The last three years have been turbulent times for B2B brands, with lingering fallout from financial crisis and massive upheavals caused by the digital marketing revolution. But with economic indicators predicting a gradual upswing in 2012 – which is also the year of the London Olympics – business brands and marketers need to be prepared to take advantage of improving conditions, growing confidence and more enthusiastic buyers. Just like the Olympic athletes, who will spend the year striving to hit their peak performance just in time for the games, B2B brands need to ensure their marketing is fine-tuned and operating at optimal efficiency, in order to maximise the new opportunities which the economic resurgence will bring.

This year’s B2B Marketing conference is designed to help marketers hit their peak performance and deliver for organisations and brands. Through a wealth of expert speakers, panellists and breakouts, it will provide the insight and inspiration to help marketers understand and address the key challenges that they will face, to evaluate the current marketing activity, and to plan with confidence for a new environment. Leading keynote speakers will provide personal perspectives on the key issues, whilst breakout sessions and a panel discussion will allow a more hands-on and interactive opportunity to address specific issues and pain points. The B2B Marketing Conference 2011 will play a key role in helping formulate your marketing strategy for the crucial year ahead.
