Registration is FREE, Space is Limited!

Typically held in Cincinnati, Ohio, where brand management was born, Brandemonium will return to a fully virtual format for the second year due to ongoing government mandates. Registration for 2021 is free thanks to the generous support from Scripps, Cintas, and CVG. Space is limited, so register early to secure a virtual slot.

A Brandemonium 2021 registration includes the following:

  • Access to all conference keynotes and sessions (Oct 6-7).
  • Access to virtual networking – Brandemonium matches attendees for several minutes at a time to simulate the experience of face-to-face networking.

Brandemonium 2021 will focus on looking to the future following a topsy-turvy 2020 and 2021. “The essence of the conference is still brand agility,” said Brandemonium Co-Founder Bill Donabedian. “After the last sixteen months, brands have to adapt faster than ever before. We’ve curated some great leaders in the marketing and branding world to talk about what the future holds.”
