Over the past six years, CADEK Media has created a productive event and meeting place for marketers – a place where marketers can work on their skills, find inspiration and ideas, and get refuelled.

“Attending the Marketing Indaba was probably the best thing we have done for our business in a long time. It made us realise our marketing mistakes, and, although we knew that we needed to be unique, we weren’t bringing this into our marketing properly. Since attending the conference and implementing the changes, we realised that our website traffic has almost doubled and the amount of sign up forms completed on our website have grown by 20%. This was achieved in 6 months, and we haven’t even implemented everything that we have learnt from the speakers,” says Leigh Goosen, managing director at WAPPoint & Mobilecash

The conference will be hosted in Johannesburg on Wednesday, 24 May and Thursday, 25 May at The Wanderers Club, Illovo.
