imex-america-2015-speakers

 

 

Thanks to IMEX America for inviting me to present digital marketing, LinkedIn, and PR trends for the meetings, destinations, and events industries. This is will be my third IMEX conference. At IMEX America 2014, I presented on Panoramic PR.

Thanks, also, to MPI [Meeting Professionals International] for booking me as a Smart Monday speaker. It's quite an honor to be included in this group. How cool that the Deep Dive: LinkedIn MBA session is sponsored by Visit Mexico!

This time, I'm honored to be on a panel with Adrienne Weismann, Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer at G2Crowd, a company we recommend for user based software reviews like this one about best online press release distribution tools.

If you're interested in all things meetings, events and destinations, check out IMEX America and follow the #IMEX15 conversation on twitter.

Here's where you'll find me at IMEX America . . .
