With 2017 now in full swing, it’s time to look ahead and plan for success. The countdown is now on until the hottest digital marketing conference of the year takes the Avenue Q stage in the heart of New York City on March 1-2.
I’ve been to hundreds of marketing conferences and the line-up at C3 this year is one of the most exciting I’ve seen together on one stage.
We’ve gathered 40 speakers from major brands (GE, YouTube, GoDaddy) to share their secrets to organic marketing success with you. In addition to our keynotes this year, we have a ton of breakout sessions with marketers ranging from huge enterprise brands like LEGO, to emerging start-ups like ClassPass.

1. Google: Connect to your customer using data
Google Analytics’ Adam Singer is highly experienced in all digital strategy for enterprise brands, with a strong focus on data-driven decisions. In this session, he’ll empower and teach you how to authentically reach your customers with data.

With SEO constantly changing, where should you focus your 2017 budget? We’re excited to have SEO master Simon Heseltine (Search at ForRent.com) present on the major shifts in marketing last year.
