Marketing Festival – This is what a Successful Marketing Conference Looks Like

The coolest conference I´ve ever been to is just one of the praise you can see people posting on Marketing Festival Facebook page. The conference was held in the Janacek Theatre on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd and it proved to be a cherry on the top among the overly conferences held across Europe this year. Seems like marketing, SEO and Social Media scene in the EU have something to look forward to in 2014.

The coolest conference I´ve ever been to is just one of the praise you can see people posting on Marketing Festival Facebook page. The conference was held in the Janacek Theatre on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd and it proved to be a cherry on the top among the overly conferences held across Europe this year. Seems like marketing, SEO and Social Media scene in the EU have something to look forward to in 2014.

Janacek Theatre gathered over 1000 visitors who enjoyed lectures by some of the respected names, such as Neil Patel who talked about how to create a company blog that doesn’t suck.

But that wasn’t Michael’s only performance. He showed some real hip-hop skills at the afterparty in Metro Music bar. One of our readers sent us his video and Jindrich Faborsky said:

When I walked in, there were 300 people dancing like 1. It was an amazing sight of the world class managers and the conference attendees dancing together to Michael King’s rapping.

Some of the best Czech speakers were there, too. Visitors could listen to Ondrej Slama talking about the YouTube videos in the Czech Republic and also Pavel Jašek speaking about the effective customer segmentation.

Chilling, laughing, relaxing

Along with the top trends in SEO, marketing and Social Media, Marketing Festival provided all of the necessities attendees needed for spending two full days in one place. The Google Chillout zone was definitely one of the most interesting places at the conference.

The success-oriented atmosphere

Along with presenting the top speakers, Jindrich Faborsky, the conference organizer, who we recently interviewed, mentioned other very important people:

I couldn’t have done it without all the staff that was motivated enough from the very start. We all had the mutual desire to achieve and this is why the conference was so successful.

I had the staff and the speakers spending some time with me in my office so they could feel the real atmosphere. All of us worked together since March and we all shared the same enthusiasm and the desire for achievement. That’s exactly what we carried over to the visitors.

The highlight

Standing ovation to Jindrich

Jindrich mentioned us earlier the tactics he used to organize such a distinguished event. Indeed, they proved to hit the score by providing the detailed essentials for attendees. Still, that wouldn’t be enough without the passion and determination Jindrich Faborsky put in Marketing Festival. The conference’s success was sealed by the impressive standing ovation for him. Dear conference organizers, can you beat that?
