ComMa Congress

You can sign up for this event at the website of the MARUG via the following link: Non-MARUG members have to make a temporary account, this means you don't have to become a member of MARUG if you're already a member of Commotie. Important: state on your registration that you're a member of Commotie!


The ComMa Congress is a co-operation between the MARUG – the study association for marketing students – and Commotie and is organized by the ComMa Committee. The ComMa Congress is especially interesting for students who want to learn more about marketing and communication, since the link between both worlds will be emphasized. The day consists of workshops and lectures about various interesting topics. Approximately 40 students are expected to participate the ComMa Congress. 

The ComMa Congress of 2020 will take place on the 15th of October. This annual event focuses on subjects within the marketing and communication field. Our theme for this year is The War for Attention: Standing out in a crisis. During this COVID-19 Crisis, limited time and mental resources make it difficult for the audience to dedicate sufficient attention to advertisements thus making the competition for attention more intensive. This war for attention has become more intense. The 2020 event will host 2 speakers and 3 workshops and will be held at Stadslab Groningen, a spacious venue with young and energetic vibes. We are very honoured to have Wehkamp and Bijenkorf to speak at our event about the marketing and communication strategies of the companies during the corona time. After the speech, we invited Heineken, Reprise and Daar-om to give workshops.

The walk-in will be from 15.30h onwards and the event will end with a social at 20.30h. We would provide free dinner at around 17:30. More detailed schedules will be announced to the participants.
Due to regulation of COVID-19, we have limited spots available (around 35 for participants). There might be a selection procedure, so please fill out your motivation for joining the event. The price for members of MARUG and Commotie is €6.00, the price for non-members is €7.00. (Dinner and drinks included).

This is a perfect chance to have contact with the companies but also fellow students! Please check their Instagram page @commacongress for more information. There will also be some surprises for you in a nice goodie bag.

We would really like to see you soon at the ComMa Congress!
