About the @MarketPlace Conference

Why did we call this event @MarketPlace? Simple. You can find the very best of what you need all under one roof!

There's nothing magical about Social Media. Really. The truth is that social media is here to stay, so you'd better be sure you're in the game! The @MarketPlace Conference is your connection to the best social media resources.

In keeping with our support of the local community, a portion of the proceeds from @MarketPlace will be donated to the children’s program at Grand River Hospital.
