Stephanie Bogus PresenterAnyone with a computer can create content. This point is driven home – like a nail to our brains – every time we log on to the internet.


Sure a lot of what we see is creative and entertaining, but once you live in a world where messaging surrounds you, how is anything supposed to stick?


This is a pain point for artists and marketers alike, which is why we’re seeing these opposing forces team up for brands.


For both marketers and artists, this relationship often leads to dollar signs. However, the artist is left with an inner battle,


“Am I a marketer, or am I an artist?”


“Is there a difference?”


“Do I care anymore?”


In this panel we ask artists, musicians and marketing leaders to define the line between marketer and artist.


If there is one.




Brad Bogus PresenterThis is the story of Adalia Rose, a 5-year-old girl with Progeria (a rare aging disease). Her mother started a Facebook page for her to interact with friends. Overnight, thousands started following her. Within a month, it was over 2 million with a reach over 20 million.


The fame brought out a slew of people making fun of her, accusing the family of using her for monetary gain, death threats and more. All the family could do was focus on the negativity, which exacerbated the issue.


This presentation will address how to handle the train of unexpected fame, and the accompanying negativity. We converted that wave of negative PR into something that helped the family’s cause; something that served a greater good. We will discuss the specific plans we executed, and how we used certain tools and methods to create a groundswell of positive response that crushed the negativity.


Haters and trolls will inevitably come out of the woodwork to assault new-found popularity. So what do you do?
