Marketing United 2016 in photos


Can you believe it's only been a few weeks since Marketing United 2016 wrapped?

It left us so inspired that we're already getting fired up about attending more impactful sessions, soaking up more wisdom from super engaging speakers... essentially, what we know will add up to an another incredible time in 2017. (It's happening April 19-21, so go ahead and save the date!)

We could go on and on about all the things we loved about this year's conference – and to some extent, we already have. So since pictures are worth a thousand words, let's take a look back in the more literal sense. Here are some of our favorite photos from Marketing United 2016... sit back and reminisce with us, won't you?



Attendees participated in charity: water’s virtual reality experience and raised over $10,000 to bring clean water to a community in need.



Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer at MarketingProfs, kicked things off on Day 2 with a keynote on bigger, bolder, braver marketing.



CEO and Founder of Convince & Convert Jay Baer delivered an inspiring and thought-provoking closing keynote, then memorably led a marching band to Emma HQ for the after-party!



There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when CEO Scott Harrison shared the powerful story of the founding of charity: water. (Seriously... none of us were immune to ugly crying. Thank goodness it was dark in there!)



The CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame, home to Marketing United. So many smart folks graced this stage.



Scott Stratten and Alison Kramer of UnMarketing interview Emma CEO Clint Smith for a live taping of their hit UnPodcast.



Over 700 (brilliant, hilarious... we'll stop, but we love you guys!) marketers came to Nashville to hear from top brands and the industry’s leading experts.



Speakers shared practical tips and examples to help attendees do their best marketing when they got back to the office.



Lights shine bright on Aaron Draplin of DDC and Field Notes.



Speakers, sponsors & customers got a taste of Nashville (and some delicious sliders) at the VIP party at Legends Corner.



Emma opened its doors to 180 customers for the Marketing United pre-conference.



Pre-conference attendees learned from Emma staff how to make the most of their accounts and get better results from email marketing.



Huge thanks to all of our 2016 sponsors! There’s no way it would have been so amazing without them.
