About the event 

The wait is over! It’s been a long two years not being able to work together face-to-face, but now, DealMaker Asia-Pacific is back and in person!

Join us in Sydney this September to connect, learn, grow, deal and, dare we say, party with nearly 300 of the best (and best-performing) professionals from our tight-knit group of advertisers and publishers. It turns out networking doesn’t have to feel like work. Start building close relationships that close big deals—without a zoom call in sight.

The Golden Link Awards ceremony will take place after DealMaker and will honour the best and brightest advertisers, publishers and agencies in the industry. It’s going to be a night to remember with food, drinks and the opportunity to network with the industry and celebrate with your team.
