Club CMO and Entertainment Marketing Agency FlyteVu Join Forces to Entertain, Educate and Enlighten Top Marketers About the Power of Pop Culture to Audiences

First-ever collaboration for Club CMO will introduce members to exclusive experiences with the most influential forces in pop culture at today’s most sought-after moments

Nashville, April 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FlyteVu, a full-service entertainment marketing agency, and Club CMO, an exclusive community of over 1,500 CMOs across 30 cities around the world, today announced a new partnership bringing members exclusive experiences, first-look opportunities and direct connections with the most influential forces in pop culture.

“Offering meaningful opportunities for our members to explore and experience the power of brand marketing firsthand is a key element of our mission,” says Nerissa Sardi, Club CMO Executive Director. “We aim to provide opportunities to expose them to new, inspiring ideas they can bring back to their own organizations. Partnering with FlyteVu enables our global community to gain that exposure to innovative experiences and influencer marketing opportunities from those at the leading edge.”

In 2024, advertisers will spend $5.89 billion on influencer marketing, a 14.7% increase YoY, according to EMARKETER’s July 2023 forecast, which excludes paid media. U.S. influencer marketing spend grew more than three times faster than social ad spending in 2023, and it will remain ahead through 2025, according to a July 2023 EMARKETER forecast. CMOs play a key role in this spend decision and must be up to speed on its value.
