Now running four years strong, the Midwest Digital Marketing Conference lives at the intersection of modern communications. Previously called the UMSL State of Digital Media Marketing Conference, MDMC is the Midwest’s largest digital and social media marketing event. The 2016 conference was held on April 21, showcasing thought leaders and boundary pushers across many disciplines. Experts in the marketing communications industry addressed the cutting edge of digital, social, tech and innovation.

 

We were thrilled to hold the 2016 UMSL Business MDMC conference at the historic St. Louis Union Station, a landmark building constructed in 1894 – just steps away from the Gateway Arch.
