My thoughts…

  1. Who is the Marketing Festival intended for?
    For all those interested in current and erudite information on digital marketing. The lectures and workshops are practically oriented to primarily appeal to specialists in SEO, link building, PPC advertising, web analytics content marketing, and social networks. The Marketing Festival, however, is undoubtedly valuable also for businessmen who manage digital marketing on their own and want to keep up with the latest trends in the field.
  2. What will the final version of the program look like?
    The program will be revealed gradually, as we like to maintain some level of suspense. In the following months we will introduce 18 top lecturers, 20 (and maybe even more) workshops, and a detailed supporting program. If you want to get some idea, check the line-up from the last year.
  3. I do not speak Czech; will I find the conference helpful?
    The Czech lecturers will speak Czech, while foreign lecturers will speak English. The price of the ticket covers an option to use simultaneous interpreting via headphones. Our interpreters have been trained in the field of marketing so their interpreting will make sure you get just as much out of the concert as everyone else. Btw. about 80 % of our lecturers will speak English.
  4. I would like to attend the workshops; will they be translated as well?
    We are sorry but the workshops will not be interpreted. We are planning more than 20 workshops with a capacity of 500 attendants. However, there will be a big number of workshops offered in English, and we believe you will find their wide range to your liking. The registration into the paid workshops will be opened on our website in September and we will keep you informed about the details.
  5. I am from EU country and registered to the VAT. Why am I invoiced including the VAT?
    We are obliged to invoice you including the VAT, although you might be used to invoicing excluding the VAT. The reason is there is an exception in the case of educational events, and the tax has to be paid in the country, where the event takes place (Art. 54 of the Council Directive 2006/112/EC).

    You can ask for the tax return afterwards at the Czech Tax Office in Prague. The main condition is that the VAT has to exceed 50 EUR in one year.

Transportation, accommodation, costs

  1. The price of the ticket is second-to-none, but I am worried about the travel expenses…
    There is no need to worry. Brno is located in the very heart of Europe and you can reach it in various ways – just read through our travel tips. Vienna, Prague, Budapest or Bratislava are located on average 2 hours from Brno by bus or car. Besides, there are direct flights from London arriving at the Brno airport every day. If you purchase the flight ticket in advance, it can cost as little as a few euros.
  2. What about prices for accommodation and food?
    Similar to last year, we prepared discounts for stays in hotels and hostels downtown for our visitors. One night in a 4* hotel costs around 42 euros, while you can find a place in a hostel for as little as one third of this price. Concerning food, the price of the ticket covers a huge banquet for both days of the lectures. Brno is full of beautiful cafés, stylish restaurants, and cozy pubs with more than pleasant prices – a glass of beer for 1.5 euros, a cup of coffee with a dessert for 4 euros, dinner for one person for around 5 euros.
  3. What is the best time to arrive?
    If you have enough time, definitely come as early as Thursday. On Thursday night there is a warm-up party at which you can quickly get acclimated and meet a lot of people. Last year we had a very friendly atmosphere where both lecturers and attendants had dinner together, a few drinks in bars, and accompanied each other to the hotel to make sure they would not get lost. And believe us – the atmosphere of the festival was just unforgettable!
