In an era where technology dominates most professional interactions, it has become easier than ever to access career development without leaving your home or office. So why spend the money and travel time to attend a marketing conference? Because there is no substitute for direct industry networking with the best minds in the business.
Digital interactions are static and rarely translate your level of confidence, competence, and individuality the same way that face-to-face encounters often do.
As a result, it makes it harder for you to stick out from the enormity of the digital crowd. That is why more marketers are jumping on the conference circuit to promote greater visibility, heighten professional networking skills, and engage in more intimate learning opportunities.
So where can you find marketing conferences popping off in 2016?
