We are in the infancy of AI adoption as an industry. You and your organization have the opportunity now to be proactive in advancing knowledge and capabilities, and integrating smarter marketing technology, before your competitors beat you to it.AI does not replace humans in most instances, but, rather, enhances human knowledge and capabilities. In essence, AI can give marketers and brands superpowers. Marketers who take the initiative to learn and experiment with AI will be able to:

  • Drive revenue growth.
  • Increase productivity and efficiency.
  • Generate greater ROI on marketing spend.

So, how do you get started with, and scale, AI in your marketing? Join us, and hundreds of your peers, July 16 - 18 for MAICON!

MAICON brings together top authors, entrepreneurs, AI researchers and executives to share case studies, strategies and technologies that make AI approachable and actionable for marketers. The event will be held at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, and features keynotes, breakout sessions, interactive workshops and immersive experiences.

MAICON is designed to help marketing leaders understand AI, educate their teams, garner executive support, pilot priority AI use cases, and develop a near-term strategy for successfully scaling AI.

The event is targeting director-level and above marketers, and largely caters to non-technical audiences, meaning attendees do not need backgrounds in analytics, data science or programming to understand and apply what they learn.
