ATLANTA, GA | 22 OCT 2022


See you in the fall!

Mini-Conference Coming in:



BrandTech Day is THE entrepreneurial mini-conference of the year - connecting Atlanta's (and some of the world's!!) savviest marketers, tech experts, businesses and entrepreneurs so they can easily build the strategies, relationships and expertise they need to rapidly accelerate business growth. This event brings innovative branding and technology experts together on 22 October 2022 for a one-day journey of providing real, practical and affordable help to Atlanta's business owners and beyond.


We will share our 2022 Speakers here once released, but in the meantime, you can check out our past speakers below:

Shellye Archambeau - BrandTech Day Keynote Speaker

Shellye Archambeau | San Francisco Bay Area

One of high tech's first female African-American CEOs, BrandTech Day Keynote Speaker Shellye Archambeau is a recognized global business leader whose name frequently appears in Forbes, the New York Times, Business Insider and more. Shellye's on the board of Fortune 500 Verizon and Nordstrom as well. While many know of Archambeau's tremendous accomplishments as a trailblazing female executive pioneer, few know the backstory of the shy, gangly black girl who set her sights on becoming a CEO at sixteen years old. Shellye turned that ambition into a practical and focused action plan to build massive success. Her message is clear: no matter who you are or where you come from, you have the right to live the life you want.

BrandTech Day VIP Attendees will receive a signed copy of Shellye's new book "Unapologetically Ambitious" - to be released just days before BrandTech Day kicks off! VIP'ers also get an exclusive invitation to a fireside chat with the keynote.

BrandTech Day Goes Global?!

Since we're virtual this year, we were wondering: could we get someone from every state at BrandTech? Could we get someone from every continent?! Help us! Who do you know in Mississippi, Kansas or the UK? This is gonna be fun...

Map of BrandTech Day Attendees (as of 29 Sept 2020)

Overall, the presenters were top notch, insightful, informative, professional and relatable. I enjoyed each of the workshops immensely!
