AMA All Week Long: The American Marketing Association (AMA) has announced that it will be transforming the AMA Annual Conference in 2018. Their annual gathering will now be called AMA Marketing Week and will include several days “full of virtual and in-person opportunities for exploring what’s coming next in industry.” The event will take place from 3 – 5 October 2018 in Las Vegas.

Double the Knowledge: New for 2018, the 6th Annual Cyber Security for Critical Assets Summit (USA) boasts two dedicated streams for IT and OT, allowing delegates to hone in on their specialist areas of interest. The conference will also include plenary sessions addressing the common issues that bind both groups of professionals. Each stream is curated by a group of industry-leading experts to be as relevant, as cutting-edge, and as in-depth as possible over two days. The event will be held from 6 – 8 March in Houston.

Speaking Opportunity: Content Marketing World, self-described as “the largest content marketing gathering in the world,” has opened its 2018 call for speakers. Approximately 3,500 attendees from 50 countries are expected to watch more than 120 sessions and workshops covering strategy, integration, measurement, and more.  The conference organizers are looking for case studies with measurable outcomes and specific how-to session ideas that have immediate takeaways for attendees. If you are interested in speaking at the conference, taking place from 4 – 7 September in Cleveland, submit here by 15 December.

Lunchtime Learning: How do the greatest cities succeed? The New York Times Cities for Tomorrow Conference explored this very question last summer.  Bringing together industry experts, policymakers, developers, creative visionaries, entrepreneurs and others, the speakers and audience discussed trends and technologies shaping the urban environments of the future. Listen in on the conversation here.

Coming up next week: TechCrunch hosts Disrupt Berlin on 4 December, offering tech industry attendees its trademark thought leadership, startup competitions, and hackathon. Also on the 4th of December, Milken Institute kicks off its London Summit, with a 2017 theme of “New Europe: Lead, Follow, or Step Aside.” More than 800 influential leaders from more than 35 countries will attend and hear from founders, senior business leaders, analysts, and other experts on the future of the continent. Back in the states, ITVT hosts its eighth annual TVOT Intensive NYC program, gathering 500 decision makers from broadcasters, tech, and media. Lastly, the Women of the Channel Leadership Summit East runs 4 – 5 December, also in New York – and where Scarlino Speaker Strategies founder, Amy Scarlino, will be speaking this year.
