Boot Camp Digital
, a local social media and Internet marketing company, has teamed with InfoTrust
to put on SIMEngage
, a full day event featuring some of the nation’s leading experts in the field. The event will take place May 15 at Memorial Hall
The event is expected to attract more than 300 of the Cincinnati area’s marketing professionals, including those from big brands, advertising agencies and small businesses, and will provide attendees with information on social media and internet marketing, as well as an opportunity to network.
“For marketers, this is a fabulous opportunity to learn about the most relevant and important topics in social media marketing,” says Boot Camp Digital CEO Krista Neher. “This event will cover the most important topics and trends impacting social media marketing today.”
The event will feature speakers from companies such as Google, Hubspot, CafePress and more, who will be focusing on five key themes: Creating and Leveraging Killer Content; The Intersection of Search + Social; Generating Publicity through Social Media; Analytics and Future Trends; and Connecting Paid, Earned and Owned.
“I speak over 100 times a year, and the reason that I created this event was because I wanted to connect the best, brightest and most interesting speakers in the field with our local community,” Neher says. “I invited the speakers that most inspire me to speak at this event, all of whom are experts in their field, and most of them are bestselling authors. Every time I hear these people I learn something new.”
Neher also notes that, compared to previous marketing conferences like D2
, SIMEngage is more narrowly focused on social media and internet marketing.
“These are the areas that impact marketers most,” Neher says. “Our speakers aren’t the big name executives at big companies who set strategies—they are the actual doers
. They are actually implementing online marketing every day. That is what makes this event unique.”
Neher hopes that by bringing an event of this caliber to Cincinnati, it will not only engage the community to stay ahead of the curve, but also demonstrate to the speakers from out of town that Cincinnati is indeed a world-class hub of innovation, branding and marketing.
