It's that time again, readers. No, not the time when I belt out Journey's classic "Faithfully." I'm referring to that time when I share all of the exciting places Emma will be this upcoming month. You'll have to wait for the next karaoke happy hour to hear me butcher the vocals to some classic Steve Perry. Until that day and without further ado, here's where you can find us in May:
May 2 - 5 :: Oklahoma City, OK
This is our second year in a row participating in the National Mainstreets Conference. This conference is put together by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and educates the cities about preserving areas that will help grow new businesses and create more jobs. We'll have a booth at this year's event, so be sure to stop by and say hello to Casey and Sam.
MarketingProfs B2B Forum
May 3 -5 :: Boston, MA
We're big fans of the MarketingProfs crew. We've been attending their events for a few years now and always have a great time. At last year's event, they had more than 375 B2B marketers in attendance and supplied some content that was really popular. Our very own Rami, Brooks, Steve and Carolyn will be around during this event, so please look for them and give Steve a fist bump. If you sign up now, you'll get $200 off your registration. Click here and use the coupon code b2bspn. Hey, I'll fist bump to that.
May 6 :: Portland, OR
In 2009, we sponsored Innotech Austin, the Business & Technology Innovation Conference. The show had a great turnout and sparked so many positive conversations that we decided to participate in this year's Innotech Oregon. Another exciting aspect of this event is that it's in another one of our home cities, Portland. If you're going to be in the Portland area and would like to meet Kris, Jenny and Matt at this year's event, you can register here.
RM DMA Day
May 19 :: Denver, CO
We'll have a booth at this year's DM DAY for Denver-area direct marketers. The schedule for this year's event includes workshops and seminars from marketing experts and an excellent lineup of speakers. Brooks and Gina will be at the Emma booth in the exhibit hall during the show, so be sure to stop by.
Colorado Business MarketPlace
May 20 :: Denver, CO
Our next stop in Denver is the Colorado Business MarketPlace. This Denver Chamber event is a tradeshow and networking event and is free for all chamber members in the Colorado area. You'll be able to enjoy some one-on-one time with Gina and Brooks at the Emma table there as well.
National Restaurant Association Show 2010
May 22 – 25 :: Chicago, IL
No, we aren't a restaurant, nor do we serve world-class dishes … except for a few of our staffers who make killer brownies. But we do enjoy supporting the restaurant and food industry, so that's why we'll be at this year's NRA in Chicago. (We also love sampling the delicious food while we're there.) Our booth will be in the Technology Pavilion, and Steve, Rami and Frank will be there to answer any questions you may have.
We'd love to run into you at any of these events around the country. If we're in your city in May and would like to meet, feel free to let us know — especially if you'd like to work up a Steve Perry karaoke duet.
