AMA Los Angeles presents Evening Speaker Series: Experiential, Brand Experiences & Event Marketing

About this Event

Consumers are inundated with messaging from brands each and every day, making the process of standing out and gaining the right customer's attention more difficult. Experiential, on the other hand, creates memorable experiences for customers with a unique and creative opportunity to interact with and engage brands in today's digitally-centric world.

In this Evening Speaker Series panel event, we've assembled a team of experts and leaders in experiential and event marketing to offer insight and an intimate glimpse into the strategic benefits and future of this unique marketing mechanism. Join us as our panelists share their experiences, best practices and examples of activations that create lasting, positive impressions for some of the biggest brands.
