Make a smart shift.

Despite the challenges, the future is bright. In this make-or-break moment, inspiration, insight and smart strategy will catapult us to success. BrandSmart is here to help. As the longest-running brand marketing conference in the country (now in its 19th year), BrandSmart brings together noteworthy speakers and future-forward brand marketers—a who’s who of decision-makers and influencers—to share proven tools, smart ideas and inspiring stories.

Powered by Whova, attendees will get the full virtual conference experience—with many concurrent sessions and keynotes; the opportunity to visit the “booths” of numerous leading marketing solutions providers; and virtual networking tools to foster valuable connections.

Our Audience

BrandSmart draws 400 attendees each year, the majority of whom hail from the Midwest (Chicagoland, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan). Their employers are a near-even split between agencies and brands.
