Splashy vendor-sponsored events have their place — if superficial celebrity keynotes and product roadmap presentations from the CEO are your thing.
But what you don’t get is unvarnished access to what really matters: the good, the bad and the ugly of procuring, implementing and operating marketing technology solutions. And that’s what you really want, right? That powerful, unbiased content is what can help take an average organization to an amazing level of success.
If the facts are what you’re after, join us April 23-25 in San Jose for MarTech® — the world’s largest vendor-agnostic marketing technology conference. MarTech is designed specifically for marketing operations executives who are responsible for leveraging martech investments and technologies. Only MarTech presents real-world case studies that are selected because they are compelling and instructive, not because they’re what a vendor wants you to hear.
Check out the MarTech agenda to see what’s in store.
MarTech’s independence frees us to debunk prevalent myths in today’s rapidly evolving marketing technology environment.
Myth: AI, big data and analytics are squeezing the “art” out of marketing.
Fact: Not even close. The more “scientific” marketing becomes, the more likely that creativity is the differentiator in creating unique and engaging customer experiences.
Myth: CMOs have to be technologists to lead in today’s environment.
Fact: Nope. But they do need technical leadership embedded in their team. Join us at MarTech and you’ll hear top CMOs and senior marketing technologists discuss how they embrace agile marketing, collaboration and creativity.
Myth: The hardest part of modern marketing is implementing the technology.
Fact: Technology is often child’s play compared to the requisite organizational change. At MarTech, you’ll get fresh insights into how martech pioneers are organizing their marketing departments and how teams are effectively staffing (and restaffing).
