Australia’s #1 MarTech conference

Technology driven marketing and advertising continues to reinvent the ways in which brands engage and influence consumers in the moments that matter most. However, as consumer expectations continue to evolve, and with an increased focus on customer empowerment, brands need to differentiate effectively, and engage with their customers how, when, and where they want.

Navigating the ever evolving martech landscape to identify new technologies and work with new data sources to better understand, reach and engage your customers is often daunting and confusing. With such a wide choice of solutions and partners, how do marketers know what works and what doesn’t? How do they ensure they’re making the correct investments for future-growth?

Join us at the Marketing Tech Symposium to:

Discover how to use marketing technology to better understand, reach and engage your customers
Learn from inspiring international keynote presentations and local case studies
Connect with the leading brands and solution providers in a sophisticated and relaxed environment in the Hunter Valley.
Learn, network, socialise and dine with the most influential executives in the region and return to the office with a Marketing Tech action plan.

BRINGS TOGETHER EXPERTS The Marketing Tech Symposium is a fantastic event that brings together experts in the field of MarTech to openly discuss what works and what doesn’t. I would highly recommend the event to anyone who wants to be on the leading edge of what is the next great wave in digital.

Satya Upadhyaya

OPPORTUNITY TO COLLABORATE AND NETWORK The quality of speakers, the thought leadership, industry insights, trends, and you get to know and share experiences with colleagues in a relaxing environment; this is what drives me to this conference. It's away from work in the beautiful Hunter Valley and not rushed, providing opportunity to collaborate and network with other Marketing Leaders.

CALIBRE OF INDIVIDUALS Ashton Media never disappoints with the calibre of individuals AND brands at their summits, well done. The MarTech event was very informative with some excellent content but also invaluable to have face time with CMO/Head of Tech/GM level people from brands and business like Citi, Menulog, Vodafone, Tourism Australia, Binge, UBank etc. Absolutely worth attending and I highly recommend it!
