The StudioNow team had the pleasure of attending and sponsoring the annual ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference last week in San Diego, CA. It was a one-of-a-kind event bringing together over 700 top-tier brand marketing, procurement and finance professionals with key industry stakeholders. Well respected speakers led the charge discussing hot topics ranging from how to better connect to consumers digitally, to the value of transparency in production. Timely topics, engaging debates paired with thoughtful Q&A sessions and a lively dialogue made this year’s ANA AFM Conference an invaluable event to attend.

Though the four-day event has come and gone, we were so inspired by the speakers who illuminated the conference stage that we have compiled some of their most inspiring quotes to share with you.
