Get ready! Here comes round 2 of Digital Masterclasses by OMR: This is how you can attend

It's been four months since we held our first-ever DMCs—this November, the free online seminars are back

Back when corona forced us to cancel OMR 2020, it was clear that we’d transplant as many of the Festival’s core elements into the digital space as possible. First and foremost, that meant digitizing our popular series of deep dives, the OMR Masterclasses. Lo and behold (and thanks be to our tech team), three months after cancelling, we were able to launch round 1 of our Digital Masterclasses. Thousands of you took part with your virtual attendance. Since interest on your end was so great, we’re going live with round 2 this November 10, 11 and 12. The setup is similar with an impressive lineup of digital marketing experts and the same price of admission: zip, zero, zilch. All you need is a computer, tablet or smartphone, a stable internet connection and a willingness to learn from the best! Today, we’re showing you how to sign up and unveiling the first DMCs you can apply for.

Here’s how you can attend: First things first, get your free ticket here to the Digital Masterclasses by OMR. Step 2: check out the lineup of DMCs and apply to attend the classes that best fit your business goals. You may apply to a maximum of 8 DMCs for the entire three-day event; there are five time slots per day. Before you finalize your selection, be sure to double check your selection in the timetable to make sure that there are no overlapping classes. As there will be the chance to ask questions at the conclusion of the seminar per chat, spots are limited. It’s also why there is no guarantee that you will be accepted to attend each Masterclass you apply to attend. The application phase runs through November 3, 2020—but don’t wait to apply. We reserve the right to close the registration to classes that are especially popular to thus limit the number of applications we have to reject. We kindly ask for your understanding.
