More than just talks — tactics

This isn’t your average marketing conference. We like to get our hands dirty, so we’re diggin’ through the mud to discover strategies and tips from our speakers’ own charismatic career paths.

Why You Should 100% Be There

We’re putting a lid on head-in-the-clouds, inspirational marketing. The Yearly Carnage is where people stop being polite and start getting real. Wait, that’s not right— but our speakers are keeping it real, serving up more than just story time. You’ll learn the freshest marketing tactics from people who live and breathe digital marketing every day.

If you’re tired of hearing from marketing “gurus” and ready to hear from real marketers doing real marketing, then grab your ticket and tell your boss you’re not showing up to the office on October 4th. Heck, maybe your boss will even buy your ticket—employee development, ya dig?

What People are Saying:

The 2018 Yearly Carnage was kick ass. I was so energized and inspired by the end that I wanted to scrap my whole strategy and start fresh. Thanks for helping me see the same-old, same-old in a new light.
You’ll learn more in a few hours from listening to the speakers and networking with your peers and Carney staff than you can in a full month at the office.
In one day, I was able to come away with practical information that I can apply directly to what I do. The Yearly Carnage offered a terrific learning and networking opportunity for a ridiculously low price. 10/10 will be back next year!

Where’s this thing at?


The City of Bridges

Pittsburgh is pretty dang cool. There’s a reason it’s one of the most livable cities in the country. Our restaurant scene is bumpin’. People are nice and yes, we have a lot of bridges. If you haven’t been to the Burgh, now is a great time.

The conference is at the New Hazlett Theater in the North Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
