The full details are below, but first here’s a bit more about what you can expect to learn at the Future of Digital Marketing.


Unlike other marketing conferences, we won’t just be focusing on baseless predictions or pointless tech (internet fridges, anyone?).

At #FODM16 you won’t just discover what’s on the horizon, we’ll also put it in context and discuss what can be done about it.

The topics will include bots, personalisation, video marketing and virtual reality, while the speaker lineup features digital experts from the like of Atom Bank, Just Eat, Vice Media and the Reuters Institute.

Plus Econsultancy founder Ashley Friedlein, seen in this preview video getting excited about chatbots.

We also have a keynote from futurist Gerd Leonhard, who will investigate whether the ultimate marketer of the future is a human or machine. Should be an eye-opener.

Now, about that ticket giveaway…

Competition details

We’ll be giving away two pairs of tickets to #FODM16 via a Twitter competition tomorrow (Thursday 2nd June).

In a nod to Ashley Friedlein’s talk on chatbots, entrants have to identify three TV ads that featured robots.

We will tweet three screenshots from the @Econsultancy Twitter account between 11am and 3pm BST.

To take part, entrants must correctly identify the three brands that ran the robot TV ads, then tweet the names of the brands plus the #FODM16 hashtag.

So, just to give you an example, an entry tweet would follow this format:

Brand 1, Brand 2, Brand 3 #FODM16

We will then pick two lucky winners at random from all the correct entries. Each winner will receive a pair of tickets to the Future of Digital Marketing on Tuesday 7th June. 

The winners will be announced on Friday 3rd June. For full terms and conditions email
