Top experiential marketing news sites to stay ahead of the curve

Whether you’re seeking inspiration for your next campaign or eager to learn from successful experiential marketing initiatives, knowing where to get accurate and timely information is crucial to staying ahead of the curve.

But there’s a lot of junk out there—and sometimes, you won’t have the time to sift through loads of articles to find the one that best fits your needs.

That’s why we’ve compiled the best sites for experiential marketing news. These websites cover everything from emerging trends to best practices, ensuring that your marketing campaigns are aligned with what’s actually happening in the market today.

1. AdWeek


Adweek is a weekly trade publication that covers all realms of marketing, and its coverage of experiential marketing is some of the best available. The site shares experiential marketing news from industry experts, bringing you helpful insights on the latest trends and campaigns making headlines. For example, during the Super Bowl, AdWeek published an article about Papa Johns’ creative marketing campaign—while the pizza brand didn’t air an ad during the big game, it did deliver a pizza worth $58,000 to two sweepstake winners to commemorate the Superbowl 58.
