ATLANTA, GA, April 25, 2018— The Atlanta Chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) announced today the launch of its new white paper, Storytelling 2020: What You Need to Know About Storytelling in Marketing. Produced by members of AMA Atlanta’s Executive Advisory Board, the paper explores the past, present and future of brand storytelling.

“Our goal is to elevate the field of marketing by producing thought leadership that both educates and inspires informed action,” said Jana Ferguson, President of AMA Atlanta and Chief Client Officer at DRUM Agency.

Despite the increasingly fragmented media landscape, consumers continue to expect seamless, personalized experiences. Storytelling 2020 gives marketers the tools they need to foster engagement in ways that inspire customers to act.

“To be memorable, there is a growing need for relevance in brand storytelling,” said Troy Brown, SVP, Digital, Social and Mobile at MSL Atlanta. “It’s important that we, as marketers, continue to share key insights and foster growth in our communities.”

AMA Atlanta will host a panel luncheon on Wednesday, May 16th from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Maggiano’s Buckhead to further explore the paper. The luncheon will feature guest moderator, Moira Vetter, Founder and CEO of Modo Modo Agency and panelists from AMA Atlanta’s Executive Advisory Board: Georgia-Pacific, Georgia State University, DRUM Agency, Highwire, HoneyBaked Ham, Dragon Army, Dagger, Heirloomed and United Way.

Tickets to the luncheon can be purchased at AMA Atlanta’s Eventbrite page through May 11th.

The Storytelling 2020 white paper is available for download.
