About The Conference

Digital Marketers Australia is the one place top Australian marketers come together to learn, network and grow. After the growing success of the monthly city based events, DMA is putting together the very first annual conference in Melbourne and bring top speakers to come share their knowledge for two days.

Unlike other start up events and social media events, the DMA conference will be focusing specifically on digital marketing to help grow your business. Watch our speakers breakdown campaigns step by step so you can roll out strategies that are working right now. Whether you’re just getting started looking for new strategies or have a large team who implements the digital marketing for you, you’ll find people to network and learn from at the conference.
