5 Best Marketing Events to Attend for the Rest of 2022

5 Best Marketing Events to Attend for the Rest of 2022

There are many uncertainties around the future of conferences and events in a post-pandemic world, but one thing remains unchanged and undeniable: The power of face-to-face communication is real.

Research shows face-to-face communication is 34 times more effective than when the same message is delivered by email, and that a physical handshake promotes cooperation and improves negotiation outcomes.

Marketing conferences and events provide you with educational sessions presented by industry leaders, and you get the opportunity to network and connect with like-minded marketing professionals facing similar experiences and challenges so you can stay ahead of the ever-changing marketing landscape.

There are dozens of great digital marketing conferences, but they aren’t always the easiest to attend. 

You can expect tickets, travel, and hotel costs to add up — and you'll have to miss work to attend, So picking the right event is critical.

We've selected our top marketing events for the rest of 2022 so you can be sure you’re making the right choice. We’ll go over:

  • How to choose which marketing event to attend
  • Five digital marketing conferences and events to consider in 2022
  • Why you should attend
  • What you can expect at each 

How do you choose the right marketing conferences?

Most marketing professionals won’t have the luxury of being able to attend all of these in-person marketing conferences or virtual events, so how can you possibly know which one to choose?

Ask yourself what you want to get out of it

What is the one thing you want to walk away with? Are you looking for a focus on a specific topic, such as search marketing, social media marketing, artificial intelligence, influencer marketing, digital marketing technologies, or paid media?

Or are you hoping to attend a range of sessions that can inspire you to test new marketing strategies and campaigns?

Or is there one speaker you really want to see?

Choosing a marketing event with a clear goal in mind will help keep you focused on what you want to bring back to the office — to show your boss that sending you was a good investment.

Here at IMPACT, we've found that the biggest challenge clients face when implementing any new marketing strategy is getting roadblocked by lack of alignment and buy-in from leadership.

Events are a great way to combat this.

When budget allows, bringing multiple team members together to attend a conference can help your organization rally around new ideas, chart a course forward, and help leadership catch the vision so you can accelerate your goals.

Below is a list of five world-class marketing events to consider attending for the remainder of 2022.

You’ll notice these events range greatly in price from free pass options, to virtual passes, all the way up to in-person VIP and group rates. With such a big range, be sure to check out each event’s website for more information about which pass type is best for you!

Let’s dive in.

Take a look at the social proof

Still not sure which to choose? See what other marketing professionals who have attended have said about past conferences, who the speakers were, and what the sessions covered.

You’ll frequently find that conferences like INBOUND have embraced hashtags and other ways to get the word out. This kind of research will help ensure you’re attending the right conference and making the best investment possible. 

Of course, you’ll also want to consider price, time away from the office, and whether there’s room in your professional development budget to bring the rest of your team so you can divide and conquer all there is to learn. 

Which one should you choose?

If I were to choose for myself, my vote would be for INBOUND, for the following reasons: 

  • They have an online streaming pass starting at $0. (Yes, you can watch some of it for free!)
  • A diverse, A-List speaker roster. (I mean, who doesn’t appreciate a celebrity or two thrown in the lineup?)
  • We send our staff here at IMPACT every year and are never disappointed.

That said, for any business leader, marketer, or sales professional, any of these five conferences will all give you deep insights, actionable takeaways, and ample networking opportunities. You really can't go wrong!

Regardless of which you choose, in order to be the best business and marketing professionals we can be, and to do the absolute best job possible, we must stay ahead of the curve.

Attending marketing events can be a game-changing experience for your career, team alignment, and business growth.

And when you can't utilize online learning platforms like our own IMPACT+ to stay sharp and improve your results.
