Because Joe Knows Marketing

DOYO Live digital marketing and interactive design conference are coming back in 2017, for our second consecutive event. Last year our conference was headlined by Joe Pulizzi, Founder of Content Marketing World in Cleveland, Ohio and a Top 50-Influncer in the world of marketing today according to Forbes, and one of the most recognized, most well-respected voices in marketing today. This is what Joe had to say about last year’s event:

DOYO Live 2016 – Keynote Speaker Joe Pulizzi, Founder of Content Marketing Institute & Content Marketing World.

“Very impressive what is going on in Youngstown at DOYO Live. The venue, lineup and event were a first class operation. It is great to see a regional marketing show follow the lead of the Content, Inc. model and provide an event that’s helping to revitalize the area. There was a solid group of speakers and I look for this event to continue to grow and inspire marketing professionals in content marketing strategy!” – Joe Pulizzi, CMWorld and Content Marketing Institute.

Joe’s presence at DOYO Live in 2016, immediately validated DOYO Live as an event! This year we have more depth across all of our speakers.

More than 60-people submitted to get in to be a breakout session leader, and we ended up accepting 18. There will be over 20+ hours of content presented at DOYO Live in 2017.

Depth of Talent + Value

Several of our breakout session leaders, including our keynote, have presented at
PubCon (which is the longest standing digital marketing conference in the country),
HubSpot’s Inbound 17 (20,000 attend),
Marketo Summit,
CMWorld and the Mayo Clinic Social Media Summit. These national marketing conferences marketing conferences on average cost $1,500 to attend, not counting time out of work and travel. DOYO Live provides our attendees with an opportunity to hear the same level of talent, at an exceptional value that is a fraction of the cost of attending a national conference, not to mention it’s regional so there’s really just one day out of the office.
