Facebook VP Carolyn Everson will talk marketing strategy at IGNITION 2015

For a social network that started out thinking ads weren’t cool, Facebook has come a long way in connecting users to brands and products.

At this year’s IGNITION: Future of Digital event in New York City, Carolyn Everson, Facebook’s VP of global marketing solutions — a bona fide brand in her own right — will sit down with Business Insider’s Nicholas Carlson to discuss why there’s so much to “like” in the world of marketing these days.

Everson, who is frequently included on industry “best” lists and features including AdWeek’s AdWeek 50, Advertising Age’s Woman to Watch, and Fortune’s 40 Under 40, leads the company’s relationships with top marketers and agencies. Digital marketers and agencies looking to stay ahead of the curve won’t want to sit this one out.

At IGNITION, you’ll rub shoulders with a crowd of 750+ senior executives as you glean valuable insights from Everson and a host of others innovating in the worlds of media, tech, and marketing.
