Event Details

Attendees at CONVERGE ChicagoYour company is counting on you to figure out how to pull all the pieces together and create a social media strategy that will put your brand ahead of the competition and increase ROI.

The Institute for Social, Search & Mobile Marketing (ISSMM) has created another social media conference designed to help corporate practitioners like you reach your goals. CONVERGE Engage is focused on you.

As with all our events, this conference is not a “Variety Show” or “Pundit Fest”— CONVERGE features expert practitioners providing real-world branding business cases; specifically, those who enhance both brand engagement with consumers and, ultimately, contribute to the bottom line.

You’ll learn the latest best practices from an impressive list of profeesionals, just like you, who will share their knowledge and give you insights so that you can navigate these new marketing disciplines.

Learn From Global Brands & Industry Leaders

For the low price of $299, you'll have access to almost a dozen top leaders in the social and mobile space including experts from Team One/Lexus, Cisco, Google, Badgeville, Clorox, State Farm, and more.
