The iMedia Brand Summit kicked off yesterday with an incredible reception. Located on the shores of the Pacific Ocean at the beautiful Loews Coronado Bay Resort, this opening dinner captured the amazing seaside atmosphere of the surrounding community. The theme of this fall's Brand Summit is "Brands as content creators." It promises to be an eye opening and insightful three days on how brands can best approach content marketing and native advertising. Given the start of the event, I'd say they are off to an awesome start.
Here are just some of the photos from the welcome reception from yesterday's seaside themed dinner buffet.
The main attraction: a seafood platter the size of a truck tire, steaming with shrimp, scallops, sausage, and grilled fish.
The Loews Coronado Bay Resort is one of the most beautiful places in San Diego.
