Our Adelaide Digital Marketing Conference is Different – About

Digital Marketing Conferences Don’t Have To Be The Same

Big Digital Adelaide is back in 2018, amping up the Adelaide conference scene again with world-class speakers, a world-class venue and world-class food. Yes, it’s a world-class event! Indulge your inner geek as we immerse ourselves in Adelaide’s annual Tasting Australia event for a digital marketing conference born in the heart of South Australia.

Start your Big Digital experience with a full-day workshop that allows you to dig deeper into a single area of search marketing on Wednesday 18th April. Then Spend two days learning every aspect of search engine optimisation (SEO), paid search tactics and tools, social media marketing, blogging and content development, and a dozen other topics that will help you step up your online results in 2018.

Connect with speakers and attendees who are genuine experts. Whether you need to learn how to glam up your site on a shoestring, or lock down your WordPress security, understand keyword research, learn to write copy that converts, discover the mysteries of remarketing, or connect with your brand in a way that moves customers as much as your employees, you’ll find it at Big Digital Adelaide.

Outstanding Speakers

Your two-day conference pass includes four outstanding Keynotes. We’re super excited to have Google’s Gary Illyes back with us again in 2018. Gary spent some time battling it out in the Big Digital Bot Wars of 2016, and we can’t wait to have him back in Adelaide this April.

We’ll be announcing the remaining Keynote speakers in coming weeks. These four outstanding thought leaders are joined by a field of 28 Australian and International speakers, presenting solo style sessions across every facet of the digital landscape. Add outstanding South Australian themed food options – all day tea and coffee, lunch, morning and afternoon breaks, to round out your conference day.

We’re proud to present sessions at Big Digital Adelaide that will have heads turning to the South from right across the world!

“Half-Time Happy Hours”

The action doesn’t stop at the end of your conference day… Last year our relaxed Tuesday evening Half-Time Happy Hours event was a huge hit. If you weren’t there last year to see Marty Weintraub, Purna Virji and Kate Toon face off in a tense and hard-fought game of SEOpardy, you missed out “Big time”! Party Sponsor Kwasi Studios turned on the blue beer, and South Aussie signature treats were everywhere!

At Big Digital we’ve totally reimagined traditional conference networking, because, let’s face it, that word “networking” is just so 1999! In 2018 we’ve kicked it up another notch. We guarantee you’ll get a taste of good, old-fashioned South Aussie hospitality, and more fun than you can shake a robot at!

Opportunities for meeting with speakers, sponsors and other attendees are high on the list of priorities throughout the Big Digital conference in Adelaide. We’ve made sure to program long breaks and easy changeover times between sessions, giving you plenty of opportunities for making connections.

Two conference Streams

We’ve designed our Big Digital event to give you exactly the content you need, regardless of your experience level, with two single-track conference streams running side-by-side in the same venue. Keynote presentations (including a one hour Q&A style Keynote with Google Webmaster Trends Analyst Gary Illyes), lunch, breaks, and our South Aussie Pub based networking party are shared across the entire event.

Search Marketing Bootcamp

We understand how overwhelming traditional digital marketing conferences can be when you’re just starting out – whether you’re starting a career in search, or managing online presence for your small business website, what you really need is a solid training course that gives you a real grounding across all major areas digital marketing. Our brand new Search Marketing Bootcamp meets this brief in every way.

There are sessions on every facet of digital you could imagine. Every one delivered by real practitioners who know what you need to succeed.
