Snapchat is making a splash at New York Advertising Week this year!


Advertising Week is a premier event for both media participants and pioneers to engage with, educate and network with some of the leaders in the industry. All programming will be taking place at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square October 1st - 4th 2018

This year Snapchat leaders will be sounding off on a bevy of topics, ranging from how brands are tailoring their marketing message for the modern woman, to how marketers are creating strategies to capture spend from millennials, and how mobile has become the leading platform for consumers getting their news. We are excited to host and be a part of a wide range of speaking engagements this year and look forward to seeing our customers and partners at the show!

Below highlights sessions our team will be participating in throughout the week!
