Why Attend

Collaboration and innovation are core tenets of marketing. By attending Activate, you get a firsthand look at how rapid advancements and adoption of AI in 2023 have shown marketers efficiency and productivity gains—not to mention the sheer acceleration of execution.

At Activate Summit 24, we set out to marketers with strategies and tips for combining AI, cross-channel marketing, and human ingenuity to make marketing moments that last. Leading marketing experts are coming from around the world to share their experiences—their successes and failures—and their best advice about how they connect people with products that bring them joy.

Who You’ll Meet

Activate Summit is for the marketing masters involved in bringing customers a delightful experience. And it takes a team—a cross-functional crew of Dreamers, Builders, and Makers—in order to craft a truly meaningful moment. Because every expert brings something unique to the table.

 Dreamers

Dreamers constantly have an innovative, clear eye on the future. They think big and identify the direction of your brand and ensure customers grow along with the business.

 Builders

Builders thrive in problem solving and shaping the foundation on which the business succeeds. They construct products that bring customers joy and create the best infrastructure to empower brand growth.

 Makers

Makers foster connections directly with customers. They craft strategies and tactics that promote long term relationships and satisfy the customer’s call for individualization.
