The Smart Marketers Tour 2012 kicked off last night at the Seattle Art Museum.

Underneath the twinkling lights of an installation piece by Cai Guo-Qiang, smart marketers from around the United States gathered to swap stories, share marketing smarts, and get an inside look at what it takes to record a Marketing Smarts podcast.

Putting together such an evening is a lot of work---but a lot of fun, too. Want a glimpse of what it's like to put on a Smart Marketers road show?

Here's a quick, fun video of the MarketingProfs team preparing for our first Smart Marketers Tour show.
