The Art of Marketing delivers real-world solutions in a live forum, with the goal to empower marketers in their career and help build and grow companies by delivering their messages to more customers. The conference combines practical, career and brand-advancing educational opportunities with networking access to marketing leaders and innovationists in a professional, fun atmosphere.


We’ve architected a sequentially applied for #SDAOM attendees. Registrants can customize their own personal agenda by downloading the official mobile app!


In line with this year’s overall theme, the conference offers three different sessions:

Breaking through the noise to reach your target customer – An incredible amount of content is released every day, and it is becoming harder and harder than ever to reach your target audience. How can you stand out and attract customers?

Breaking through the noise with the right tools – With more than 5,000 tools, applications and automation services available to the industry, marketers can choose from nearly an infinite selection. But which ones really work for your business?

Breaking through the noise inside your organization – Marketers are increasingly being tasked with overall responsibility for customer experience. Going beyond customer acquisition, they are asked to help with customer service, sales and even product considerations. How can marketers work effectively within their organization to successfully take on this extra responsibility?
