The vast amount of smart phones and tablets are creating consumers who are more connected, more informed, more demanding, and more distracted than ever before. And today’s consumers want more. Gone are the days of actively absorbing traditional advertising messages. Now they are actively seeking out the services and experiences that matter to them and improve their lives. Anything less is a waste of their time and attention. So what is a marketer to do? Great question and if you’re asking that, it is time to get a ticket because Sandy’s presentation will be focused on brand building for 2014 and beyond. He is also promising to wear his fancy presentation jeans. You’ll want to see both.

Our space is getting a reputation as a venue for cool events. Of course, our Partner Tara was married here about a year ago. And then we hacked our way through some mega design awesomeness raising money along the way for Imagine1day earlier this year at the Gastown Design Showdown. And recently we worked our way through a plethora of pumpkin beer for our first ever “Pumpkintoberfest”.
This is an intimate event showcasing some of the best of Vancouver. It’s a gathering of Vancouver’s established and emerging local shops and entrepreneurs. At it’s core it’s simply a desire to want to see local connect with local. And we love that.
