About the Conference

Where marketing and creative meet

The idea for High Five was conceived in 2013.  For too long, local marketers and creatives needed to seek inspiration in the likes of Austin, San Francisco and New York. We decided to create a conference that celebrated the talent and vibrancy of the Triangle.

Who should attend High Five on 2/25 + 2/26?

If you consider yourself a marketer, and by that we mean strategist, communicator, designer, creative director, product manager, developer, writer, and everyone in between or on the periphery, this conference is for you.

You’ll be surrounded by a few hundred other creative thinkers craving collaboration to make new ideas happen, just like you.

What can I expect to learn?

February 27, 2014-15At High Five, learn about teamwork, partnership and collaboration in new and unexpected ways to truly achieve marketing and creativity symbiosis:

  • Enhance your knowledge of marketing and creative strategies
  • Gain real, actionable and prescriptive insights to apply to your work challenges
  • Collaborate and innovate in ways that break down functional silos
  • Reverse roles to truly understand and appreciate each other’s processes

The conference has four optional 1/2 day workshops, five strong keynotes and 20 breakout sessions. Click here for an agenda at a glance.
