…day one of seven, kicks off on a good note.
This is the most fashion-relevant BC American Marketing Association (BCAMA) event that I have come across. It’s early though – 7:30am at Four Seasons Hotel (791 West Georgia Street) with speakers from Bootlegger, Aritzia and Westcomb. The MC is blogger Craig Long of The Commodified (who is now the assistant editor of MONTECRISTO Magazine). On site registration price is $52.50 for non-BCAMA members, $40 for members and $25 for students. I’ll be there if I can get up early enough….. Click here for details.
