Why and How Attend Marketing Conferences?

Attending marketing conferences should be on the to-do list of every marketer, marketing team or even a person who is interested in marketing news, tools, and latest trends. It is a fantastic way to develop your marketing skills and knowledge.

As studies, books, and courses help people gain wisdom on various topics, so do conferences. Attending them has many advantages:

    Bad news- it seems you’ve omitted London’s hottest “anti-conference” marketing festival. The MarTech Alliance Festival has an exciting South-East London venue, relaxed vibes and top martech leaders such as Scott Brinker as previous Keynotes. The event will be happening on 30th October 2019 and is definitely one to recommend!

    Thanks for the list. There’s a new conference dubbed the Marketers Conference that was launched in December 2018. It’s expected to be an annual conference for sales and marketing professionals.
