Vocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: VOCS), a leading provider of cloud-based marketing software and consulting services, today announced that actor Adrian Grenier, best known for his starring role in the Emmy-nominated HBO series “Entourage,” will give the closing keynote on day one of its Demand Success 2014 conference. Registration opens today for the conference, which will be held in the Washington, D.C. region on June 5 and 6, 2014.
Grenier will speak about how he engages in a variety of projects that empower opportunities and businesses outside of the traditional acting role. In addition to having an illustrious acting career, he is a new media enthusiast and cofounder of SHFT, a platform that conveys a more sustainable approach to the way people live through film, design, art and food.
Joining Grenier is renowned author and Branding Strategist Laura Ries. An expert on marketing and brand strategy, she is the best-selling author of some of the nation’s most respected branding books, including “The Origin of Brands” and “The Fall of Advertising and the Rise of PR.” Ries will provide Demand Success attendees with a greater comprehension of how marketing and branding can work for them to cut through the noise in the marketplace.
