Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, our events took place on the third Wednesday of each month. Until we are able to announce our next monthly in-person event, we are thrilled to invite you to our online events.
During these online events, our attendees have the chance to gain world-class tactics and knowledge from some of the top marketing experts in the nation. We have at least two events scheduled every month now through the end of 2021, with some amazing presenters you will not want to miss!
We have a tentative goal for a Q4 2021 (October) in-person event to happen. Stay tuned.
A message from the Utah DMC President - May 18, 2021.
As a board, we had to make the hard decision to postpone the 2021 Digital Marketing Conference, again, that was scheduled for August 27th, 2021.
I know this is very disappointing to many people including our members, attendees, sponsors, and presenters. It's also very disappointing to us, as the board of DMC.
There were many factors that went into this decision, including the biggie, Covid and unknown CDC and local event guidelines, as well as our event location remodeling and thus reducing capacity, and finally, some hesitancy from scheduled presenters.
We waited as long as we could to make the final decision to proceed. As I am sure you can imagine, the conference is a big event with many moving parts, and we crossed the point of no return to pull it off in time at the end of April 2021.
But wait, no more masks or social distancing, Doc! Yes, this is true, and it's also brand new information to us that came in after we made the decision. While the CDC has announced new guidelines regarding mask-wearing and social distancing for fully vaccinated individuals, in the end, we still have not received local guidance for maximum capacity events, social distancing, and the possibility of a venue having stricter rules as a precaution.
The 2022 DMC Conference WIll Go On!
We are very excited to announce that planning is underway for the conference to return in 2022, though we have not solidified a date or location as of yet. So, stay tuned for future 2022 conference announcements. It will likely be in August as usual.
If you purchased a ticket for the 2020 or 2021 conference via Eventbrite, we will be issuing refunds the week of May 17th, 2021, per our Peace of Mind refund policy. Rather than hold over previous purchases again for 2022, we've decided to just refund everyone, since we will not know what ticket prices will be for 2022 yet, based on the new location, etc.
Your refund will be sent to the original form of payment you used when purchasing through Eventbrite.
Thank you for your understanding, and continued support of the Utah Digital Marketing Collective. We look forward to seeing you all again, in person, soon!

I think the organization is genuinely dedicated to helping digital marketing move forward in our state... I don't feel like it's diluted by sponsor messages, or ulterior motives.
