Marketing Conferences To Check Out In 2017


Opportunities to Network

One of the most important aspects of any conference is networking. At Advanced Search Summit we don’t squeeze networking events into our schedule, the entire summit is built to be a networking experience. Sit with our speakers, engage with sponsors over amazing food, or discuss current digital marketing trends with a glass of wine. Our immersive and interactive environment makes it easy to grow your professional network and stay connected to industry thought leaders.

POV lounge

Opening Day Reception

Come and enjoy the stellar views of the White House and the Capital Mall from the POV lounge on top of the W Washington D.C., built in 1918. Engage with peers and industry leaders to recap the first day of the conference. Be prepared to participate in the Advanced Search Summit Ugly Shoe contest!

Union Building Speakeasy

Friday Night Capstone

A short walk down F street will take you to the capstone event at the National Union Building. This premium catered reception will be the peak of Advanced Search Summit in D.C.
