Best Marketing Tech Conference You've Never Heard Of
BY Aaron Aders
Over the past decade, Indianapolis has quietly shifted from a center of manufacturing and shipping to a marketing technology hub. Check out this conference.
For cutting edge marketing technology information, look no further than Techpoint's M-Tech Conference on September 19, 2013, at the JW Marriott hotel in downtown Indianapolis.
Over the past decade, Indianapolis has quietly shifted from a center of manufacturing and shipping to a marketing technology hub. Consider this: there have been 10 technology company acquisitions in the last four years with a combined market cap of $4.8B, and over 3,500 jobs created by these organizations.
The three largest companies of the bunch (ExactTarget, Aprimo and Angie's List) all have something in common: they're all marketing technology platforms that were founded in Indianapolis. Many other digital marketing software and service platforms like iGoDigital, Scale Computing and DigitalRelevance have joined this movement over the past decade.
Techpoint, an Indianapolis-based organization focused on supporting the Indianapolis tech community, is fueling the Indianapolis-based marketing technology movement by launching the M-Tech conference. This one-day event features educational presentations from the best minds in marketing technology, interactive software demonstrations and exhibitions featuring the most cutting edge companies in marketing tech.
Insights Stage Presentations
Learn from some of the most influential minds in the marketing technology sector. Sponsored by Ball State University, the Insights Presentations will introduce some of the latest and most advanced marketing technologies and strategies to date.

The event will also feature a panel of experts in the marketing technology space, including ExactTarget cofounder and CEO Scott Dorsey, as well as Todd Wagner, cofounder of Broadcast.com. Dorsey founded Exact Target in 2000, took the company public in 2012 and was recently acquired by Salesforce for $2.5B. With Mark Cuban, Todd Wagner cofounded Broadcast.com in 1995 and were acquired by Yahoo in 1999 for $5.7B. These Indiana natives will discuss their experiences and the future of tech, marketing and media.
Whether you're an investor looking for the next hot ticket in marketing technology or a digital marketer that needs cutting edge solutions, the M-Tech event will be your hub for the latest in marketing technology. Reserve your tickets today at the M-Tech Eventbrite web portal.
