The IMPACT 22 conference, hosted by the Internet Marketing Association, was designed to spark inspiration and conversation between the most significant marketing minds of our time. This year, it featured a slew of in-person and virtual speakers – including Palmer Luckey, founder of Anduril who spoke about “Metaverse not working, nuclear warfare and speaking up when attacked”.

The event benefited four non-profit organizations, including:

  • The Literacy Project: an organization that addresses illiteracy at its earliest stage by teaching at-risk second-graders how to read.
  • California State Guard Foundation: an organization dedicated to supporting a volunteer emergency response force protecting California and its citizens from wildfires, earthquakes, floods, pandemics, civil unrest, and other disasters, both natural and man-made.
  • Operation Underground Railroad: a nonprofit organization involved in the rescue of human trafficking and sex trafficking victims, with a special focus on children, and a wider goal of eliminating sex trafficking worldwide.
  • Orange County United Way, Men of the Breakfast: a powerful philanthropic group, providing members with exclusive access to unique experiences in Orange County.

All were invited to attend the conference virtually and learn about a variety of cutting-edge leadership and marketing topics, developed by the over 80 distinguished board members that represent the IMA.
