The Marketing Conclave has been the flagship event of the Marketing Club. It started off in the year 2007 with the theme based on "Integrated Marketing Campaigns". We followed that up with successful conclaves on "Luxury Marketing" in 2008, "Evolving Consumer Trends" in 2009, "Experiential Marketing" in 2010, “Inclusive Marketing” in 2011, Digital Marketing in 2012 and “Green Marketing” in 2013. In 2015, The Marketing Club will host the 8th Annual Marketing Conclave on “Sports & Entertainment Marketing” on the 9th & 10th January, 2015.
During the Conclave, our core event is the Symposium wherein speakers from various sectors of the industry come and share their insights on the relevant theme. Some of the speakers whom we have had the opportunity to interact with include:
Day 1- Sports Marketing
Day 2-Entertainment Marketing
