What we're about

Marketers Anonymous is a monthly meetup run by marketers for marketers.

Hear success stories first-hand, learn cutting-edge marketing tactics, discover the latest industry research and insights, and get to know others in the local marketing community.

Each meetup will have time for networking, a 10 minute lightning talk, and a 20 minute feature speaker. These are meant to be interactive show and tell sessions. Ask questions. Experience share.

Join us on the 3rd Friday of each month at the Blue Moon TapHouse (https://watersidedistrict.com/tenant/blue-moon-taphouse/) at Waterside. A server will take your lunch and drink order and you'll get your own check. It'll be on a Friday afternoon and you'll be at a tap house... feel free to have a cold one!
