Custom Local Market Events give our marketing partners the opportunity to showcase expertise and bolster branding in markets of their choice.

As opposed to national and regional event topics, content for these meetings can be customized to cover issues of local and regional importance to business leaders in the client’s target audience.

Events are suggested as either a breakfast or an evening reception which can include cocktails. Event formats generally open with registration and informal networking, followed by the programming content which opens to Q&A with the audience and then additional networking and refreshments as the event winds down.

Additionally, Inc. will collaborate with the client to extend reach of events into other channels including virtual events, video vignettes, and/or event briefs.

Take a tour of Inc. Conferences and Events

Inc. Events offer a unique opportunity for members of the entrepreneurial community who rarely get to spend time with each other. These leaders spend most of their days with their vendors, their employees or with their clients; but when you put them in a room with each other, the ideas start to flow. Under the surface they are struggling with the same issues — and Inc. Events give them a forum in which to interact, listen and learn from each other, and ultimately foster a sense of community where they can connect, collaborate and support one another.
