ANA Business Marketing NYC to Host 7th Annual Regional Conference – Leadership Journeys: A Conversation with Women Who are Reinventing Marketing and Success


NEW YORK, July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ANA Business Marketing NYC (formerly the New York chapter of the Business Marketing Association), announced today the 7th Annual ANA Business Marketing Regional Conference, to be held on September 28th at Ogilvy Theater in New York City. This year's conference, titled Leadership Journeys: A Conversation with Women Who are Reinventing Marketing and Success, will build upon momentum from gender equality movements such as #MeToo, #TimesUp and #SeeHer to explore marketing as a driver of change and how women are leading from the front lines, creating their own paths to transform both the marketing community and the world.

The conference brings together exceptional leaders of all levels from New York's business marketing community each year to discuss topics impacting the marketing community and beyond. Although the conference is filtered through a marketing lens, the conversation this year will include a discussion about challenges, issues and general opportunities for women's leadership.

"ANA Business Marketing NYC passionately believes that gender diversity and leadership equality are mandatory for marketing and business success, and are essential for communities to thrive across the world," said Tom Stein, President, ANA Business Marketing NYC; and Chairman and Chief Client Officer, Stein IAS. "This year's conference will create an important, thought-provoking conversation among a renowned roster of speakers, building off of last year's successful conference, Can Marketing Change the World, by articulating concrete examples of how marketing professionals are fostering positive change."
