What we're about

Begun in 1922 as the National Industrial Advertising Association, ANA Business Marketing (formerly the Business Marketing Association) today represents a lifetime of expertise in business-to-business marketing and communications. For more than 80 years, the group has been the pre-eminent service organization for professionals in this vital industry.

The Philadelphia chapter of ANA Business Marketing is dedicated to improving professional skills and networking for business-to-business professionals through hosted educational events, panel discussions, expert guest speakers and social and networking events. The chapter also includes ‘having fun’ in its list of objectives!

Keynote Presentations

Our premier events are our Keynote sessions. These educational programs feature some of the top B2B marketing minds in the region. Keynote sessions are conducted in a variety of formats, moderated panel sessions, presentation and dinner round table, and are always filled with valuable content about the latest in marketing practice, technology and trends.

Peer-to-Peer Roundtables

ANA Business Marketing Philadelphia has launched a new series in our programming calendar, the Peer-to-Peer Roundtable Breakfasts. We think this is a great new addition for two reasons. The first, who better can you learn from than your peers? These breakfasts are all about exchanging ideas, best practices and finding solutions to tough problems.

The second reason, these events are free to all. We will hold them at a location where you can purchase coffee and or breakfast or we warn you in advance to bring it along with you.

Meet-Up Happy Hours

If you have not been to an ANA Business Marketing happy hour yet you don’t know what you are missing. Almost every person who comes to our networking events tells us they can’t believe how much fun they had and how friendly everyone is.

What you will find at an ANA Business Marketing event, whether it’s at one of our monthly programs or a happy hour, are people engaged in conversations about marketing, life, family, the latest movie, etc.

What you don’t find at our events is an environment of a business card exchange. People don’t just want to know what you do for a job…they want to know what you do in life.

We hope to see you at our next event!
