Let’s cut to the chase: the Digital Revolution is fuelled by how marketing helps monetise it. 

There is no such thing as a free lunch. That’s why game-changing inspiration can always be found 

on the front lines of the marketing and media playbook. There’s never been a more exciting time to 

be in marketing: e-commerce, personalisation, big data, brand safety, walled gardens and more. 

This Conference will show marketers how to take ownership of this future, and how to dance their way through this digital turf war where everyone has an opinion. 

Whatever your take on the future… Marketing is the new Sexy!
