NCET Special Event – 4th Annual State of Digital Marketing – November 20

Wednesday, November 20 | 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

Reno-Sparks Convention Center

Digital Marketing – a term that once only dealt with a few key online elements like website creation and email blasts, now represents the single-most all-encompassing advertising expenditure. Digital channels such as voice search, live video, augmented reality and others will soon dominate the digital conversation and ultimately contribute to the growth and success of any business in any industry.

On Nov 20, NCET presents our 4th Annual State of Digital Marketing Panel, featuring some of northern Nevada’s top digital marketing trailblazers. These experts will offer insight and anecdotal advice for businesses interested in growing their digital marketing presence in terms of:

  • search engine optimization
  • Social media following and engagement
  • Mobile marketing
  • AI and AR
  • And much more!

Whether you’re a business owner wanting to capitalize on early adoption of these burgeoning trends, or just an individual interested in complex world of digital marketing, you’re won’t want to miss this special event!
