Digital Marketing Conferences Don’t Have To Be The Same

Big Digital Adelaide is back in 2018, amping up the Adelaide conference scene again with world-class speakers, a world-class venue and world-class food. Yes, it’s a world-class event! Indulge your inner geek as we immerse ourselves in Adelaide’s historic tech hub, The Science Exchange for a digital marketing conference born in the heart of South Australia.

Spend two days learning every aspect of search engine optimisation (SEO), paid search tactics and tools, social media marketing, blogging and content development.

Connect with speakers and attendees who are genuine experts. Whether you need to learn how to glam up your site on a shoestring, or lock down your WordPress security, understand keyword research, learn to write copy that converts, discover the mysteries of remarketing, or connect with your brand in a way that moves customers as much as your employees, you’ll find it at Big Digital Adelaide.

Outstanding Speakers

Your two-day conference pass includes four outstanding Keynotes. The first of these is Internationally sought after broadcaster and entrepreneur Mallika Bajaj. We’ll be announcing the remaining Keynote speakers by the first week of January. These four outstanding thought leaders are joined by 32 Australian and International speakers, presenting solo style sessions across every facet of the digital landscape. Add outstanding food options – all day tea and coffee, lunch, morning and afternoon breaks, to round out your conference day.

We’re proud to present sessions at Big Digital Adelaide that will have heads turning to the South from right across the world!

“Connection Perfection”

The action doesn’t stop at the end of your conference day… Last year our relaxed Tuesday evening Connection Perfection event was a huge hit. Let’s face it, that word “networking” is just so 1999! We guarantee you’ll get a taste of good, old-fashioned South Aussie hospitality, and more fun than you can shake a robot at!

Oh, and speaking of robots…come meet South Australia’s own Edison robot army…yes, you get to play with tiny robots!

Opportunities for meeting with speakers, sponsors and other attendees are high on the list of priorities throughout the Big Digital conference in Adelaide. We’ve made sure to program long breaks and easy changeover times between sessions, giving you plenty of opportunities for making connections.


Two Tracks each day means you can easily identify sessions most valuable to you and get the best from your investment.

Day 1: Choose between Organic Search & Social and Paid Search & Social. Yes, we decided to mix them up a little – not such a surprise really. Search and Social cross over, interact and can support or damage each other in so many ways, we think it makes sense to present them as part of a mixed Track.

If Google Penalties are giving you trouble, or you’re planning on working to resolve them for clients, you’ll get two of the industry experts in one place as Jennifer Slegg breaks down everything you ever needed to know about Panda, followed up by Sha Menz digging deep into the the latest incarnation of the Google Penguin algorithm, manual actions and what you need to do to take advantage of the update.

On Day 2 we’ll switch gears a little. While the Organic Search and Social track will forge ahead with more outstanding content and world-class speakers, Track 2 will focus on those facing the challenges of Blogging and Content Development. Those of you in the small business community who raised this as a serious pain point, this track has been specially developed with you in mind 🙂
