The state of Georgia houses an impressive roster of companies, nonprofits, and a vibrant ecosystem of start-ups. The conference will be capped by the prestigious 28th MAX (Marketing Excellence) Awards to recognize and honor marketing innovations developed and implemented during 2022-23 by companies based in Georgia. We will recognize excellence in marketing innovation across three categories: established firms, start-ups, and nonprofits.
The event will bring together hundreds of senior marketing professionals from the metro Atlanta region and beyond. Be prepared to make new connections and/or reignite old relationships. The previous edition of this event attracted over 350 marketers and business leaders from diverse industries, including nonprofits and start-ups.
The conference will take place in the extraordinary Oceans Ballroom of the Georgia Aquarium in downtown Atlanta. Sneak a peek at magnificent sea creatures as the conference unfolds. Savor the delectable food from Wolfgang Puck catering services. We promise a memorable experience.
This event is being produced in collaboration with the GSU Marketing RoundTable at the Robinson College of Business of Georgia State University. The GSU Marketing RoundTable is one of the longest-running Marketing RoundTables in the country, comprising over 50 senior marketing professionals representing many of Georgia’s premier companies. Members of the Marketing RoundTable help judge the entries for the MAX Awards.
This event comes with a purpose. The proceeds from this event go towards funding minority marketing scholarships for students at Georgia State University.
