EVENTS

The Rotman Commerce Marketing Association holds various events throughout the year, all specifically designed to bring out the best in you, the student. We are constantly innovating events to ensure that you are exposed to nothing but the best. Every event has a specific purpose, targeting the development of your skills, your network, or challenging you to think big. By staying in constant contact with the student body, the RCMA is able to adapt its events to fit your wants and needs, ultimately maximizing your value at every event and allowing you to unlock your full potential.

Spotlight is a party for marketing superstars. Instead of the traditional approach to conferences, the RCMA wants to be bold and shine the Spotlight on students for a change. This is an opportunity for students to showcase their accomplishments, their aspirations, and their marketing knowledge, in a professional yet engaging atmosphere.

Agencies After Dark

brewing connections

This event is an opportunity for students to connect with industry professionals and actually have a meaningful conversation in an intimate setting that will be conducive to creating a relaxing environment. Targeted more at recruiting and expanding networks; this is not an event to gain technical knowledge or skills. The focus is to connect students with professionals in order to expand their contact base and hopefully provide them with career connections, assisting with their recruitment. Ideally, this event will have a 4:1 student to corporate professional ratio.

Creative Collaboration Challenge

creative collaboration challenge

This event is a case competition for first and second years where students are able to receive guidance from experienced upper year students to work through and solve a marketing problem. This will give students an opportunity to network, increase marketing skills, and exercise teamwork while possibly giving representatives fresh, new ideas that they can take back to their company. Students will also be able to see thought processes used when tackling a marketing case. This event aims to inspire innovative approaches and creative solutions, as well as provide students with a taste of what marketing really is outside of the classroom.
