Marketing and Business Leadership Day

Learn from real world professionals!

This educational event includes a one-hour presentation led by Six Flags Great America's director of marketing about the nuts and bolts of how Great America markets its new attractions each season. This presentation gives you a behind-the-scenes look how and who we market to and how a commercial is created. Social media and digital advertising is bigger than ever and will be explored to show how all aspects of marketing are truly integrated.

This presentation begins at 11 a.m. in the Grand Music Hall. After, students are free to enjoy world-class rides and attractions for the remainder of the day.

Create-your-own-commercial contest

Want your students to get the most out of their Marketing and Business Leadership day? Have your students participate in the create-your-own -commercial contest! Students will be provided with b-roll footage of the park and asked to make a short commercial.  Cash prizes and park skip-the-ride-line passes are awarded and the winning commercials are played during the presentation. Now it's your turn to produce the best advertisement and really show your skills and creativity. All submissions are due by April 12.
