General information

The MARUG Marketing Conference is the largest student marketing conference in the Netherlands. Annually, about 500 students and business participants visit the event. Lectures and workshops related to the theme will take place during the event. Theme’s like "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!

In this function you will be responsible for productsponsoring for the day and in the goodie bag. At the end of the day, participants will get a well-stocked goodie bag of which you are responsible! Many companies will have to be approached, so easy conversation will come in handy. Furthermore, you will be responsible for the prices that can be won during the promotion period.

You are also responsible for the promotion stunt at Zernike. The planning of flyer moments and lecture talks are also examples of tasks of the promotion function.

Media, Technique & Organization

The decoration of the stage also falls under your responsibility together with finding a photographer that will capture all the highlights of the day.
