imedia isn't your typical conference. 

We don’t spend days talking about theory & in-a picture-perfect-world “stuff.” iMEDIA cuts out the BS & gives attendees a no-fluff approach to social media marketing (& some other up and coming digital media applications as well!)

Over the course of the iMEDIA Weekend, attendees will receive interactive, practical learning opportunties with industry pros, plenty of chances to network with their peers, & most importantly, that little extra umph  to take their social media initiatives up a notch.

iMEDIA is all about giving you the resources you need to walk away feeling equipped, energized and ready to hit the ground running.


WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

iMEDIA will take place over two days, March 11 & 12th, 2016. After last year's conference, we received feedback that you folks wanted even more networking opportunities. Your wish is our command! 

iMEDIA Weekend will now offer a Friday Night Keynote address with a networking event to follow. This event will be open to the public so that even more of you can opt in to "get your learn on."

The Saturday will still be a full day of social media learning with the conference schedule featuring Keynote speakers, 15+ Breakout Sessions, and you guessed it, networking time! Because we bring together such an amazing group of like-minded individuals (and surprise, they're all interested in learning about digital media, just like you!) it's expected that your learning and networking will overlap. 

All iMEDIA registrants will be given the opportunity to select their iMEDIA 2016 Breakout Sessions in February 2016. 


WHO SHOULD ATTEND IMEDIA?

Well, let's make this simple for you. Whether you're interested in social media, hoping to up your SEO game, or managing all of the social media accounts for a (or your!) company, iMEDIA is for you. If you're in business development at a not-for-profit, sitting at the decision making table in a tower downtown, or running an e-commerce business out of your basement, there is something for you at the iMEDIA conference. 

Here are some of the roles held by past iMEDIA attendees.

what kind of breakout sessions will be featured?

Being that the social media waters are constantly moving, we like to make sure that we're covering the most current and up-to-date information. This means that we're adding to our Breakout Session lineup until the month before the conference. Here are some (emphasis on the some) of the sessions that we've held at past conferences to give you an idea of the versatility of our sessions.
