15 Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON) Speakers You Should Know

MAICON Twitter Header

I’ve attended and presented at hundreds of conferences in my nearly (gulp) 20 years in the industry, but, this is my first time on the event organizer side as we build the 
Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON).

And, like every event I’ve been to, we see the diversity and quality of the speakers as the fundamental building block of a great attendee experience.

The inaugural event in July 2019 is chapter 1 of the story on marketing artificial intelligence. We know that most marketers are just at the beginning stages of understanding AI and the impact it will have on their brands and careers.

Our job is to create an agenda of workshops, keynotes and breakouts sessions that give marketing leaders the knowledge, resources and confidence they need to explore and apply AI across a broad range of marketing categories (e.g. advertising, analytics, content marketing, email marketing, SEO, social media marketing) and use cases.

I’m excited to announce the initial group of 15 amazing speakers who will help us make AI approachable and actionable for marketers.

More MAICON Speakers to Come

This group is just the start! The call for speakers is now closed but and we’re in talks with dozens more potential presenters, from major brands and martech platform companies, to AI experts and innovative startup leaders. In total, we plan to have 40+ speakers at MAICON 2019. Stay tuned for more!

I hope you’ll join us in Cleveland, July 16 - 18, 2019 to learn from this incredible group of professionals. Visit to view the full agenda!
