left and right these days but these guys are for real – Gary Vaynerchuk and Amber Mac are just some of the presenters.
