Youngstown, OH – DOYO Live Digital Marketing + Interactive Design Conference Presented by iSynergy in Youngstown, Ohiois proud to announce Joe Pulizzi as the 2019 keynote speaker.
DOYO Live’s 2019 keynote speaker will be Joe Pulizzi, founder of the Content Marketing Institute and producer of Content Marketing World in Cleveland, Ohio, the largest content marketing event in the world. Pulizzi is no stranger to Youngstown, having been keynote speaker during the first DOYO Live conference.

More than four years ago, conference founder, Dennis Schiraldi thought he had a pretty good idea to host a marketing conference in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio.
“I was coming home from speaking at a marketing conference in Rochester, Minn.,” says Schiraldi. “After a really long day of traveling, being away from my family and realizing the amenities we had here in Youngstown, Ohio, it was just enough motivation to say, ‘I believe we can do this in Youngstown.’”
For that first conference, the idea was to attract 150 people and 220 attended. Since then, the conference has taken off, with more than 800 participants in the first three years. In 2019, DOYO Live will return bigger, stronger, and with a new venue, in addition to new speakers, workshops, and sponsors.

DOYO Live will be held at the historic Youngstown landmark, Stambaugh Auditorium on Thursday, October 17 and Friday, October 18, 2019.

Schiraldi lives by three goals for everyone that attends DOYO Live.
“First, have an amazing experience; second, learn something that can be implemented into your business that day; and third, make a meaningful connection with someone for either a client, job, or peer.”
