WHAT IS NEXT! 2018?

Smart Strategies for Local Business Leaders

This event will bring hundreds of innovative business owners, industry thought leaders, and key influencers together to hear some of our nation's most respected marketing experts share the trends, strategies, and expertise you need to rapidly accelerate business growth.

Smart business leaders recognize how important the right digital presence is to their business, but struggle to keep up. Technology and user-behaviors are changing so fast, and there’s no shortage of biased advice from marketers. This event is designed to give our area businesses a powerful advantage with first-to-know information about Google’s changes. Speakers from Local University and Google will share recent updates and strategies you can use to get an advantage over your competition online. The schedule is a practical mix of presentations and round-table exercises – a great format for learning and for business networking with other business stakeholders. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the speakers — including Google team members — and ask them questions during break times, in round-table discussions, and at the panel discussion at the end of the day.
