Digital Marketers & Big Thinkers Take Over Squamish, BC March 28-29th for the Canadian Internet Marketing Conference


On March 28th-29th just a short hour and a bit drive away from Vancouver up in the beautiful mountain town of Squamish, BC the Canadian Internet Marketing Conference is happening! The conference promises to be full of inspirational and cutting edge talks on Internet Marketing given by over 25 world class speakers including high level marketers and thought leaders from companies such as Google, 1-800 Got Junk, Hootsuite, DDB Canada, and even our very own Michael Zipursky, Co-founder of!

Today we’re sitting down with Christian Thomson who is one of the Co-founders of this event to ask him a few questions about the Conference and of course what his favorite creative food and drinks are!

So Christian, first up welcome to the blog! Briefly introduce yourself and also tell us how you founded this conference, the big idea behind it, and any other cool info we should know…

Hey thank you for having me! As the owner of Marwick a Vancouver based Digital Marketing Agency I was searching around the internet looking for conferences I personally would want to go to and learn the very latest from the experts in their sector. I found conferences for marketing in general or specific to social media but nothing that took a broader look at modern day digital marketing. At least not without travelling to the US.

We all want to learn from our peers, be inspired by the latest case study and generally hang out and network.

So I started to connect with people I wanted to learn and be inspired from. The response was ace. I met with my friend Darian Kovacs who runs a digital PR firm in British Columbia called Jelly Marketing and said “hey I’ve got this idea, are you in” in true Darian style he said yes let’s do it. Darian and his team at Jelly Marketing have been amazing to work with.

The conference has since grown into what many people are calling the go-to marketing event for 2015. We have over 25 speakers, panel experts and bloggers over the two day event.

If you’re a business owner, work in a marketing department or within the industry (SEO/Marketing/PR consultant, web designer, blogger etc) then this event is for you. Continue reading
