Ahead of the Curve: The 2023 Interactive Strategies Conference

August 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT

$199.00 – $299.00


The Interactive Strategies Conference is the leading strategic marketing event in the Greater Houston area, initially hosted by HIMA, and now passed on to the Houston Business Marketing Alliance (HBMA). The HBMA is excited and honored to continue the legacy of the conference by empowering marketers to continue learning and growing in their profession.


This year’s theme, Ahead of the Curve, focuses on the concept of adopting new technologies and trends without losing the ones that have proven successful. If you’re not ahead of the curve, it’s easy to get lost in the wake of the wave. Get ready to discuss it all!


The annual one-day conference consists of a double-track, 16-speaker series, stacked with some of the nation’s top experts in digital marketing, tech strategy, content ideation, and interactive communication.


With 2 keynotes, 2 panel discussions, and 8 other speakers, we invite you to join us also for a networking breakfast, lunch, and happy hour.


Within one day, IS Conference attendees are taken through emerging trends, insider best practices, and applicable tools and processes to transform how we, as marketers, provide results. This year’s speakers were hand selected to inspire strategic thinking, creativity, results, and inspiration.


From corporate leaders and teams to agencies and solopreneurs, Houston area marketers and beyond will rally together this August to elevate the way we do business, serve our clients and ultimately improve the quality of life for end consumers, across nearly every industry.

Join us on Wednesday, August 30, 2023, to get ahead of the curve.
