Digital Marketing Day 2018 — Future Now

Wednesday 5 December @ 9.30am — 5.00pm


Join us at Digital Marketing Day, where for the first time we’ll be bringing the programme to two linked locations. We’ll have speakers at both the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow and the British Museum in London. You’ll be able to see both the keynote sessions, whichever location you’re in, as we’ll be live streaming them from, and to, each venue. Whether you join us in Glasgow or London, you’ll experience a full day of learning and inspiration with plenty of opportunities to network.

Although the Centre for Contemporary Arts is currently closed, it will be open for our event on 5 December.



Sessions and speakers

With an international line up, the speakers at this year’s Digital Marketing Day will fill you with new ideas, concepts and possibilities, plus the inspiration to try them out.

Click on individuals to learn more about their sessions, who they are and to find out who will be in Glasgow and who will be in London. You can see the full list by visiting our Digital Marketing Day Programme Page.

Remember — keynotes will be live streamed from each location.

We will be updating this page as we announce further speakers, watch this space as more are confirmed.

What is it about?

As the AMA celebrates its 25th year we ask, ‘what might the future of digital look like?’

If we propel ourselves forward another 25 years, what stories will the cultural sector be telling? How will we be telling them? And to whom?

At Digital Marketing Day 2018 — Future Now, we’ll be flexing our imaginations and future-gazing. Explore where the sector is now, what the current opportunities are and what might happen in the near-future. Dare to imagine. Imagine the direction of digital and its potential for the arts and cultural world. Imagine your place in that world. Discover the current realities, the near digital future, and the tantalising possibilities.

You’ll hear from speakers from the cultural sector and beyond, who will share their experiences in digital innovation, as well as their practical know-how.

What will I gain?

  • Practical insight into how to better use and understand digital 
  • Inspiration to take forward exciting digital ideas and practical knowledge in how to implement them 
  • An understanding of the broader digital landscape, the journey so far and where cultural organisations sit within it 

Who is it for?

Cultural professionals looking to improve their digital knowledge, gain insight into current trends and learn about the future direction of digital.
