Emma’s Marketing United Conference Announces A Bold Lineup of Speakers, Expects Biggest Year Ever


(NASHVILLE, TENN. – JANUARY 6, 2017) Emma, a provider of best-in-class email marketing software and services, today announced the 2017 lineup of keynote speakers at their third-annual Marketing United conference. Marketing United, taking place April 19-21 at the Country Music Hall of Fame in downtown Nashville, features three days of inspiring keynotes, hands-on workshops and collaborative sessions from leading brands and influencers in marketing today. Keynote speakers include:


  • Mitch Lowe, co-founder of Netflix;
  • Cynthia Round, SVP of marketing at Metropolitan Museum of Art;
  • Kevin Carroll, author and consultant at Katalyst, previously Nike;
  • Matthew Luhn, storyteller at Pixar;

  • Tamsen Webster, founder and CEO of Strategic Speaking;
  • Oli Gardner, co-founder of Unbounce; and
  • Scott Stratten, president of UnMarketing.


Marketers from all over the world gather at Marketing United to share ideas, learn from experts and network in one of America’s fastest growing cities, and many will be returning for a second or third year in a row. “I would go to Marketing United even if I wasn't speaking,” said Convince & Convert president and third-year Marketing United speaker, Jay Baer. “And that doesn't happen very often.”


Marketing United attendees will also be taking away expert insight from collaborative and in-depth sessions in marketing strategy and automation, email, e-commerce and retail marketing, social strategy, community-building and advocacy, SEO, video marketing and much more.


“We’re really pulling out the stops for year three of Marketing United,” said Emma CEO, Clint Smith. “The speaker roster is more impressive than ever, the workshops will offer more value than ever, and I’m pretty sure the evening social events will not disappoint. We want attendees to return home feeling not just more informed, but more inspired to do great things, and this year’s event promises to be that kind of catalyst.”


In prior years, Marketing United has featured speakers from top marketing brands like charity: water, Warby Parker, Virgin America, Eventbrite, Tito’s Vodka, Mario Batali, Litmus, Dell, Nissan, Shopify and Third Man Records.


Marketing United kicks off April 19 with a day of hands-on workshops for Emma customers at Emma’s headquarters, followed by a welcome party for all Marketing United attendees at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
