The Marketing Arm on Tuesday concluded The Influencer Continuum, an invitation-only summit designed to maximize the evolving relationship and means of impacting a brand’s audience through the utilization of influencers.

The Influencer Continuum united over 250 attendees, from micro to A-list influencers, marketing leaders from over 35 brands, and 15+ technology and media partners, platforms and publishers for three days of discovery and collaboration.

“We recognized a need to provide an environment, and the right conditions, for the trust and magic that can only happen when thought leaders and industry experts exchange ideas face-to-face,” said Ray Clark, founder and CEO of The Marketing Arm. “The fact that we accomplished in three days what normally takes brands over 6 months was beyond impressive.”

The program kicked off Sunday with fireside chats starring model and media entrepreneur Tyra Banks, and the groundbreaking writer/producer Kenya Barris of Black-ish and Girls Trip. On Monday panelists included among others: content creators Liza Koshy, Jay Shetty, Anna Akana, Tyler Oakley, and Matt Bellassai; Fox Sports’ Charissa Thompson, former NHL player Brooks Laich, and music producer Young Guru. Tuesday’s keynote speakers were author Jeremy Heimans, an expert on movements and activism, and Melissa Lavigne-Delville, an authority on Gen Z. All were sharing their intimate knowledge on how brands can best identify and activate their audiences. Musicians Bryce Vine and Rapsody got the crowd on their feet in the evenings.

“It’s been awesome learning, growing, sharing. It’s just an amazing environment to meet people and expand conversations,” dancer and TV personality Derek Hough said between meetings with brand executives.
