Digital Marketing Conference News – November 2016

Early bird discounts and discount codes have been updated, with several additions to each list.

The main news was the release of 2017 events on the conference calendar.

With 100+ events so far, the first half of the year is taking shape. But as you can see from the later months, many conference have not announced anything yet. To keep up with the biggest updates, subscribe to the newsletter.

Also in October, the calendar page had a record amount of usage, with signs of growth ahead. This should help with the completeness and freshness of the listings, plus the quantity and quality of the discount codes.

For conference organizers, Q1 ad spots are almost gone. Inventory is wide open the rest of the year, but with so many conferences out there, these things can change quickly, so don’t miss out on 2017.
