The Attendees Have Spoken

It’s always incredibly helpful to hear any and all constructive feedback to ensure MARCOM continues to add value moving forward. We are very grateful to everyone who took the time to provide their input to our post-conference survey. We will be assembling our Advisory Committee for 2018 and putting on our thinking caps to get started right away!

Below are some thoughts and experiences as articulated by this year’s attendees…

One of the most valuable courses I have attended for marketing…public or private sector”

Great day of learning and networking!” — Chris Day, Chief Communications Officer, HSO & Accreditation Canada

Great conference. A must do for anyone marketing in the public service.

Marcom is an annual event I look forward to that connects me with the state of the art for social media and government, and brings multiple government and NGO entities together under one roof to create a first-class learning and networking experience.” — Zachary P. Devereaux, Director of Public Sector Solutions, Nexalogy Environics

“Great forum to learn and link!” Debra Merowitz, Ontario Ministry of Transportation

This was my first time attending the Marcom Annual Conference. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it left me with a fantastic impression. I’ve learned so much from the workshops, sessions, and roundtables – leaving me with many ideas and inspiration to bring back to my team. It was also a great opportunity to connect with like-minded people, to learn from others who also face the same challenges working in the public sector. I look forward to attending next year!

Great opportunity to learn, network, and stay updated on industry trends.” — Meg Parker, Workplace Safety North

I’ve attended MARCOM 3 years now and each time find myself walking away with new knowledge, new approaches, and new contacts to further the work I do in the public sector. Bravo to the only event of its kind!

Marcom is the premier marketing and communications conference for Government Communications Staff – not to be missed!”

Attending the MARCOM Conference provided me with the insight and tools to take my organization to the next level of marketing and social media engagement.”

MARCOM conference is an excellent opportunity to meet marketing specialists from the public and non-profit sectors. We talked about common issues and offered different perspectives on upcoming challenges. It was well worth the registration fee!

I have attended Marcom several times over the last 13 years, and as a marketer in the federal government, Marcom is consistently the most relevant learning opportunity offering a variety of sessions that appeal to anyone involved in marketing and communications in the public sector.”

This is my third year attending MARCOM. Content is always fresh and relevant. Cannot wait until next year.
