Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON) Registration Is Now Open

Editor’s Note from Paul: I founded the Marketing Artificial Intelligence Institute in 2016 because I wanted to understand the current and future potential of AI to transform our agency (PR 20/20), and the industry. I believe that at least 80% of the services we provide will be intelligently automated to some degree within the next five years. The agencies that understand, pilot and scale AI in their operations and services will have a potentially insurmountable competitive advantage. But, time is of the essence. I hope you’ll join us for the inaugural Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON). Be curious. Explore AI.

How do you get started with, and scale, artificial intelligence in your marketing? There’s a conference for that, and you’re invited.

Registration for the inaugural Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON) is now open. The event will be held in Cleveland, Ohio at the Huntington Convention Center, July 16 – 18, 2019.  

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

The potential for AI to disrupt business operations and drive revenue is exponential, but many aren’t sure how to get started. Through workshops, keynotes, and breakout sessions, MAICON will take you beyond the industry jargon to learn what’s possible.

Early adopters can and will make AI their competitive advantage; time is of the essence for professionals and brands to adopt AI and accelerate change.

Are you ready?

We invite you to join us in navigating marketing’s next frontier. Sign up before Dec. 15 to take advantage of special pricing.
