Build a Better Agency Summit


We are excited that you’re going to be with us for the first annual Build A Better Agency Summit. But we’re betting you have a question or two. We’ve tried to guess what they are below. Hopefully we hit the mark but if not — fire away with your questions by emailing us here.

What about the stinking virus, Drew?
Fortunately, August is a long ways away and we’re hopeful that things will be back to “normal” by then.  But, whatever the situation, we’ve got it covered. We have enough space reserved that we’ll be able to safely social distance and the hotel has earned the highest safety ratings during the heat of the crisis so we know their cleaning practices are top notch.

We’re on top of it and wouldn’t think of putting anyone at risk.

Group Discount info
We like it when you bring your crew — so of course we offer group discounts. If you are an AMI member, you can take BOTH the group discount and the AMI discount when you bring more than one team member! Our registration page has all the details!

Payment types accepted
We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. If you need other arrangements, please email us.

Food and Beverage included
No one has ever gone hungry at an AMI event. So rest assured — we’ve got you covered. There will be a continental breakfast and lunch on Tuesday and Wednesday are included. And snacks. We always have snacks!

When you register you’ll be invited to share any food allergies or special requirements you have. We’ll do our very best to take care of you!

Networking Opportunities
You’re agency people so we don’t really worry about you sitting in a corner, not meeting anyone new! But the entire conference is built to help you connect with old friends and new! On top of that, we’re planning a really fun night out AMI-style for Tuesday, August 10th! Think darts and drinks. What could go wrong?

Substitution Policy
Can’t join us? We’re bummed to miss you this year but we know how agency life is. You’re able to send a substitute in your place. Please fill out our substitution form to begin that process.

Dress Code
This is an AMI event so you know that anything from shorts and a t-shirt to business casual are welcome! If you wear a tie, we’re going to be pretty sure you’re in the wrong place. But short of that, anything but bathing suits and robes are suitable! We also recommend bringing a light jacket or sweater as temperatures inside can vary depending on your preference.
