In 2013, the State of Digital Media Marketing Conference was born at the campus of the University of Missouri – St. Louis. The first was a half day event featuring prominent speakers mostly via Google Hangouts held at the J.C. Penney Conference Center at UMSL. The conference grew to a full-day in 2014, taking up all of the conference center, and by 2015, it was obvious the venue was too small as sessions, the exhibit hall and keynote were packed. Then in 2016, the event took over St. Louis Union Station, nearly doubling the capacity and attendance along with it. The conference also took on a rebrand, now known as the Midwest Digital Marketing Conference, or MDMC for short. Last year MDMC set attendance records with a remarkable 1,367 marketers and friends, not to mention 300 wait listed persons. We trended on twitter both nationally, and internationally for 8 hours.
