3) Event Marketing Summit – May 7-9 at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, UT. Registration: $1,995

Join more than 1,000 event marketers from around the world at the leading executive training conference on experiential marketing. Now in its 12th year, the Event Marketing Summit has become the industry’s annual gathering place, where emerging trends are predicted and dissected, best practices are explained and some of the biggest case studies are shared. At the Summit, you’re not just passing the heads of event marketing from Coke, Intel, Mercedes, Anheuser-Busch, Cisco, HP, Verizon, American Express, Microsoft and others in the hallway—they’re your actual teachers, along with hand-picked design experts, strategy chiefs and bestselling authors.

Summit sessions are available in a variety of formats, from 20-minute speed briefings up to three-hour in-depth workshops–allowing you to tailor your learning experience to your specific needs. Attend longer sessions on topics that are critical and hit up shorter briefings on subjects you just need to touch on.
