CLIC 2018:
Innovation Meets Experience
October 3-4, 2018
Atlanta, Georgia

Join us for 1 1/2 days of brainstorming and networking with senior marketing revolutionaries who have made things CLIC (CMOs Leading Innovation Conference).

Customer experience mastery—not Martech nor AI—is the new norm for high performing CMOs. Even the most seasoned marketing leaders will need to adjust marketing plans, promotions, and pricing strategies to exceed customer expectations.

These sessions will provide you with fresh new strategies to:

  • Rapidly align your customer experience and marketing initiatives
  • Overcome C-suite isolation
  • Optimize marketing ROI on key customer initiatives
  • Spend more time innovating and less time firefighting
  • Marshal leadership resources from diverse backgrounds.

This CMO conference is not your typical gathering in a hotel conference room for 1 ½ days. It’s an immersive field trip. We will visit organizations that have developed the “secret sauce” for blending marketing innovation with unforgettable customer experiences: Nanolumens and Atlanta United Football Club.

Lisa Nirell, founder of CLIC ’18, will lead several guided discussions and debriefs. These will help you apply what you learned, then propel your marketing innovation forward quickly.


This year’s conference happens October 3-4 at the Sheraton Suites Galleria - Atlanta. This is our home base for CLIC ’18. We have secured a private shuttle service for our field trips.

The Sheraton Suites Galleria is located just 30 minutes from Atlanta Hartsfield Airport. It’s the perfect setting to network, reflect, and collaborate with senior marketers.
