NRECA Conference Center, Main Conference Room CC1 at 4301 Wilson Boulevard
Now in its third year, Marketing Tech MagnifiedTM is a DC-area conference where tech-savvy marketers come together to learn about key trends, new technologies, and industry benchmarks. Organized by the region’s leading marketing technology community DC Marketing Tech Talks, this annual conference provides a unique forum to share experiences across all marketing and advertising channels.
If you’re gripped with running campaigns that engage and convert, obsessed with performance tracking and ROI, and excited by the technologies that make marketing better, then we can’t wait to meet you at Marketing Tech Magnified.
After years of adding to MarTech stacks and looking for the next tool that is the silver bullet to more marketing qualified leads, we’re ready to start that conversation—you know, that one.
The one where we discuss whether marketing has become too tactical—too focused on digital lever-pulling—at the sacrifice of strategic omni-channel marketing that reaches the right audience, communicates value, and builds trust.
If you’re ready to dig in, broaden your 2019 marketing mix, and explore new functional areas of the marketing stack, then you can’t afford to miss this year’s Marketing Tech Magnified.

Take Back Control! (Marketing May Require Some Thinking After All)
MarTech innovations continue to accelerate at breakneck speed. Modern marketers now have the ability to micro-target at scale and automate like never before. But did we lose something in the process? Did we substitute automation for thoughtful planning? Did we give up scale for quality? Are we still gathering around a whiteboard and brainstorming creative multi-touch campaign flows like we used to, or are we assuming that marketing automation will do the thinking for us? In this session we’ll explore some of the pitfalls of modern marketing and ways to strike a balance between the art and science of marketing.

1 Ticket = 16 Speakers + 100 Local DC Marketers. Add $50 for tickets bought the day before the event or at the door. But don’t wait that long – last year’s Marketing Tech Magnified sold out a week before the conference.
MarTech Magnified is not just another conference, but rather a very practical, spot on, business-focused exploration of marketing technology.
This conference stands out because it has great participation from diverse industries, marketing functions, and groups of people. With its roots in the DC MarTech Talks community, it was easy to make new contacts in such a friendly environment.
Great sharing of information, valuable discussions, it was a very well-organized event, and fantastic to meet new people.
I like that MarTech Magnified was a one-day experience and that I came out of it learning a lot about what other leading edge marketers are doing.
Evolving strategies, proven practices and success stories from seasoned experts, with networking and discussion - all in one, intensive day, right here in DC. MarTech Magnified is the best investment you can make to navigate evolving marketing technology
