Invisible Brands: How Brands You Might Never Think of Stay Relevant and Successful in This Highly Chaotic and Overly Messaged World
5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar
We’re switching up our May event format with an evening happy hour chat hosted by Chris Martin, VP of Creative, from G&S Business Communications!
With Invisible Brands, Chris will walk through successful companies, big and small, that you may recognize, but may not consider influencer-level. He’ll share content from them, show how creative supports the message, and ask the audience to think of a brand they might consider invisible and why.
One drink ticket and tasty wood-fired pizza from Mulino are included with your registration! We’ll plan to sit outside and enjoy Mulino’s incredible patio if the weather cooperates – if not, we’ll move the event inside. Ample parking is available on site.
Students: $28 (Valid university affiliation required.)
