Who Attends EMS

 Even in a volatile business landscape—with all the rules getting rewritten in real-time—nothing beats the power of experiential marketing. The Experiential Marketing Summit has become the event industry’s mega-show for for b-to-b and b-to-c brand-side marketers, trade show organizers, executives from leading event agencies, meeting planners, event strategists, experience designers, event technology gurus and more.

What You'll Learn

EMS is the ultimate three-day conversation for event and trade show marketers. How will the industry thrive in the months ahead? What are the world’s leading brands planning for this year and beyond? How will brand experiences change and adapt to a market that’s constantly changing? Everything is on the table at the Experiential Marketing Summit—and you can’t afford to miss it.

Who You'll Learn From

Only at EMS, the brands you know, love and respect are your teachers and mentors. From traditional breakout sessions, to Q&As, to deep-dive workshops, to power panels and keynotes—you’ll get senior-level perspectives on the current experiential marketing landscape and what’s to come next. The Summit delivers the most mission-critical trends, best practices and how-tos available on experiential marketing.


At Event Marketer, we want to ensure that the Experiential Marketing Summit is evolving to fit the needs of the marketers who attend our events. As part of our efforts, we have engaged an Advisory Board of leading brand event marketers to help us curate an enhanced program and create an even better EMS.
