At Confluence Conference, learn from some of the industry’s top leaders and influencers in digital marketing, branding, social media, SEO, content marketing, online conversions, analytics and more, while networking with others in your field.
Who is Confluence Conference for? We’re for the specialists, the jacks-of-all-trades, and the managers. We’re for digital entrepreneurs and small business owners, and we’re for marketing departments big and small. We invite speakers whose lessons will apply whether your job is more technical or more creative. If you use the internet to connect with clients and make sales, you don’t want to miss Confluence.
Since this first gathering, we have grown beyond our wildest dreams and have welcomed speakers like Mike King, Dana Ditomaso, and Ian Lurie to the Confluence Stage. In 2018, we’re excited to move the region’s premier digital marketing conference to the Tower Theatre, near all the excitement of downtown Oklahoma City. We’re ready to put our city on the map for digital marketers, and what better place to do that in OKC than Bricktown?
