What to Expect at MarkeTech 2022

MarkeTech 2022 is happening June 21-22 in Kearney at the Younes Conference Center South. This conference meshes marketing and technology into two days of engaging educational training, presentations, and networking opportunities for small and large businesses.

Attendees will be able to choose from four tracks: Social Media and Marketing, Small Business Resources, Website and Google, and eCommerce.

Among the four tracks, MarkeTech will feature over 20 different speakers from across Nebraska and surrounding areas. Keynote speaker, Maria Elena Duron, will kick off the conference with her keynote session, Market in Moments. Duron is a digital marketing professional with over 18 years of experience working to ensure that businesses understand their ideal customer and how to succeed online. Maria helps both small and large businesses recognize where their customers spend time, how they make decisions, and how to identify best practices for customer conversions.

Along with Duron, Donald Everett Jr. of Runza, Tanna Hanna from Allo, Marty Jarvis of Russ’s B&R, and Ray Ward of Ward Laboratories will participate in a panel discussion titled: All Big Businesses Start Small. During the panel discussion these expert business leaders will talk through their biggest challenges, identify how to cultivate customer service, how to do more with less, and navigating eCommerce. 

In addition to the panel, MarkeTech will showcase a Resource Roundtable. The Resource Roundtable is a session that includes experts such as: Chuck Beck of the Nebraska Business Development Center, Kelly Gewecke of Nebraska Department of Economic Development, Jim Reiff of Nebraska Enterprise Fund, and Shawn Kaski of Rural Prosperity.
