BrightTALK allows you to create a direct data connection between your BrightTALK events and corresponding Marketo Programs.
When you first load the Marketo Programs accordion, you will see an option to "Map Program Statuses"
The left-hand side displays the statuses that BrightTALK makes available, while the right-hand side allows you to set a corresponding Marketo Program Status.
