The Association for Data-driven Marketing and Advertising (ADMA) has revealed an expanded plan for its Global Forum to include four co-located conferences with more than 100 global speakers including Netflix and Cirque du Soleil. 

Global Forum will be co-located with MAD Week, B&T's week long festival of theCustomer. B&T and ADMA have entered into an agreement to make the week 28 July to 1 April the only week of events that matter in Australia.

Speakers include Netflix’s director of consumer insights, Tim Donza (pictured), Cirque du Soleil’s VP of marketing and PR as well as Audi Korea’s head of marketing. 

The full announcement:

"SYDNEY, 2 April 2014 – The Association for Data-driven Marketing and Advertising (ADMA) today announced it’s expanding its Global Forum to four co-located conferences featuring 100+ global speakers.

“We continue to bring the best data-driven experts and finest global brands to Australia to help marketers, advertisers and creatives explore world-wide best practice at our popular ADMA Marketing & Advertising Forum. But we believe our remit has become broader,” said ADMA CEO Jodie Sangster.

“The marketing and advertising landscape is evolving so rapidly, that ADMA Global Forum has to change with our industry. The marketing universe is no longer segmented as it was previously. Now, disciplines like creativity and media/publishing fall into our remit because they are also becoming data-driven.  We feel that creativity, media and data analytics need their own conferences to explore the latest international ideas and trends under the ADMA Global Forum umbrella,” she added.

In addition to the Marketing & Advertising Forum, there will be three new conferences – ADMA Creative Fuel, ADMA Media Connect and ADMA BI & Analytics Lab – making ADMA Global Forum the biggest marketing, media and advertising event of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region and the go-to conference for the industry to hear from global innovators, creative geniuses and disruptors.
