CMO Conference 2019 : A Small Taste on What to Expect

3 weeks ago

Having organised six (6) CMO Conferences in the past, Marketing Magazine knows the key for a successful and engaging conference is to have a bucket-list-worthy lineup of speakers and panel topics, designed to give everyone a pivotal breakdown of their recipe for brand success.

Before the full official lineup of speakers is announced, here’s a tease of what the CMO Conference 2019 has in store for you.

Gojek has been making the news over the past few days which is why we’re excited to share that presenting the opening keynote for the conference is going to be Gojek Indonesia’s SVP of Creative and ECD VJ Anand. Anand was the creative mastermind leading GOJEK’s branding direction and to start off with a bang, he will be sharing with actual ideas to take back to work and share with their team after the weekend – or immediately.

The conference organisers want to make sure there’s something for everyone who is attending, which is why the conference has been broken into several industry specific panel discussions throughout the day and are sandwiched between broader topics from speakers who know how to keep a crowd engaged.

It’s also going to be a delicious conference this year as the marketing director of Nando’s Chickenland Malaysia, Chai Hui Fund; who spearheaded the peri-peri commercials that got all chicken lovers drooling will also be there as a panelist on fast-food marketing. It’s going to be truly difficult to not be hungry food after these panels but we’ve got you covered there.

Besides that, the conference will also feature speakers from brands such as Dominos Pizza, Digi, Foodpanda, Knorex and more. This means attendees will have exclusive insight from people leading the marketing teams of top brands that have consistently delivered successful campaign. 

The CMO Awards Night will be taking place in the evening. Participants who attend the awards night will have the opportunity to continue networking with some of the best industry thinkers while they raise a glass to the brands and individuals that have created outstanding results.

The CMO Conference & Awards 2019 will take place on November 15 at the Sime Darby Convention Center. Purchase your tickets before October 29 to get both tickets for the price of one*.
