The SPARKS conference is the premier event focused on social marketing in the Northwest. Hosted by the Pacific Northwest Social Marketing Association (PNSMA), the conference brings together experienced social marketing practitioners, along with professionals from a variety of backgrounds, to learn and discuss the newest developments and showcase successful case studies in the field of social marketing.
This year’s main conference will be held on December 12th and will focus on some of the most urgent issues facing the Pacific Northwest. Social marketing experts from around the Northwest will showcase compelling stories of new and innovative campaigns that have effectively helped change behaviors and resulted in real, long-term change for their target audiences.
Whether you’re an experienced social marketer or a professional in another field looking to bring aspects of social marketing into your work, the SPARKS conference offers a wonderful opportunity to deepen your understanding of social marketing’s principles and real-world applications.
This year we will be adding on an optional second day workshop on December 13th. The workshop will be led by a mix of experts, including instruction on beginning and advanced topics, group discussions and key issues facing social marketers, and work sessions.
We hope to see you there!
