Harnessing the superpowers of Data Science and Analytics to drive business forward

We're excited about what will happen when we bring two worlds together.

Data science and marketing analytics are transforming every industry. There is a reason why it is being called the sexiest job of the 21st century. Calling all professionals that want to harness analytics and data science, do you realize how critical you are to the future of your organization?

MADS is unlike any other conference out there

We go beyond the tools and techniques to make sure you walk out of every session armed and ready to drive IMPACT.

It's going to be quite an experience: We've gone to a whole new level for this conference in carefully picking and curating every keynote speaker and every panel will tell a different and vital part of the overall narrative. And, even if you're the shy type, you'll be hard pushed to NOT shape the event as it progresses – as you can have your voice heard by asking anonymous questions as the sessions progress or simply upvote the audience questions you think are important.

Hear how your peers have applied analytics and data science to solve complex problems, enable improved decision making, uncover new opportunities and increase ROI. That’s some pretty powerful stuff.
