Promax|BDA, the association for entertainment industry marketing, promotion and design professionals, is moving its U.S. conference from New York to Los Angeles next year.
At the conclusion of its 54th annual gathering in New York Thursday night, Promax BDA President Jonathan Block-Verk announced that after having taken place in New York for six years, the three-day event will move to the L.A. LIVE venue next June.
“Marketers are always looking for a new source of inspiration and a fresh perspective, so we are looking forward to seeing everyone in Los Angeles next year,” Block-Verk said in a statement.
The conference closed with the Promax|BDA Promotion and Marketing Awards ceremony hosted by comedian Bob Saget. Showtime and FX were among the evening’s big winners, with 25 and 14 awards respectively.
