The launch event of Marketers’ Community was a huge hit. If you missed it we hope you can make this next event. We are coming together again to bring the best and brightest minds together from all across the Twin Cities for our fourth community-building and educational event.

Welcome to Marketers’ Community of MN

We’re talking apostrophe-after-s: Marketers’. It’s plural, because we’re better together. It’s possessive, because this community belongs to all of us. Your participation is what makes this community meaningful. Your input is what makes our events valuable. We just wouldn’t be the same without you. Similar to our debut event there will be networking, snacks, a riveting panel conversation, real world case studies, and plenty of time to mix-n-mingle. Come on out and join us!
