The Best Marketing Events & Business Conferences for 2020: APAC Edition

There are more and more marketing conferences events popping up every year and it can be hard to separate the wheat from the chaff!  To ease the strain slightly, we’ve compiled a list of the top marketing events in APAC everyone NEEDS to attend in 2020...

#DMWF Asia 2020

  • When? 2nd - 3rd December 2020
  • Where? Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
  • Check it out

#DMWF (Digital Marketing World Forum) has been running for over 11 years. They’re considered the granddaddies of the marketing conference world. Although their Asia conference is fairly new to game with over 300 attendees, they certainly know their stuff when it comes to marketing.

This two-day conference delivers top-level strategic content and digital marketing insights, networking, and discussion from leading global brands. All while tackling the challenges of the digital future.

This year they’re exploring the latest trends and strategies within influencer & social media marketing, content & digital brand strategy, eCommerce UX & CX and data & disruptive tech. This conference is not to be missed.

#MarTechFest APAC

  • When? 5th November 2020
  • Where? Carriageworks, Sydney, Australia
  • Check it out

If we’re talking about the best marketing events to attend in the APAC region, of course we’re going to include our own. Introducing #MarTechFest APAC the anti-conference you know and love but in Australia!

We're pretty pumped to be heading Down Under for #MarTechFest APAC taking up residence in Carriageworks, Sydney's most exciting event space. Stunning warehouse architecture will form the backdrop for our inaugural anti-conference.

Although a more intimate event with 300 attendees, we’re applying the same tried, tested and loved anti-conference theme to give you the full #MarTechFest experience. We reject the norm by encouraging our speakers to swear during session, encourage our attendees to put on their comfy clothes and keep your belly full of tasty street food you’d actually spend money on. I mean we have a goddamn hashtag in our name, if that doesn’t say it all I don’t know what will.

Yes, we are extremely biased, but we can guarantee a good time with beers, beats and our sick line-up of speakers.

Of course, we would never dare ask you to pick the underdog...

The agenda and themes are yet to be announced but if last years line up is anything to go by then this year should be a corker. Companies like Adidas, Twitter and TikTok Ads Japan were the keynotes speakers and they even had Ms, Del Genes who’s organising the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics to chat about her views and insights on current and future marketing trends.

If that doesn’t want to make you go, then I don’t know what will
