MOBE to return with reunion to mark upcoming 2017 conference in Atlanta

The Marketing Opportunities in Business and Entertainment (MOBE) symposium will return as the leading advanced marketing conference and strategic entertainment alliance with a reunion. The event takes place December 8-10, 2016 at the Chicago South Loop Hotel, 11 W. 26th Street. The occasion will include networking, learning and planning for the 2017 Marketing Opportunities symposium in Atlanta, GA.

Launched in 1992, Marketing Opportunities in Business and Entertainment earned the reputation as the premier advanced marketing symposium for creating strategic alliances in entertainment. Countless celebrities and thought leaders have been introduced at MOBE, from Avant, Brandy and Usher to John Legend. MOBE connected African Americans in Technology with the White House to tackle the Digital Divide, spawning business building and economic independence. MOBE generated over $200 million in business deals that were initiated at MOBE.

The MOBE Reunion Committee is comprised of Yvette Moyo, Curtis Symonds, Gwen Kelly, Judy Klein, Earl Jackson, Pat Shields, Keith Hill, Andrew Givens, Clint Evans, Rael Jackson, Ron LeGrand, Sherman Kizart, Melanie Few-Harrison and Sheri Riley.

The reunion begins with the opening reception on Thursday, December 8 at 7 p.m. On Friday, December 9, there will be a full day of meetings, creative building exercises and presentations. Saturday's session will be the 2017 MOBE 25th conference planning meeting.

The conference closes with a reception in collaboration with The Harlem Fine Arts Show, with local groups on hand including MOBE2.0, Jack & Jill, 100 Black Men of Chicago, Rotary Club of the Southeast, and the First Ladies Health Initiative beginning at 6pm.

Registration is $129 and a portion of this fee will be donated to Real Men Charities, Inc. For more information about the conference and tickets, click here or visit MOBE 2016 on Facebook.
