For all you marketing folks in the D.C.-area that also happen to be Mad Men fans, I have some pretty amazing news: Elisabeth Moss (the actress who plays Peggy Olson in Mad Men) has been announced as the featured keynote speaker at Vocus’ Demand Success 2013 marketing conference at the National Harbor, MD.
Vocus is one of the D.C. region’s most iconic technology companies, becoming one of the biggest marketing cloud providers in the country over the past few years. They provide a variety of marketing tools that span across a plethora of channels including social, search, email, and digital media. Their Demand Success 2013 conference will bring together some of the biggest PR and marketing experts in the country for two days as they discuss the latest in skills, tools, strategies, and training across a variety of industries with conference attendees.
And Peggy Olson will be there! Well, at least the actress who portrays her, which is pretty much ‘as cool’ or even better. Moss’ keynote will include a discussion on her role as Peggy Olson on the show, particularly how quickly her character has become the paragon of feminism in marketing which has become a woman-dominated industry. Vocus Senior Vice President of Products, You Mon Tsang, commented on the addition of Moss to the conference, saying:
We welcome Elisabeth Moss to Demand Success 2013. Her character Peggy Olson symbolizes the forerunner to the modern female marketer, and as such fought battles to make today’s professional opportunities available to women. In an era with women like Arianna Huffington and Sheryl Sandberg leading our sector, we could not think of a more ideal and fun second keynote experience.
As if having Moss’ keynote speech wasn’t enough to blow your mind, Huffington Post’s Arianna Huffington will be the second primary keynote speaker at the event which pretty much makes this the must-attend marketing conference in the D.C. region.
