Marketing: it’s complex, especially in this digital age. To keep track of trends, metrics, and mind-bending amounts of data, we have marketing technology (or MarTech). We’re fortunate to have a set of speakers at CMC this year who specialize in marketing technology. Here are a few of our favorite speakers and events in this category:

Anita Brearton

As the founder and CEO of the marketing technology discovery and management platform, CabinetM, Anita helps marketing teams to get the most out of the technology they have and to obtain the technology they need to go further. She has been recognized as one of the top 50 female thought leaders in marketing technology.

She will be speaking at a 60 minute session entitled, “An Introduction to the Marketing Technology Stack.” Here, Anita will discuss the rate at which MarTech stacks are growing in both size and complexity. She’ll discuss the growing need for every marketing department to wield competitive MarTech assets. Plus, she’ll share the many key insights that she has developed in her experience, which we believe you’ll agree are quite numerous.

Cathy McKnight
