Sellout Nedbank IMC 2023 Offers A Waiting List And Virtual Options

  • 3 min read

The Nedbank IMC Conference is living up to its reputation as the most prestigious and sought after marketing event in SA. In-person tickets to the event on 15 September have now sold out. But the Nedbank IMC’s always-slick virtual alternative – which has seen thousands attend in the past couple of years – remains open, as well as a waiting list for the in-person event.

This year’s conference is the first in-person event in four years, making this year’s theme “UpClose&Personal” particularly relevant. IMC CEO Dale Hefer, recalls the last-minute plans that were implemented in 2020 to move from an in-person to virtual event. “It was actually a challenge, but we did it and it paid off. There has never been a dip in attendance, with the Nedbank IMC continually drawing audiences from around Africa and the globe.”

The Nedbank IMC’s promise of a one-day, no-sales-pitch experience has once again attracted a host of local and global thought leaders ready to step up to the mic, representing leading brands, respected creative agencies and exciting outliers. The Nedbank IMC 2023 will host over 30 local and global marketing and creative thought leaders.

Backgrounding the excitement of the Nedbank IMC, however, is its commitment to marketing is business©. The conference seeks to level up marketing as an esteemed contributor to discussions around the boardroom table.

Although in-person tickets are sold out, those eager to attend in person should buy their virtual ticket and request to be upgraded to in-person should a seat become available.

Getting the balance right between understanding and engaging customers, securing brand reputation, driving market share, differentiating yourself amongst all the social media noise and upping your creative game…is a tall order – but attending the Nedbank IMC Conference will help set you on the right path.

One thing is for certain: if you are involved in business, marketing or creative industries, the Nedbank IMC 2023 is an event not be missed.

Virtual tickets cost R1499 Excluding VAT. Purchase your virtual ticket at and get added to the in-person waiting list.
