Dragon*Con has grown from a small, niche gathering to a major annual attraction in Atlanta, drawing devoted sci fi fans and mainstream families alike.  The convention runs thousands of hours of programming for fans of science fiction, fantasy, comic books and other elements of fan culture.

Attendees will hear how this largely volunteer organization has remained authentic to its core audience while appealing to a broader base of sponsors, media and parade and event attendees.

This luncheon will be a deep dive into how Dragon*Con ensures consistency of message across all platforms.

Prior to the luncheon, there will be a morning seminar on reaching "digitally disconnected" employees.

Email has become the go-to tool for communicating internally, but how can you target colleagues who don't have a company email address?  How do you make sure all employees representing your brand or organization are getting the right messages?

Reaching the "digitally disconnected" takes creativity, persistence and a variety of media, both online and offline.

Our expert panel shares success stories that will help you reach the digitally disconnected in a manner that resonates with them.
