Below is the result of a roundtable I participated in on June 21st from the mothership of all things #sportsbiz: The SportsBusiness Journal HQ in Charlotte, North Carolina. SBJ Editor-in-Chief Abe Madkour moderated a 90-minute discussion with seven marketers from across the US to discuss trends in event and experiential marketing, how social and digital have changed their approach, and the mistakes they still see brands and sports properties making.

Agency executives on the front lines debate how brands should take risk, create and capitalize on content, and why millennials “value experience more than they do a possession.”

With millennials top of mind among brands and sports properties, agencies are being tasked to create innovative strategies to reach this finicky demo through event and experiential marketing.

We’re proud to announce that MKTG INC made Event Marketer’s It List of the top 100 event agencies! In the words of Event Marketer:

This year, the Top 100 event agencies collectively represent the best of what this industry has become. The conceptual work is stellar. The strategic expertise is bar none. The digital savvy is exceptional. It’s our strongest list to date, and, just as rigorous and thorough as it was the year we started it—this It List is your bankable guide to the veteran shops and rookie agencies that are leading event marketing today. Of course, making the final picks for each year’s list is no easy task. And this year we had more agencies apply than ever before. Inevitably, a few that once made the list will find that as their businesses have evolved, so too has our need to shine a spotlight on just those shops that are delivering the most experiential expertise.

It’s the most competitive agency community in the industry’s history to be sure. But it’s also one of the most exciting times for brand marketers, who have access to more talent, experience and specializations than ever. We congratulate all of the agencies selected for this year’s It List, and present to you the Top 100 Event Agencies of 2015.
