THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
The FCS makes a triumphant return to Philadelphia with a breakfast event on "Content Marketing," hosted by our sponsor, The Inquirer.
For the past few years, marketers have responded to the demand for Content Creation as a tool to increase engagement with their audiences. But ever since digital solutions opened the floodgates, consumers of content, both retail and institutional, have been drowning. How should marketers refine their output while still optimizing their tools and ensuring their message is getting seen, heard, understood and remembered? How are marketers balancing social media content with content on their websites? How are other channels being activated to deliver content-rich messaging?
Join us for an FCS Philly breakfast event featuring a panel discussion with senior marketers and comms professionals who will share how effectively managing their content strategy has impacted business results for their brand.
Sponsorships are available for this event. Contact FCS CEO Kevin Windorf.
The breakfast will be held in Suite 300 at the Inquirer's offices at 801 Market Street. Please enter the building off of 8th Street.
