The annual ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference is one of the ANA’s most dynamic conferences, with a long history and a loyal following. It brings together top client-side marketing procurement and finance professionals with advertising agency chief financial and revenue officers and other key industry stakeholders.

The Advertising Financial Management Conference is the only marketing procurement and advertising financial management event of its kind. The conference provides perspective on delivering greater value to organizations with a focus on efficiencies, cost savings, driving ROI, and more. The ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference provides the forum to discuss the industry’s most important and pressing marketing procurement and agency finance issues to help marketers drive business growth.

This will be one of the ANA’s first in-person events since March 2020! The 2021 ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference is presented by Active International.

Your welfare is important to us. In response to current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the venue has implemented a variety of new protocols to elevate safety and piece-of-mind.

We know that not everyone will be able to travel for this event, so we are also providing a remote participation option.

The Advertising Financial Management Conference is registered as a sponsor of continuing education with both the Institute for Supply Management and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy. At this time, this conference is only permitted to provide CPE via in-person learning. We are working with NASBA to expand the CPE offering to virtual attendees as well. Additional information about earning CPE via virtual attendance will be posted as soon as possible.
