iStrategy digital marketing conferences


iStrategy is an inspirational two-day conference that looks at modern marketing through a digital lens. The conference showcases the best speakers, the sharpest ideas and the most innovative technologies – all aimed at helping our attendees make social, mobile and other digital technologies work for their business. 

Attendees benefit from listening to both globally acclaimed and local market speakers with expertise in every online channel in a series of interactive sessions and keynote speeches that offer practical learning. With plenty of networking opportunities, it is the perfect place to build a professional network, find business partners, generate new ideas and learn.

iStrategy attendees include C-level executives from major brands, leading local entrepreneurs, digital directors, marketing experts, creative agencies, tech firms and other interested parties. Brian Solis recently described us as "an audience of audiences" with good reason – our attendees’ combined online influence is huge and feedback on your presentation will reach well over eighteen million people, based on previous events.

Whether it's building customer loyalty, increasing sales, improving lead generation or driving greater consumer engagement, the iStrategy program has been specifically designed to help attendees develop their audience and build traffic, create brand awareness, improve customer service and develop better use of digital tools internally to drive more productive business outcomes.

With these common objectives in mind, iStrategy recruits keynote speakers, panellists, workshop facilitators and attendees with expertise in the online channels that lead to successful results and tools that provide ongoing measurement, analysis and decision-making capabilities. These include:

  • Social Media
  • Mobile Marketing and Applications
  • Display Advertising
  • Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Pay-per-Click (PPC)
  • Email Marketing, Database Marketing and Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
  • Web Analytics
  • E-commerce
  • Content Strategy, including Video, Viral and Blogs


Since the initial conference in Berlin in February 2010 iStrategy has enjoyed phenomenal success in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Chicago, London, Melbourne, San Francisco, Sydney and Singapore. We’ve Twitter-trended everywhere we’ve been, and reached millions of eyeballs through our online channels. In true social media style, we’ve become a global community. 

iStrategy's mission is to spread passion for existing and emerging digital media throughout the world. The goal for each event is to create an original experiential learning opportunity for participants that will have lasting impact on their digital strategies - at least until the next season's gathering!
