PSFK Conference Los Angeles : Dropping The Word ‘Marketing’

PSFK Conference Los Angeles : Dropping The Word ‘Marketing’

Here's something we did - and we'd love to get your reaction. We dumped the word 'marketing' from the description of the day. Of course, PSFK Conferences are business events but we felt overtly constrained by the term. The basic structure remains the same: a morning of trends and inspiration and an afternoon of ideas. The thing is, that we felt that, firstly, 'marketing' doesn't really encompass the solutions that people are generating in business today; that 'marketing' comes with all the bad baggage that advertising and promotions has generated (e.g. urban spam); and that 'marketing' isn't accessible to a new generation of creative minds.
