About the


The Canadian Digital Marketing Summit Is Different

A 1-day conference in Surrey, British Columbia with a focus on practical skills for digital marketers, business owners, and leadership. Learn from some of the industries best on how to manage teams, or manage the work yourself on subjects like Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Marketing, PPC Funnels, Optimization, AI Integration, and much more.

Digital Marketing and Traditional Marketing are no longer able to work in silo’s. Our conference was founded by leadership and digital marketers with over 20 years experience in the field who have worked for some of Canada’s biggest brands including Save-On-Foods, Earls Restaurants, Dilawri Auto Group, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and have supported hundreds of small to medium sized businesses in Canada and the US develop Digital Marketing Strategies to better create brand awareness and generate more sales (leads). The conference is not full of fluff. Its tactical, educational and we guarantee everyone from junior marketing coordinators to senior level business management will leave having learned new skills that you can apply to your work or teams immediately. This conference is ideal for both leadership and those looking to learn a few more skils to apply to their workload.
