LA2M is a weekly luncheon that allows business owners, marketers, and anyone else that is interested in digital marketing to meet for free (or $10 if you choose to eat) and listen to speakers on a variety of topics. The luncheons are held every on Wednesdays and run from 11:45 am – 1:00 pm at Conor O’Neill’s Celtic Room, located at 318 South Main Street in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The presentations last 30 minutes and allow extra minutes afterwards that can be used for questions and introductions.
Wednesday, September 8th, launched the first luncheon of the LA2M Fall series with speaker Meaghan McCann. She discussed advertising on Facebook which fits in well with the Fall 2010 topic series: Internet Marketing.
On October 20 there will be a special speaker who will be presenting about his or her experience from the World Cup South Africa. Be sure to check back to find out who it is.
Derek Mehraban, Founder of LA2M and CEO of Ingenex, a digital marketing firm located in Ann Arbor, said, “Internet marketing strategy is crucial to marketers and business owners. The demand for digital is growing exponentially and this Fall, LA2M will challenge Ann Arbor to think digitally and utilize the online space to connect with customers.”
Keeping in mind what Derek said, it is easy to see that the topics being presented will be very useful in challenging Ann Arbor to think digitally.
