As you make your travel plans for some summer good times, we thought we'd let you know about some exciting places where we'll be in June.
When you look at our list, you're probably going to say to yourself, "Jeepers, these guys love Denver & Portland!" and you'll be right. Denver & Portland are home to two of our Emma offices, and we're looking forward to spending time with our Colorado & Oregon colleagues. If you're nearby and want to meet with us, give us a shout and we'll set something up.
Open Source Bridge Conference
June 1 – 4 :: Portland, OR
This is our second year in a row sponsoring the Open Source Bridge Conference. This is a newer conference organized for developers who work with open source technologies or are interested in learning more about open source. Not only is this a great opportunity for our Portland developers to connect and share experiences with other developers in Portland, but we also can show some local support to such an important group in one of our Emma cities. If you're planning on attending, please say hello to Michelle, Mark and Jay, our Emma developers who will be attending. If you're a developer and want to know more about our job opportunities, be sure to let them know. (You can learn more here.)
Creative Freelancer Conference
June 5 – 6 :: Denver, CO
This event kicks off HOW's week of design conferences — it's for designers, illustrators, photographers, copywriters and other creative professionals. We're supplying some fun tote bag inserts here, so if you're attending, you'll receive some Emma love.
InHOWse Design Conference
June 6 – 8 :: Denver, CO
If you're a manager or lead of an in-house creative team, this event may be right up your alley. This year, HOW is anticipating 400 total attendees from small to large-sized companies. We'll have an exhibit table at this year's event, so please do stop by and say hello to Sam Farkas. FYI, Sam plays guitar for a band that is playing at Bonnaroo this year. Pretty awesome, eh?
HOW Design Conference
June 6 – 9 :: Denver, CO
The HOW Design Conference is one of those signature events that we've really come to love being a part of each year. We put a lot into the design of our customers' brands in email, so participating in these events gives us a chance to share more about Emma and gives us a chance to get to know what other creative professionals are up to.
Emma's Jonathan Gesinger and Taylor Schena will be leading a session, providing helpful tips for creating stylish and effective email campaigns on Tuesday, June 8th from 10:45 AM – 12 PM. You can register for this session here. Not only will we have an exhibit space where you'll find two wonderful folks from our sales crew, Gina LaMar and Theresa McLoughlin, but you may also run into two of Emma's fabulous designers, Jennifer Kasdorf and Jimmy Thorn, who will be attending the overall conference.
Online Marketing Summit's 22-City Regional Tour
June 16th (Portland, OR) & June 23rd (Denver, CO)
This year, OMS will be visiting 23 cities across the United States and Canada as part of their regional tour to bring best practices in online marketing to more than 250 attendees in each city. Each city will receive a single day of online marketing education and peer networking. This month, we'll be speaking and sponsoring in two of our Emma cities, Denver and Portland. Then in July, we'll be at the Austin event on the 21st.
If you're going to be at any of these events or in the area, definitely let us know. Hope you all have a great summer!
