John Siracusa, founder of #BankSocial Media Conference ( wishes to extend a big “thank you” to the sponsors of this year’s event, which looks to build on the success of the inaugural event last April. #BankSocial 2017 is taking place in Miami from April 4th and 5th with optional pre & post conference workshops, and early bird registration is still open.

“This growing list of fabulous sponsors proves the growing need for #BankSocial in the credit union and retail banking industry, and sponsorship makes it possible for us to organize a truly one-of-a-kind event,” says Siracusa. “So, I want to say how appreciative I am of Credit Union Times, Aimclear, Social Assurance, Pannos Marketing, Mills Marketing and Level5 — we couldn’t have done this without you.”

“CU Times believes in the power of connecting communication strategies on all platforms and we’re happy to bring it all together for the #BankSocial event. In-person, online and on social media – it’s how we’re all connected every day,” said Michael Ogden, executive editor for CU Times.

“We’re eager to dig into advanced marketing tactics with top banking and financial services pros at #BankSocial 2016,” said Marty Weintraub, founder at Minnesota-based Aimclear. “We’ll show marketers how to layer amazing creative with precise psychographic audience targeting, so they can reach the right audiences then convert prospects through solid strategies and great content.”

“The first year for Bank Social was a phenomenal experience with tremendous speakers and attendees that took ownership in the conference. I’m excited to see the growth and expansion for 2017. This is a conference you don’t want to miss,” said Ben Pankonin, Social Assurance CEO and co-founder.

“We’re excited to be part of #BankSocial 2017! Based on the level of engagement at the #BankSocial inaugural event, we anticipate a great opportunity for collaboration with banking professionals and industry experts alike. #BankSocial is an excellent way for bankers to learn how digital marketing relates to banking and how it can be used to support their business goals,” says Jim Pannos of Pannos Marketing.

“As consumer behavior continues to evolve, so does banking. The integration of digital channels, including social media, and the physical branch are huge components to enabling consumers to make connections that improve their businesses and lives. #BankSocial marries the leaders in all three categories,” says Anthony Burnett, Customer Experience Director at LEVEL5.

“We are so excited to be a part of this conference – for the second year! #BankSocial is truly unique and delivers content and idea sharing opportunities you can’t get anywhere else in the industry.” – Sarah Bacehowski – President, Mills Marketing
