ClickZ kicks off on Monday November 3rd at the beautiful Palmer House Hilton in the heart of downtown Chicago. The Palmer house is only a few blocks from Millenium Park and its famed bean structure. The Art Institute of Chicago is also only a block away from the event.
ClickZ just completed a #TreatmetoCZLChi Twitter contest where platinum passes to the event were given away to two individuals who creatively tweeted about why they were excited for the event. You can see the two winning tweets here and here
Across 4 days ClickZ features 10 different tracks and over 40 sessions. Take a look at some of the sessions we are most excited for:
#CZLChi: Day by Day
Monday at ClickZ is considered a training day before the main conference begins. Throughout the day are four sessions covering User Experience, email marketing, web analytics, and content promotion. If you are new to ClickZ you should attend the Newcomer’s Meetup at 5:30. The day ends with a Meet & Greet where you can network with the rest of your fellow ClickZ attendees.
Tuesday kicks off the main conference with an opening keynote from futurist Brian Solis. Brian will present on The A.R.T. of Engagement which focuses on “the importance of experience in each of the four moments of truth”. Did you know that our brains process images 60,000 times more quickly than text? This is just one of the many reasons that visuals are an important component of your marketing program. Krista Neher will be leading a session on Using Visuals to Generate Break-Through Results from Social Media . The beauty of an industry leading event like ClickZ is how thought leaders from a variety of different digital areas converge to share best practices. The Experts Roundtable is a fantastic example of ClickZ showcasing expertise in a variety of areas.
Wednesday starts off with a keynote from Greg Stuart, CEO of the Mobile Marketing Association, on where mobile marketing currently stands as well as what is in store for the future. One of the most talked about trends in marketing today is native advertising and its affect on the integrity of journalism. Fortunately for #CZLCHI attendees there is a session all about native content led by Lauri Baker of the Huffington Post. To wind down the day we have a happy hour which gives attendees a chance to network with presenters.
Thursday is the final day of ClickZ Chicago and it is packed with fantastic content across 12 sessions. In the morning you can learn 12 Tips for the Perfect Email Campaign from Sundeep Kapur of Allied Solutions. Marketing in a Multi Screen World teaches attendees best practices of campaigns that reach customers across more than one device.
