MarTech is a vendor-agnostic forum for understanding the breadth of marketing technologies and how organizations can effectively integrate them into their marketing strategy and operations.

We'll create an inspiring, cross-pollinating environment that transcends the traditional boundaries between marketing and IT and encourages creative collaboration across the organization. MarTech is a conference for the growing community of senior-level, hybrid professionals who are both marketing-savvy and tech-savvy: marketing technologists, creative technologists, growth hackers, data scientists, and digital strategists.

See what past attendees have said about MarTech:

The inaugural MarTech in Boston was full of ideas and solutions from a host of accomplished speakers and panel members. The topics covered the profound shifts in marketing in a digital world and the challenges it presents along with the ways to overcome them. If you are looking to grow your business in the coming years, you absolutely want to have your key marketing executives attend MarTech!

Jacob Varghese, FITT

It was, by far, the best conference I've been to. Well run, wonderful presenters. I took a lot of ideas away for immediate application within my organization.

Elizabeth Murphy, State Street Global Advisors

MarTech in Boston brought me the most actual insights on the current integration of Marketing, Technology and IT. These developments do not only shape our marketing future, but will also be decisive for the business strategy of almost every organization. The conference was powerful and energetic, with an excellent list of speakers. It also offered great opportunities for networking with other participants. In a fast changing marketing landscape this conference is a 'must attend' for every strategist and marketing professional.

Peter Sprenger, Techonomy Europe

MarTech was the only conference I attended this year because I knew it would be worth not only the money but, more importantly, the time. Scott Brinker and his team assembled a vendor-neutral panel, a refreshing break from the conference norm. The group was made up of marketers itching to dive deep into the details of how technology is impacting marketing, as well as improving not only our companies' bottom lines, but also our customers' lives.

Melinda Byerley, Vendorsi

Excellent presenters that have vast industry knowledge and were very informative and it's a fantastic forum to meet and discuss issues and solutions with marketing technologist peers.

Shawn McCallum, Dell

Great topics and speakers. Very engaging and full of insightful information. I have a marketing operations background but it help put focus on the growing challenges we all face across many marketing/tech capabilities.

Jane Marchand, DigitaLBi

I thought MarTech was fantastic; a great investment of time and money. The speakers (especially the keynotes) were first rate; the audience was highly engaged and the venue was seriously amazing. I was a convert before I got there, but I'm now fully convinced that marketing technologists are to marketing today what social media pioneers were in 2005. Despite the progress, everything is still being defined, and that translates to opportunities galore for those who hop on board today. It will be fascinating to see how theory, so passionately evangelized at this inaugural conference translates over time into actionable learning from high profile case studies.

Rick Murray

One of the best shows I've been to (and been to many). Content focused and on track - rock-star speakers.

Mitchel Ahern, Cantina

Well done, MarTech! I loved the power packed agenda, awesome speakers and above all that it was not about vendors but about us; the MarTech community. After several years, I finally found the conference that I was searching for; a conference fully focused on the marketing technology space.
