Alumni Expert Speaker Panel Series presents Next Generation Marketers

How Modern Marketers Are Staying Ahead Of The Ever-Changing Marketing Landscape

Marketing evolves with the technology and demands of each generation. New generation customers are more tech-savvy than ever and take into consideration how companies behave with microscopic vision. Focusing marketing efforts on how next generation customers are interacting with companies and how they communicate with these companies is important to keep top of mind.

Join us on January 24th, 2019 at the University of the Fraser Valley as our five experts will explain how today’s leading marketing teams are adapting to these trends for the present, future and next generation. You will learn how their teams are challenging the status quo and which trends are most important to keep an eye on and why.
