Partly because they are still trying to figure out how to unleash the true power of Digital. D-CODE is the most important calendar entry for these marketers, because it is the only forum where numerous Digital practitioners, will share their best work, someone else’s best works, and give their essence of learnings on what worked. Miss it at your own risk.”

Our speakers this year once again include a mix of the established and emerging online publishers, a client list that spans the traditional advertisers to pure online commerce  businesses, representation from the agency world , creators who have built their brands online and the speaker list would not of course have been complete without cricket given its dominating online presence this year .
