The greatest thing about this event is that it brings together real life advice, best practices, and tips from those who are currently on the front lines of marketing within our own local community.  The wealth of knowledge coming from this event is unmatched: last year there were nearly twice as many tweets generated than total number of attendees!

2nd Annual Marketing WorkshopWhen putting together this year’s event outline, the board brainstormed about what topics might be of the most interest to local small business owners, marketing professionals, and students.
