Ambitious events for B2B marketers with high expectations

People work hard in New York. Marketers work hard in New York. So it’s only fair we work just as hard to make our events better. The result is highly engaged audiences of many hundreds of top B2B marketers – any one of whom can give you an event ROI to die for. For more information, email Cathy Smith, Executive Director.

2019 Program Overview


The Intersections Event Series brings together leading CMOs, their C-Suite colleagues, and marketing thought leaders for thought-provoking presentations and compelling fireside chats on the topics that are essential to marketing innovation and impact ‒ and will shape the business landscape for years to come.

Board Advisors ‘Future of You’ Career Series

The ‘Future of You’ Career Series from our Board Advisors is designed to answer the questions that keep the next-gen leaders up at night, and provide information and resources to help them do their jobs better and advance their careers.

Global ACE Awards

The best work in B2B makes it here, or it doesn’t make it anywhere. For nearly 40 years, the Global ACE Awards competition – one of the long-standing hallmarks of ANA Business Marketing NYC – has recognized the best-of-the-best in B2B creative from across the globe, along with the talented people who create it.

Fall Regional Conference

The Fall Regional Conference is our bellwether content program. It attracts an audience of senior leaders and decision makers from the brand, agency and media communities through provocative programming and B2B thought leadership. In 2018, the focus was on “Leadership Journeys: A Conversation with Women who are Reinventing Marketing and Success.” A powerful and renowned roster of speakers explored how women lead from the front lines to transform marketing—and the world.
