Hundreds of marketing elite will funnel into the Institute of Contemporary Arts on Monday, January 13th to hear from industry luminaries on the revolutionary brands, services and innovations conceived in the city of Boston.

The can’t miss occasion in question is The Ad Club’s EDGE Conference, a half-day event designed to showcase cutting-edge innovators in the marketing and ad sectors digging into what’s happening, what’s new and what’s next in the continuously changing world of marketing.

While we will be hearing from a dozen of excellent keynote speakers when they take the mike, other thought leaders, respected and renowned for their contributions to Boston’s marketing innovations, will also likely be adding to the conversation socially, sending out 140-character messages over the airwaves to capture the experience.

Whether a client held you up or you just couldn’t make it, follow these Twitter accounts and search for the hashtag #BrandedinBoston to get a sense of the atmosphere at this year’s 2014 EDGE Conference and continue to glean marketing insights once the event comes to close.
