7_Reasons_Not_To_Attend_2016_400x200

 

We spend a lot of time convincing folks why they SHOULD attend the Brand ManageCamp conference.

 

Not this time.

 

Of course, if these reasons seem bogus to you, then just perhaps you are our PERFECT attendee – and you definitely should join us :).

 

Reason 1 – You Already Have It Figured Out.

If you already know all there is to know about brand marketing – and there is nothing you can learn from our amazing list of speakers and topics – then this is definitely NOT the conference for you.

Or, maybe it is – because you could feel really superior here, and such opportunities for ego-boosting are priceless.

Reason 2 – You Like The Status Quo.

At Brand ManageCamp, our motto is “Fresh Thinking Starts Here.” If you are a big fan of the status quo, though, this is probably not going to be your cup of tea.

In fact, if your favorite sayings include “Let’s not rock the boat” and “Because that’s the way we have always done it,” then this conference will drive you bonkers.

Reason 3 – You Don’t Like Being Around Other Smart, Engaged Brand Marketers.

If the thought of being around hundreds of other really smart brand marketers (like these) kind of freaks you out, you should stay away from Brand ManageCamp.

Because, well, we tend to attract the smart, engaged, change agents from a wide range of geographies, industries, categories, and companies. And they will probably want to talk to you over a nice cup of coffee, or meal, or a drink. And that would be awkward.

Reason 4 – You Go To Marketing Conferences To Be Sold To, Not To Learn.

If you like conferences that amount to big vendor fairs, where every session is a veiled sales pitch, then Brand ManageCamp would certainly disappoint. We don’t allow sales pitches from the stage, and all of our speakers are thought leaders with a passion for sharing/teaching.

We also don’t have a ton of sponsors. We keep the number very low – partnering only with a select few companies with something unique to offer.

So, if you are the type of person who longs to chat with the folks who approach you with free samples as you walk the mall, BMC will certainly NOT fit the bill.

Reason 5 – You Are A 3%’er.

Less than 3% of past Brand ManageCamp attendees would not recommend the conference to their colleagues. If you typically find that you hate what most others love, you will probably hate Brand ManageCamp.

Also, if you are the cynical type who loves to scoff at other people’s positive words, you will probably have a blast making fun of the over 700 heartfelt testimonials from past BMC attendees on our Testimonials page.

Reason 6 – You Think FUN is a 4 letter word.

Business is serious, right? If you believe there is no room for laughing or music or amazing food or mind-blowing shows while attending a brand conference, then Brand ManageCamp would just be plain annoying. I mean, it’s in Las Vegas for cripes sake!

While we are obsessive about our content, we also put a ton of effort into making sure the entire experience is an enjoyable one – from the amazing food, to the open-bar cocktail reception, to all the other fantastic entertainment options in Las Vegas.

We want to make sure you don’t only gain the actionable insights you need to build and grow more profitable brands, but that you also have fun while doing it. If the thought of that makes you snarl, you should probably stay away.

Reason 7 – You Hate Sarcasm.

If you believe that sarcasm is the lowest form of humor, then this list has probably made your skin crawl, and you probably have no intention of coming to the best brand marketing conference of the year.

But, maybe that was our plan all along – to turn away all the sarcasm-haters. Maybe you SHOULD attend just to spite us (and, you know, get access to all the great speakers, actionable insights, tools & techniques Brand ManageCamp has to offer).

That would show us.

So, there you have it. The top 7 reasons you SHOULD NOT attend the Brand ManageCamp conference. If you have found them unconvincing, then we hope you DO choose to join us Sept 15-16 in Las Vegas!

And, remember, you can save $300 by registering on or before June 30th. Hope to see you in September!
