THE FUTURE OF MARKETING, INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS HERE.

WELCOME TO #THEPOST.

CALLING ALL LEADERS, DOERS AND DISRUPTORS

An event that will forever change the way you see the world, and the way the world sees your business.

Presented by The Social School and powered by Press + Post, The Post Conference is a one-day world-class gathering of founders, authors, entrepreneurs, CEO’s, CMO’s and beyond, followed by a day of game-changing hands-on workshops covering today’s most timely marketing topics and business innovation tactics.

We’re breaking the mould and bringing to life the most accessible and awe-inspiring conference of its kind, and inviting you to learn from the leaders, dreamers and doers who are not just influencing their industries, but disrupting them top to bottom.

BEYOND THE LEARNING, THERE IS THE LAUNCHING

Day 2 of The Post brings an invaluable day of hands-on Labs to life, led by industry experts, awe-inspiring insiders, and the top strategists, writers, photographers, publishers and digital advertisers in the business. 

With topics ranging from top digital marketing technology to content, creativity and messaging and beyond, it’s a jam-packed day of actionable learns and hands-on labs.

Interspersed throughout the learning sessions and ‘tool breaks’ will be sit-down blind date-esque coffee chats between some of North America’s most notable founders and CEO’s, candidly questioning each other about the in’s and out’s of their many wins and losses along the way.

This exciting mixed-format one-day event will not only round off your Post 2017 experience with a bang, but set your conference learns up for maximum success.

Tickets available while they last.

                                                  The POST was a rockstar package of people, products and page-filling professorship. The success stories from the conference reignited my drive to make my business work, no matter what. Ethan Song’s opening line “if you want your project to work you’re going to have to quit your day job” rang unnervingly true.
