2023 AMA Marketing and Public Policy Conference

Arlington, VA

Policy and Change: The Role of Marketing and Public Policy in a Securing a Sustainable Future

Research at the intersection of marketing and public policy aims to uncover and explore the actions of consumers, policymakers and businesses that—purposefully or unintentionally—promote or hinder progress towards creating a sustainable future. The 2023 AMA Marketing and Public Policy Conference will interpret sustainability broadly to encompass consumer issues related to the health and well-being of people, the planet, businesses and the entities that work to protect them. The conference will focus on the following topics:

  • Health, Well-being and Consumer Protection
  • Protecting Vulnerable Consumers
  • Reducing Structural Disparities and Discrimination
  • Anti-Trust and Competition Policy 
  • Sustainably and Environmental Security
  • Economic Security and Financial Well-Being 
  • Privacy and Autonomy 
  • Politics and Political Activism

Proof of vaccination and negative tests will be checked on-site at the registration desk. AMA also encourages you to wear a mask in the event space.

If you choose to show a negative test result, any CDC or WHO recognized form of COVID test is acceptable (e.g. PCR or antigen, lab or self-test). The time of the test should be within 48 hours of when evidence of the test result is presented for entry to the event.
