The Marketing Society Global Conference – Changemakers - LIVE

QEII Conference Centre, 10 November, 8:30am to 5pm

Book now

Our Conference 2021 is “Changemakers Unite” and wouldn't be possible without our two headline partners, The Ozone Project and MediaLink. We believe great marketing leaders can drive the consumer confidence and commercial recovery we all need.

Our members can make an impact and make a difference. And it is even greater if we work together.

Once a year, we gather our industry's best and brightest to remind ourselves why great marketing matters. Over just seven hours, experience stories from outstanding leaders from all walks of life—the risk-takers, the trail-blazers, the visionaries who have made change happen. It’s the day that always gets people talking and in a fast-moving world we all need to take the time to listen and learn from other change makers, the 10 November will be a day like no other, mark it in your diary and take the time for yourself and your team.

Over the last year our members discovered how to cope with extremity and many of them found extraordinary reserves to shape new futures for their businesses.  We believe more inspiration is needed to keep up the momentum – not only for our personal lives and organisations but to help companies drive positive change in society too.

The day will be held in a live Conference venue as well as virtually online, you can therefore choose to attend in person or from the comfort of your home or office.  Ticket prices vary and are listed below. 

Join us in a live environment for an inspirational day like no other.
