  • High Five Conference

Tuesday, February 28th to Thursday, March 2nd at Sheraton Raleigh Downtown

The idea for High Five was conceived in 2013. For too long, local marketers and creatives needed to seek inspiration in the likes of Austin, San Francisco, and New York. We decided to create a conference that celebrated the talent and vibrancy of the Triangle—right here in the Triangle.

If you consider yourself a marketer and by that, we mean strategist, communicator, designer, creative director, product manager, developer, writer, and everyone in between or on the periphery, this conference is for you. You’ll be surrounded by a few hundred other creative thinkers craving collaboration to make new ideas happen, just like you.
