In less than 2 weeks, the country’s top media and marketing minds will be making a big impact at this year’s highly-anticipated Integrated Marketing Communication Conference taking place on the 15 & 16 October at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton Johannesburg.
As a marketing professional, its becoming more challenging to retain and acquire customers, all in the while gaining competitive advantage in this ever-changing marketing sphere. The proliferation of channels and available information makes it hard to focus on, understand and keep track of where true opportunities lie, and it is with this understanding that the 4th Annual IMC Conference has been designed.
With an impressive guest speaker and workshop line-up that include some of the biggest names in the business, this exciting 2-day conference is not only guaranteed to cover all aspects of marketing, media and communication, but delegates will have the opportunity to pre-select the workshops they want to attend, as well as ask questions prior to the conference via #IMCQUESTION to ensure they get the most out of their conference experience.

- International Speaker Joshua-Michéle Ross (Fleishman Hillard Europe) | Digital Good to Great – Communications strategy for a Connected World
