ANA Conference: Final Recap

The annual ANA Masters of Marketing was a marketer's dream. The final days taught us some incredible and hilarious things! We learned how worm poop can inspire an entrepreneur to create an ecologically intelligent business model, that a vending machine can do wonders for selling carrots, and how Jay-Z's "99 Problems" can help increase purchase intent.No matter where you went, you were sure to hear someone remark to another, "Aren't these speakers incredible?" And yes, they were just that good. Take a look at some highlights of the conference on our Advertising Trade Site.
