ABOUT THE MIDWEST DIGITAL MARKETING CONFERENCE

In 2013, the State of Digital Media Marketing Conference was born at the campus of the University of Missouri – St. Louis. The first was a half day event featuring prominent speakers mostly via Google Hangouts held at the J.C. Penney Conference Center at UMSL. The conference grew to a full-day in 2014, taking up all of the conference center, and by 2015, it was obvious the venue was too small as sessions, the exhibit hall and keynote were packed. Then in 2016, the event took over St. Louis Union Station, nearly doubling the capacity and attendance along with it. The conference also took on a rebrand, now known as the Midwest Digital Marketing Conference, or MDMC.

The Midwest Digital Marketing Conference is the largest digital marketing conference in the Midwest. MDMC19 set attendance records with nearly 2,000 marketers and friends. There were over 130 speakers including BuzzFeed, Pandora, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Refinery29, Pinterest, GoDaddy, Under Armour, LinkedIn, HubSpot, Google, Yahoo, Nielsen and more. MDMC19 featured over 100 sessions across nine tracks: Data, Digital, Social Media, Creative, E-commerce, Innovation, academic/student, Tech and entrepreneurial.

MDMC24 will be held at the Touhill Performing Arts Center located on the University of Missouri - St. Louis (UMSL) campus May 13 - 15, 2024.
