NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 22, 2016) - ICMediaDirect, a full-service public relations and reputation management company, will join leading marketing agencies at Content Rising Summit to share techniques about the art and science of brand storytelling. Their team frequent many established marketing conferences and events, including ad:tech, Affiliate Summit, and LeadsCon, where they meet with other thought leaders in marketing to connect, exchange ideas, and discuss the most recent industry trends.

The first Content Rising Summit, otherwise known as The Brand Storytelling Conference, was held at the Westin Boston Waterfront, right in the middle of Boston's seaport and innovation districts. The 2016 event, named Forward, is scheduled at the same location on June 22 - June 23 of this year. Skyword, the creator of the event, is a leading content marketing technology company that has helped to push forward the significance of online content for businesses. Skyword Founder Tom Gerace created the company out of the realization that the marketing world has shifted, and innovative marketers need to collaborate, learn, and share in order to move the world's top brands ahead of their competition.

Speakers at the conference include trendsetters and visionaries such as Michael Brenner of Marketing Insider Group and co-author of 'The Content Formula,' Fulbright Scholar and successful screenwriter Robert McKee, and Victoria Keichinger, who has used content to turn Coldwell Banker into one of the world's leading real estate brands. The theme of this summer's Content Rising Summit is 'fusion,' how the combination of two separate factors can result in something extraordinary. ICMediaDirect is excited to reveal its newest methods that sync with one of the most powerful concepts in creative marketing today. The agency advocates an artful blend of visual media and thought-provoking content to produce stories that have impact and engage potential customers.

"Our clients have been able to reach a broader base with an uplifting message, simply through the quality of the content they project."
