What’s Acquia Up to at Mautic Conference Global 2021?

Come see how Acquia’s team is getting involved at Mautic Conference Global on June 16 and 17 and discover the power of open marketing.

This summer Acquia is excited to once again sponsor and attend Mautic Conference Global to celebrate the limitless potential of open marketing automation! This year, the Mautic Conference is virtually bringing together business users, translators, marketers, editors, content strategists, designers, developers and more to discuss how open marketing technology is helping people and organizations communicate and connect with their audiences. 

The Mautic Project and Community has experienced tons of exciting developments over the past year, and this second global conference is expanding its format to two full days on June 16th and 17th 2021, since there was just no way to fit all the great range of speakers, panel and discussion sessions into a single day! 

Come see how Acquia’s team is getting involved at Mautic Conference Global and get your conference tickets here to join in the community festivities.
