InfluencerCon has been known for covering dynamic content involving influencers/tastemakers since 2010. Since the global launch, a need to expand and continue the annual experience on a monthly basis was noticed by the founder, Phil McKenzie. “Amplify is our attempt to dig deeper into some of the subjects we broach during InfluencerCon globally. It provides an environment to come together with our growing community and share ideas and build a richer connection. The discussions leading up to the annual conference does just that...amplify these conversations globally in a looser context than a full-blown conference,” McKenzie stated.

Amplify will explore and address various topics leading up to the annual conference that will take place in October 2013. In addition to the monthly series, there are also plans to incorporate Google + sessions as well as producing Future Mark trend reports.
