2021 Topics


The blending of marketing and technology in recent years has become one of the single most significant areas of investment for marketeers. During the AMI Prediction Series 2021, attendees will hear from some of the best-placed industry minds on how martech is predicted to evolve from 2021. Industry leaders will offer a window into emerging technologies and discuss the new skills and platforms that will shape the future of the industry.


There is no denying the world has changed dramatically, and the effects of COVID-19 means communicators must start seeing things differently. Creativity is a cornerstone of setting brands and businesses apart in a crowded market.  The AMI Predication Series 2021 gives guests insights into the creative trends and thinking that will inspire innovative ways to deal with the challenges of 2020 and beyond.

Marketing with Purpose

The term ‘marketing with purpose’ has existed for some time. However, following a tumultuous 2020, ‘marketing with purpose’ has evolved to provide new opportunities to authentically connect with audiences via shared values. Our speakers will dig deeper into the concept and share a broader understanding of new trends that help build greater, longer-lasting trust with audiences.


The AMI Predication Series 2021 blends the best of on-site events and digital conferencing to deliver a not-to-be-missed, interactive seminar with an in-depth and insightful discussion on the ‘new’ marketing in a new year. Held on location in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, and streamed online for those unable to attend the luncheon, the new and improved format will be fronted by high-level Keynote speakers and supported with must-see panellists.
