Event Marketer magazine and leading experiential marketing agency NVE today unveiled 35 Under 35, a new program recognizing the brightest young minds in face-to-face marketing.
The first-ever 35 Under 35 shines a spotlight on the “next great generation of experiential marketers”—the best marketers under the age of 35 that are redefining brand experiences and reinventing the event marketing playbook.
Open exclusively to brand-side marketers in the U.S., the experiential marketing community is invited to nominate all of the industry’s rising stars—colleagues, clients, even themselves. Entry is free and open through March 22. Get more information and enter here.
“It’s amazing to see the industry’s rising stars pushing the discipline of experiential marketing forward,” says Event Marketer business director Jeff Fortmann. “I’m thrilled we’ve created a way to recognize experiential marketing’s next generation.”
The inaugural 35 Under 35 “collective” will receive a year’s worth of recognition and support via special editorial coverage in Event Marketer magazine and eventmarketer.com, connections to a network of brand-side industry mentors and monthly access to top experiential marketing events across the country. The first collective of 35 marketers gets unveiled at an exclusive 35 Under 35 panel and peer-to-peer activities at the Experiential Marketing Summit in San Francisco this May.
“More marketers are beginning to understand the power of experiential marketing,” says NVE ceo Brett Hyman. “I am delighted that NVE and Event Marketer have created a platform that recognizes the new generation of marketers who are reinventing experiential with original and innovative tactics.”
