Marketing Opportunities in Business and Entertainment (MOBE) symposium
will return as the leading advanced marketing conference and strategic
entertainment alliance with a reunion. The event takes place December
8-10, 2016 at the Chicago South Loop Hotel, 11 W. 26th Street. The
occasion will include networking, learning and planning for the 2017

Launched in 1992, Marketing Opportunities in Business and Entertainment
earned the reputation as the premier advanced marketing symposium for
creating strategic alliances in entertainment. Countless celebrities and
thought leaders have been introduced at MOBE, from Avant, Brandy and
Usher to John Legend. MOBE connected African Americans in Technology
with the White House to tackle the Digital Divide, spawning business
building and economic independence. MOBE generated over $200 million in
business deals that were initiated at MOBE.
The MOBE Reunion Committee is comprised of Yvette Moyo, Curtis Symonds,
Gwen Kelly, Judy Klein, Earl Jackson, Pat Shields, Keith Hill, Andrew
Givens, Clint Evans, Rael Jackson, Ron LeGrand, Sherman Kizart, Melanie
Few-Harrison and Sheri Riley.
The reunion begins with the opening reception on Thursday, December 8 at
7 p.m. On Friday, December 9, there will be a full day of meetings,
creative building exercises and presentations. Saturday’s session will
be the 2017 MOBE 25th conference planning meeting.
The conference closes with a reception in collaboration with The Harlem
Fine Arts Show, with local groups on hand including MOBE2.0, Jack &
Jill, 100 Black Men of Chicago, Rotary Club of the Southeast, and the
First Ladies Health Initiative beginning at 6pm.
