The African American Marketing Association (AAMA) recently concluded its acclaimed Marketing for the Culture Summit 2023. The three-day event in Houston brought together top-tier professionals, entrepreneurs, and creative talents in the marketing industry for a summit of meaningful dialogue, collaboration, and progress for Black marketers.
Previously, Atlanta hosted the inaugural summit in 2022 where the theme was “Monetizing Your Content.”
In this year’s Marketing for the Culture Summit 2023, its “Knocking Doors Down,” theme invites participants to delve into an engaging agenda to cultivate innovation, endorse diversity, and propel growth within the marketing sphere.
AAMA President Michelle Ngome talks about the success of the event in a LinkedIn post. “For the past 18 months, I have been battle-tested putting on this event for the past year. But I’m glad to say my heart is full of gratitude and things are finally turning around,” says Ngome. “Special thanks to the HP team Tara J. Agen, Esenam Asembri, Nicole P., Danielle D. Jones, and more. Thanks for believing in and supporting the dream of a visionary and being a true partner. Thank you to the AT&T Small Business Team with Charles Stein, Christian Cravens. This is just the beginning of what we can achieve.”
Many blue-chip and professional services companies were also in attendance. They include Blacks at Microsoft; b.id; Dragonfly Editorial; LevelThree Media; Line Consulting; LR Training Solutions; Trulove Studios; Twice Media Productions; Onward Search; and Disctopia.
As for next year, organizers tell Brand&Culture that the Marketing for the Culture Summit 2024 will be in Houston.
