8 April 2019

CALLING ALL MARKETERS – we know you’re keen to network and learn, but your time is precious so you can’t go to all the expos and conferences that the industry hosts throughout the UK.

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the six best marketing events between April and June that we think you should attend – we’re certainly going to be at each and every one!

Here’s our rundown…

1. Visual Media Conference, Leeds

We’re heading back to the Visual Media Conference on 16th April as it returns to Leeds for its sixth event.

This time around, the theme is innovation and sustainability, and with speakers from Nestlé, Channel 4 and Communisis in the line up, it looks sure to be a big one! Come to this if you’re interested in product innovation, print, music, technology, marketing education, brand or business growth!

2. MarketingSHOWCASE Birmingham

The popular Marketing Showcase roadshow is now well underway for 2019, with Force24 having attended all of this year’s events so far, including Manchester last week.

Next up, it’s Birmingham on 14th May, and this time the 1-day expo is at Villa Park Football Club. Our MD Adam Oldfield will once again be hosting the table talk – How to 12 x your marketing ROI. Limited to only 8 spaces per session, these intimate knowledge-transfer sessions soon book up, so be sure to plan ahead and register your interest if you’d like to attend.

3. MarketingSHOWCASE Newbury

The roadshow then heads to Berkshire, so we hope to see plenty of marketing faces new and old at the prestigious Newbury Racecourse venue on May 15th.

As always you can pop by our stand to get hands on with the Force24 marketing automation platform and find out for yourselves why it is award-winning! Or you can take time out for Adam’s practical marketing ROI talk, packed with hints and tips for you to use in your own campaigns.

4. Automotive Retail Congress, Coventry

This sector-specific event caught our attention because we’re currently working with many motor dealers large and small. So, we’ve chosen to sign up for this conference at the Ricoh Arena on 21st May, to meet with more automotive retailers with a keen eye on the future.

Designed to help stakeholders prepare for the next 10 years and beyond, the event looks set to pay attention to consumers’ evolving car buying habits – one of the main reasons why so many dealer brands have approached us for help. They’re keen to use our marketing automation platform to power hyper-personalised communications with their ever-more demanding target audience.

5. MarketingSHOWCASE Sheffield

The final Marketing Showcase event of Q2 2019 will be at the super cool Magna Science Adventure Centre In Sheffield on 11th June.

The Showcase team welcomed more than 1500 marketing professionals through their doors in 2018, each with varying levels of industry experience and knowledge. So, if you’d like to see what all the fuss is about, sign up to attend when the event takes place at this central UK location.

6. CDX, Farnborough

To round off Q2 we’re heading to CDX in Farnborough on 12th June. Pitched as the only conference and expo dedicated to the UK motor retail industry, this jam-packed one day programme features workshops, an exhibition showcasing some of the most exciting suppliers to the automotive industry (that’s us!), plus a live stage with some real heavyweight commentators. If you own, manage or work for a UK dealership, this really is the place to be, and in the heartland of the British automotive industry too!

Keep an eye on our Twitter feed or Facebook page for live updates from each of these events, and come back to our blog in July when we’ll round up our top picks for Q3 too!
