With 2017 now in full swing, it’s time to look ahead and plan for success. The one-month countdown is now on until the hottest digital marketing conference of the year takes the Avenue Q stage in the heart of New York City on March 1-2.
I’ve been to hundreds of marketing conferences and the lineup at C3 this year is one of the most exciting I’ve seen together on one stage.

In addition to our keynotes this year, we have a ton of breakout sessions with marketers ranging from huge enterprise brands like LEGO, to emerging startups like ClassPass.
