3AF 2017 Asian Marketing Summit

Register now for the 3AF's 2017 Asian Marketing Summit, June 1 and 2, in Los Angeles.  This is the one and only conference dedicated to Asian marketing and advertising. Asian American is the fastest growing segment, yielding not only economic but also political power. At the same time, due to rising Asian economic powers and technology advances, lessons in Asian American marketing have implications in global marketing. This conference not only brings together experts in Asian marketing in the U.S., but also from Asia to share and create new ideas. The Summit will also include a session on the 3AF's first-ever media consumption study and the industry's only Asian Marketing Boot Camp, on May 31, designed for those new to Asian marketing or for those who want a refresher course on the critical basics.  Early bird registration pricing ends April 30.

17th Annual Cultural Insights Forum, June 6th, NYC

The theme of the 17th Annual Cultural Insights Forum in New York City is Reshaping Narratives: Diversity. Intersectionality. Media. The Cultural Insights Forum is the media industry’s leading research- and strategy-driven conference, attracting over 300 top executives in distribution, marketing, advertising, and more. Join us as we discuss the need to shift away from one-dimensional narratives about Hispanic, Black, Asian, and other international audiences, and consider how the intersectionality of race, sex, socioeconomics, and other factors affect how audiences might view themselves, how they view the world, and what they want and expect from the media. The Forum will feature a variety of sessions, including a research presentation, panel discussions, live performances, and the latest programming from top multicultural networks.

For more information and to register, please visit: www.culturalinsightsforum.com and follow the conversation on Twitter at @HorowitzInsight and #culturalinsights17
