Tim Barnett SpeakerTim Barnett Baltimore Bike Party

What has up to 2000 participants each month, thousands more in Facebook fans, a next-to-zero marketing budget, an unassuming leader with a handful of unpaid supporters, and its only deliberate cause is to "have fun and spread joy?"

It's Baltimore Bike Party! In this Q&A session with founder Tim Barnett, he'll share how he paired his marketing schooling and knowledge of non-traditional media with his connection to the millennial market to start Baltimore Bike Party ...a monthly event where certainly hundreds and often thousands of pedal bike cyclists get together and, well, ride bikes together.

You'll learn how it formed, its cause, what success it's had, the media chosen (and not chosen) to achieve that success, and the not-so-obvious impact it's having on the City of Baltimore (including The Mayor) and its often-times divided citizens and communities.

Attendees of this session will learn how to apply some, most or all of the tactics Tim has used for their respective brands.
