An Invitation-Only Event Featuring Compelling New Ideas in Marketing

BKV is hosting the Fast-Track Summit on May 10th at the new Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The event will feature a variety of distinguished speakers and thought leaders (details coming soon). It will be a rare chance for a select group of 100 senior marketing executives to share experiences and challenges in an intimate, private environment.

You can expect a fascinating and pragmatic dialogue about how top-tier marketers deliver performance and maximize ROI in an increasingly fragmented media landscape.

 

And yes, you’ll get to go out on the track in a Porsche.

Porsche Driving Experience

A professional driver will take everyone who is interested out for a couple of laps on the Porsche Experience Center’s highly technical track where you’ll experience the thrill of high-speed performance. If you’re not quite ready for the real thing, take a spin in one of the amazing driving simulators. Either way, you’re in for a treat.

 

Best of all, BKV’s Fast-Track Summit 2017 is Free!

We’re pleased to offer this complimentary event to our clients. Tuesday, May 9th will be a travel day for out-of-towners. It will also be a time to meet with your BKV account team at our office, if you like. On Wednesday, May 10th, the Summit’s program will start early and conclude by 3:30pm to make it easy for those who traveled to catch their flights. It’s an easy drive, as the Porsche complex is literally adjacent to the Atlanta airport, right off I85.

We hope you’ll join us for this exclusive event.

The Westin Atlanta

Out of town travelers will find the Porsche complex literally right next to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta airport.  We recommend flying in on Tuesday, May 9th and flying out late afternoon on May 10th. We’ve reserved a block of rooms at The Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel. To make reservations, call 888-627-7211 and ask for the BKV rate. In-town attendees can take I75 to One Porsche Drive, Atlanta, GA 30354.
