ProcureCon Marketing – Opportunity to Tap Into the Knowledge of Procurement Marketing Leaders

Hot Topic

In just over two weeks’ time, senior decision makers from marketing procurement across all industries will gather at the world’s only pan-European event dedicated to marketing procurement. It will take place at Hotel Russell, London, from 2 to 4 June. ProcureCon Marketing has now been running for three years; last year Peter Smith attended and reported widely on impressive speakers, and some excellent debate and discussion with some of the most well known names in the marketing procurement world. ProcureCon say this year’s event will be like no other – so let’s take a look at the highlights of the agenda:

Driving sustainable value from digital marketing

  • The inside scoop from Digital and Media Directors: How is digital changing your marketing strategy?
  • Best practice marketing procurement: How can you best exploit programmatic buying and avoid pitfalls?
  • How do digitally driven companies structure and strategise marketing procurement?
  • Tracking and managing agencies on performance in the traditional media space: What are the adaptations needed to measure ROI in the digital space?

 

Optimising the efficiency and effectiveness of marketing procurement

  • CPO Live Interview - How to develop strategic thinking around marketing procurement that links business KPIs
  • Listen, Learn and Share - How should you attract, nurture and retain marketing procurement talent?
  • The agencies speak: Where and how do we assign costs?
  • How to interact and collaborate with marketing to create a competitive edge

 

Taking your marketing procurement to the next level

And some exclusive content will feature too, like this 2015 Marketing Procurement Benchmarking Study, which was created in association with Prodigious and distributed to over 3000 Marketing Procurement professionals from companies across Europe.

The event will provide plenty of opportunity for discussions and drill down sessions and to network with peers and leading figures from the profession and industry.
