At ClickZ Live, our events are upheld by two fundamental pillars – Education and Networking. Not only do we program our agenda to include the most relevant and tactical content to enhance your digital marketing campaigns, we believe that no successful conference is complete without unique and diverse networking opportunities.
Whether it's engaging with fellow marketers over a cocktail (or a few!) at our Networking Cocktail Reception, or picking the brains of some of the industry's brightest thought leaders during our Meet the Experts Roundtables, ClickZ Live provides ample opportunities throughout our events to grow relationships and build opportunities. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect to experience at ClickZ Live New York:
ClickZ Live Newcomers Meetup

Learn what ClickZ Live is all about: which sessions and tracks will best suit your needs, all of the networking and educational sessions that should be part of your itinerary, and where to see and be seen after-hours. You'll also get the opportunity meet other newcomers and start making connections right before heading to the ClickZ Live Meet & Greet directly afterwards.
