If you haven’t heard, the biggest annual sporting event in the world comes to town on Feb. 4. And with a billion eyeballs comes a seemingly equal number of marketers with ideas for capturing them. But how does that change when the Big Game sets up shop in your own backyard?
In this event, we’ll take a look at how multiple local brands activated around the premier American sporting and cultural event, holding court on strategy, sponsorship restrictions and its related challenges, measurement, and the insights that can be applied to other national events that will be choosing Minnesota for future activations, such as the NCAA Final Four and another round of the X Games.
Not all conversations can happen around the water cooler.
At Undisclosed, Ad industry pros will take on the topics we don’t discuss but should talk about more.

MIMA Monthly: Artificial Intelligence, Computational Propaganda and What It Means for Marketers
So much of the marketing press related to Artificial Intelligence (AI) these days feels quite fluffy. Chatbots and smart
The MIMA Summit is the largest gathering of digital creatives, technologists, storytellers, advertisers, marketers, and product strategists in the Midwest. The Summit injects new creative and forward-thinking energy into our audience of professionals who work at agencies, Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, and creative collaboratives.
Let’s face it: rules were made to be broken. And that’s never been more true than with social media marketing. After all, the rules change every day as there are new platforms, new algorithms and new business problems to solve. But a lot of what was true when social came on the seen just doesn’t hold water any longer. And some marketing methods that were around long before social are still tried and true. Come learn how powerful your efforts can be when you strike the right balance. Warning: you might learn something from these counterintuitive lessons.
MIMA is proud to present a brand-new offering starting in 2017 – the Digital Deep-Dive Workshop Series. These workshops are all about taking a deep dive on a specific digital marketing topic with accelerated, hands-on training brought to you by an expert thought leader. Expect a full immersion blending strategy and tactics, with practical learning and tools you can start applying right away to move your career forward.
Join MIMA on August 9th for its members-only MIMA Meetup. This Meetup will be an interactive discussion all about influencer marketing including what brands and companies are doing it best, how you can get started and improve your partnerships, and an opportunity to learn from the influencers themselves.
Join us for the August Monthly on Thursday, Aug 17th. Chad Halvorson, Founder/CEO of the Minneapolis start-up company When I Work, willl talk about why managing qualitative and quantitative data is critical to executing a UX strategy that materially drives customer growth.
