As customer engagement becomes more global, it stands to reason that your marketing peers are also global.

No longer do brand marketers look solely to marketers in their own industry and region for insights and inspiration. Instead, marketers from many different industries and countries face similar challenges, and thus can learn from one another. 

That’s the beauty of the upcoming Power to the Marketer Festival taking place on October 4–6, 2022 — it’s all about connecting with marketers from around the world to hear their stories, showcase their successes, and celebrate the impact they make for their businesses. 

During the festival, Emarsys, in association with Vogue Business, will bring top brand marketers, business leaders, and industry experts together for a jam-packed, marketing-centric event — live online, in-person, and on-demand.  

So get ready and get pumped! Here’s a look at what’s in store for you when you join the celebration. 

Live & Local Events, Global Connections

Modern technology allows us to easily forge relationships with others no matter where they are on the planet. But nothing replaces the joy and connection that comes from face-to-face interactions. 

That’s why when we talk about bringing marketers together for the Power to the Marketer Festival, we mean literally bringing marketers together in the same physical space to learn, grow, and connect. So if you’re looking for fun, exciting, and informative in-person experiences with marketing leaders and industry experts, we’ll have live events happening simultaneously in multiple cities throughout the world (and live-streaming globally).
