Live via YouTube. Hosted by Bluetrain.

Google Advertising, including Google Display Advertising, and Google pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, all fall under the Google Engage for Agencies Program. On Tuesday, March 5, 2013, Bluetrain Inc. and one of its friends,  Adster Creative, are hosting an exclusive glimpse into the future of Google advertising, presented as a “Google Engage Connect” event.

This is a chance to take a look at the world of online advertising, from Google’s point of view. Featuring the top marketing executive for the Americas, as well as the two top representatives from Google’s agency programs, it will be an enjoyable and informative session, with a great combination of Google, agency, and business-organization perspectives.

From Google’s letter to Bluetrain:

  • Google is broadcasting this invitation-only event to partner agencies, live from the Googleplex in Mountain View, California.
  • Speakers include Lisa Gevelber, Google’s VP for Americas Marketing, discussing how businesses like yours can grow in this digital age.
  • We’ll also have some delicious catering, so you won’t leave hungry.
  • We’ll have some giveaways to share with you, too.


This is event is brought to us and sponsored by Google’s Engage for Agencies program. Engage for Agencies is technically Google Advertising’s outreach program for the small-to-medium business (SMB) market. Having said that, some of what would be considered “medium” by global standards, would represent some of the biggest companies or organizations in our market here in Western Canada.

On the agenda: three of Google’s top executives in the Engage for Agencies and Google AdWords programs will talk about the future of online advertising from Google’s point of view. The Speakers and topics include:
