February 2014 San Francisco #MKTGNerd Approved Events
Was one of your 2014 goals to get out more and meet other marketers in your area?
While LinkedIn and Twitter make finding new potential professional connections easier, it’s still important to get to know people face to face. When it comes to in-person networking, panels, meetups and workshops are an excellent way to meet fellow marketers; not to mention, keep up with the latest best practices. Because let’s face – it it’s not just important to expand your network, it’s important to expand your mind too!
This month we’ll focus on what’s coming up in San Francisco during February that will appeal to your inner-marketing nerd. Check out the listings below for the Lattice team’s #MKTGNerd approved events below:
