What People are Saying About MDMC


"I've attended marketing conferences from NYC to LA and MDMC meets or exceeds expectations right here in the MidWest. Perry and his crew are welcoming, accommodating and share the same hustle as the sponsors and attendees. The quality of the speakers in on par with anything on the coasts. For those complaining about the St. Louis marketplace here is your chance to support a home-grown success story. Get out your checkbook and sponsor MDMC and send your marketing managers there and have them write a report. Money and time well spent! We'll see you next year!"

"Everyone has an opinion but clients will pay for your analysis. So if you're looking for quality content from relevant industry leaders to help frame your thinking, then that's what MDMC is about."

Douglas Davis- Douglas Davis, The Davis Group


"The Midwest Digital Marketing Conference brings together today's leaders with an aspiring cadre of tomorrow's leaders to discuss how the industry is and isn't working. MarTech is a fast moving target—change is rapid and multifaceted—understanding MarTech today requires diving into technology, creative, policy and exploring new unmapped dimensions. It helps to have a forum where this happens among students, professionals, and thinkers."
