WHERE TO FROM HERE…
Step off the social media and digital marketing merry-go-round and get your bearings with a day of social and digital enlightenment and entertaining at Australia’s most unconferencey conference.
This time around, we’re bringing together more delegates and more of the brightest minds in social media and digital marketing to stimulate informed debate across a trifecta of titillating topics.
At a time when the marketing landscape is changing faster than Facebook’s algorithms, State of Social 2019 is a solid rock of knowledge towering from the rolling sea of social and digital innovation.
It’s a place where we plainly pose and adroitly answer the question ‘Where to from here?’
