5 Ways to Contribute to Marketing AI Institute
Marketing Artificial Intelligence Institute was launched in November 2016 with the mission to make AI approachable and actionable for marketers.
The Institute reaches and influences marketing leaders with 14,000+ website visitors per month (+54% YOY), and 7,500+ newsletter subscribers (+64% YOY).
Our inaugural Marketing AI Conference (MAICON) in July 2019 drew 300+ attendees from 12 countries and featured more than 50 speakers from organizations such as Conversica, Facebook, Grant Thornton, HubSpot, IBM, MIT Technology Review, Publicis Sapient, SoftBank Robotics, The Natori Company and Yext.
Register for MAICON 2020, July 14 - 16. Early bird pricing of $999 ends soon.
It Takes a Community to Create a Movement
Since the Institute's creation, our team has published 500+ articles that teach marketers how to understand, pilot and scale AI. This content has been largely produced by our internal writers.
But, AI is a complex web of issues and opportunities. It requires a diverse set of experiences, insights and points of view in order to tell the full story.
We want to inform the marketers who demand smarter (i.e. AI-powered) technologies to drive efficiency and revenue in their organizations.
At the same time, we want marketers to use AI for good, to always consider the need for personalization without invasion of privacy, and intelligent automation without dehumanization of their stakeholders. More Intelligent. More Human.
And, so, we turn to you, our fast-growing, forward-thinking community of marketers, executives, educators, authors, analysts, speakers and leaders.
If you have knowledge, experiences and opinions that will help enrich our audience’s minds and expand their AI understanding and capabilities, then we want to give you the platform to connect and share with them.
We look forward to working with others in our quest to make marketing more intelligent, and more human. See below for ways to collaborate.

2. Submit to speak at the Marketing AI Conference (MAICON).
We’re looking for authors, entrepreneurs, educators, practitioners and experts who can help make AI approachable and actionable for marketers.
The Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON) is at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, July 14 - 16, 2020. Sessions are generally 45 minutes and will be a mix of solo presentations, fireside chats and panels.
We’re particularly interested in hearing from practitioners who have piloted marketing AI applications within their companies, and are willing to share their journeys.
To be considered as a speaker, please submit your proposal here. The submission deadline is Friday, Dec. 20, 2019.
3. Suggest an industry expert.
Are you an AI expert? Or, do you know someone who has valuable insights and experiences to share with our audience?
We’ve found that one of the best ways to explore topics from a wide range of viewpoints is to ask the experts who are creating and using AI.
To do this, we often turn to our database of AI experts for their opinions on specific topics for use in roundup posts, and as sources in Institute-written articles and research. We also consider these experts for podcast interviews, profile articles and speaking opportunities.
Our experts span a diverse range, but typically include authors, educators, entrepreneurs, executives and marketing practitioners.
Fill out our AI expert database form if you, or someone you know, is a fit.
The form only takes a few minutes to complete, and just asks for basic contact and bio information, and your background with AI. This helps our team match up opportunities with our experts.
4. Submit a vendor spotlight.
One of our goals is to connect our readership with smarter (i.e. AI-powered) technologies. We do this by regularly publishing tech company spotlights on our blog. If you’re interested in your company being considered, fill out this form with the standard questions we ask every Vendor Spotlight participant.
Please note that your submission does not guarantee inclusion in Marketing AI Institute content. We reserve full editorial control over which vendors are featured.
5. Submit a marketing AI case study.
Is your brand doing something interesting with AI in marketing? We’re always seeking examples of Applied AI to be featured in editorial content, on our Marketing AI Show Podcast and at our annual event, MAICON.
To share your story for consideration, please submit the details here. Please DO NOT include confidential information with your submission. All information submitted becomes the property of Marketing AI Institute and can be used editorially by our team.
Contact us with questions.
For questions on the above, please contact the Marketing AI Institute at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be in touch. We look forward to collaborating with you. Please note that due to the volume of submissions we get in all the above categories, we cannot respond to all inquiries. We appreciate your understanding.
