Our Seattle Smart Marketers event is SOLD OUT!

March 28, 2012—Seattle Art Museum

Marketer. It's a tough job.

You might sit behind a desk (some of the time), but that doesn't mean you're not waist deep in dirty work, problem solving, and creating new things (and new experiences) for fickle customers.

That's why MarketingProfs is touring the country to examine—and celebrate—today's smart marketers (like you!). We're on a quest to uncover the varied work and current challenges professional marketers and communicators face. And, we're doing it live, starting at the Seattle Art Museum.

Plus, we're putting two smart marketers under the microscope to record new episodes of our Marketing Smarts podcast. Our Seattle guests are Ian Lurie and Geoff Livingston.

It's our Smart Marketers Tour 2012.
