Learn all about Making the Digital Pivot at MarkeTech 2021
KEARNEY – GROW Nebraska’s 2021 MarkeTech Conference is set to be more timely than ever, with a theme aimed at tackling the digital adjustments all businesses were forced to make in 2020.
MarkTech 2021, held July 15 at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney, NE, will be all about Making the Digital Pivot.
Anchored by two keynote addresses from internet marketing expert David McBee, this year’s conference is aimed at helping businesses and organizations adjust their plans to the new digital world, no matter where they are in the process.
“For better or worse, the pandemic changed the way we all live. It changed the way all businesses do business. Customers shifted more time, and more of their dollars, online,” said GROW’s Director of Marketing and Business Development Tiffany Stoiber. “Experts are guessing many of the habits formed during the pandemic are here to stay, and GROW Nebraska is here to help businesses adapt to those new habits.”
From experts like McBee to Nebraska entrepreneurs who have made the pivot themselves, MarkeTech 2021 will feature a variety of analysis, advice and new ideas attendees will be able to take with them into the rest of the year and beyond.
McBee’s keynotes are intended for all audiences, whether listeners are entrepreneurs just starting to make the digital pivot or businesses ahead of the curve who want to make sure their marketing efforts are as effective as they can be. McBee’s morning session will be on Making the Digital Pivot and in the afternoon he will tackle Internet Marketing ROI.
The speaker lineup will also include two panel sessions: one featuring digital marketers and one featuring Nebraska businesses who will share their success stories from 2020.
Interspliced between these sessions will be numerous networking breaks, a past attendee favorite. Businesses will set up booths to create a “Networking Plaza” where they can share their stories and attendees can hear those stories, see businesses’ products and even grab some samples.
McBee will also have a booth set up where attendees can meet the keynote speaker and complete a free “Internet Presence Audit” with him.
Registration for the in-person July 15 conference is now live. GROW Nebraska members can currently attend for $59 per person. The rate for non-members is $159. Early bird rates are currently in effect, and the cost for registration will increase after June 15.
Members and non-members alike can also register for an exhibitor booth to be set up in the Networking Plaza. Rates are $109 for members and $399 for non-members. Those prices include the booth space plus two conference passes.
