The relationship between marketing agencies and their clients has always been notoriously disconnected. Marketers are known as masters of mass communication, yet ironically, many are amateurs when it comes to communicating with one another. So for this Valentine's event, AgencySparks aimed to address some of the common issues marketers face on both sides of the industry. Read the full event recap here.

Client-side marketers and agency-side marketers filed into the Terry Executive Education Center in Buckhead, Atlanta. The format was simple: eight specialist marketing agencies had a chance to present for five minutes, with up to five minutes of questions afterwards. Read the full recap here.
