What Co-Create Means:

The explosion of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) is showing us that the future of marketing is letting a community decide the value of a piece of content. 


This means that as brands, we have the opportunity to lean into the power of co-creation to truly work WITH our communities to feature them as a part of our marketing messages.

Co-creation is all about coming together with like-minded people to create value for both of your audiences in a way that benefits everyone involved: both creators AND both audiences. 

As brands, when we take the time to co-create content, moments, and experiences, it shows that we truly CARE. That is the difference that makes the difference, and it's what makes us memorable, builds relationships, and ends up driving repeat and referral business. 

When + Where It’s Happening: 

Our 10th annual conference will take place on June 15 + 16, 2022 at the UNOH Event Center located at 1450 N. Cable Rd. in Lima, Ohio. (The 25,000 square foot all-purpose event center is handicap accessible and accommodates nursing mothers with a private nursing lounge.)
