Don’t miss out on the networking and knowledge-sharing

Marketing Café is a unique environment for marketing experts to connect, share ideas and learn from thought leaders in the industry in a cozy café style setting.

Over freshly brewed coffee and baked goods, we’ll engage in meaningful conversations on the most relevant and trending topics in the industry that affect you and your business, giving you insights and knowledge to advance your marketing skills and stir up some fresh ideas to implement in your company.

We hosted the first Marketing Café in Joburg in Feb, and after many coffees, cookies, and chats on comfy couches, we knew we had to bring this one of a kind experience for top marketers to Cape Town in September! 

You can expect the same high-quality speakers, content and experience, this time with a focus day dedicated to customer experience: CX-360.
