The 2020 presidential primary campaigns invested and relied on digital in a way we’ve never seen. The innovation required to breakthrough the noise, gain traction, and turn moments into boons for campaigns was remarkable. In this panel, digital innovators from several 2020 presidential campaigns will discuss their digital wins and share moments that helped shape their campaigns. Attendees will gain ideas they can take back to their own organizations to help bolster progressive causes.
