Global Summit & Industry Events

SoDA’s annual Global Summit is an event like none other in the industry. Based on a unique model of transparency, candor and peer knowledge exchange, our global member meeting is less of a conference and more of a leadership experience designed to accelerate professional connection, growth and inspiration. This event rotates annually and has been held in Amsterdam, Montreal, San Diego, Las Vegas, Barcelona, Miami Beach, Lisbon and Nashville (2019). In addition to the Global Summit, SoDA hosts local market events, member meet-ups and gatherings at key industry events such as SxSW, Cannes, CES, Advertising Week and more.

The SoDA Report is an industry trend publication that brings together thought leadership and case studies from some of the world's leading digital agencies and technology innovators, including primary research on global spending trends, adoption of emerging technology, perspectives on the future of digital and evolving priorities for both agency leaders and brand marketers.
