The MARUG Marketing Conference is the largest student marketing conference in the Netherlands. Each year, about 500 students and business participants visit the event. Lectures and workshops related to the theme will take place during the event. Themes like "Contagious Content", "The Cloud of Connections", "The Jungle of Data" "Marketing 2020" and “Co-Creation" came by previous years.
The Day Organisation of the MARUG Marketing Conference is a challenging committee in which you work together in a big group, but also carry responsibility towards the organisation of the largest event of the MARUG. So, a great opportunity to develop yourself next to your study program and to make new friends. I can highly recommend it!
