The dm Forum, brainchild of Melbourne copywriter Frank Chamberlin, has been entertaining Melbourne marketers since 2002. 


The format

The quarterly event runs 6pm - 8pm on a Tuesday evening in the Melbourne CBD. Anyone is welcome to come along for informal networking, drinks and sandwiches, followed by two half-hour marketing presentations.

It's a friendly, relaxed atmosphere that attracts a wide range of marketers, researchers, academics and agency creatives. Register here and we'll send you an invitation to the next event. 

The dm Forum speakers are knowledgeable and the topics thought-provoking. The professional networking opportunities are a great way to learn from other marketers.
