3 marketing technology myths we’ll debunk at the vendor-agnostic MarTech conference

That's Not How Martech Works!

As the world’s largest, vendor-agnostic marketing technology conference, MarTech gives you real-world insights into the good, the bad, and even the ugly of procuring, implementing, and operating marketing technology solutions. Our 2-day program delivers candid, in-depth, and unbiased content that you won’t get anywhere else.

MarTech is designed specifically for marketing operations executives who are responsible for leveraging martech investments and technologies. And we’re not looking to sell you anything — well, other than a conference ticket.

Our independence frees us to debunk prevalent myths in today’s rapidly evolving marketing technology environment…

Myth #1: AI, big data, and analytics are squeezing the “art” out of marketing.
Fact: Not even close. The more “scientific” marketing becomes, the more likely that creativity is the differentiator in creating unique and engaged customer experiences.

Myth #2: CMOs have to be technologists to lead in today’s environment.
Fact: Nope. But they do need technical leadership embedded in their team. Join us at MarTech and you’ll hear top CMOs and senior marketing technologists discuss how they embrace agile marketing, collaboration, and creativity.

Myth #3: The hardest part of modern marketing is implementing the technology.
Fact: Technology is often child’s play compared to the requisite organizational change. At MarTech, you’ll get fresh insights into how martech pioneers are organizing their marketing departments and how teams are effectively staffing (and re-staffing).

If the facts are what you’re after, join us April 23-25 in San Jose for MarTech. Only MarTech presents real-world case studies that are selected because they are compelling and instructive — not because they’re what a vendor wants you to hear.

Check out the MarTech agenda to see what’s in store.
