KEEN—for Keeping Entrepreneurs Engaged and Networking—is convening an eclectic and exciting group of top digital tastemakers, leaders, founders and innovators all under one roof from October 24 to 27, 2013 in a three-day B2B and B2C event and expo. This inaugural conference in Nashville welcomes social influencers, journalists, editors, developers, start-ups, small businesses and Fortune 500 brands to come meet, collaborate, and learn about innovative technologies and new platforms in the areas of travel, technology, food and spirits, family and entertainment.

Speakers and special guests will engage their audiences on all levels with talks about targeted advertising, using social for good, Millennial marketing, email campaigns, visual messaging, digital media ethics and much more.
