Digital Marketing Day is an annual day event which brings you the latest thinking, case studies and upcoming trends to be aware of, in engaging your audiences online. It covers everything you need to know about all things digital.

Whether you’re working to get more engagement on your social channels; to understand what people want from your website and how they behave online, to build digital campaigns that reach new audiences, to integrate different functions and tools to make your work easier… Whatever your challenge, Digital Marketing Day has got your back.  

Digital Marketing Day has previously run on one day in two locations, with simulcast content bringing the Scotland and London-based events together.

Digital Marketing Day offers a choice of sessions ranging from the practical to the strategic. From toolkits, hints and tips that can be used immediately in your organisation to strategic insights, best practice case studies, and ideas to influence organisational thinking and focus, it provides a packed day of learning. Plus the opportunity to hear from and network with peers. 

We bring you speakers from across the UK nations and beyond, to bring you the most relevant and up to date insights and experience.  


The results of Digital Marketing Day are broad and reflect the range of content covered. Delegates have reported that it: 

  • informs thinking for new marketing strategies
  • helps them develop more emotional and impactful digital storytelling in communications,  
  • help them plan longer-term and to embed data and digital techniques at the heart of strategy,  
  • helps them think through how their digital marketing plan informs the overall marketing plan,  
  • helps identify work they can do in more depth about how we can make organisations more digitally inclusive and accessible.  
  • Add more confidence in learning about and sharing new technologies
