Marketing Week readies flagship conference for the smarter marketer

Marketing Week is gathering leading chief marketing officers, vice-presidents of marketing and global marketing strategists from the highest levels of management at the world’s most successful brands to help launch its new flagship conference, The Annual.

Metro Bank chairman Anthony Thomson, Kraft Foods Europe vice-president of marketing Daryl Fielding and Unilever global communications director Babs Rangaiah are among the top marketers who have signed up to speak at The Annual in London on 29 September.

These inspirational managers and more will share their insight with Marketing Week’s audience in a one-day programme packed with practical learnings across three separate themes – Smart Thinking, Smart Working and Smart Engagement.

Delegates should sign up ready to interact and ready to learn as some of the leading business thinkers of our time seek to address many of your most pressing current questions.

Marketing Week columnist Mark Ritson, associate professor at MIT, will cite many of your brands as he explores best practice in brand strategy, while Brian Waring, vice-president of marketing and category at Starbucks UK and Ireland, will examine the challenges of making a global brand locally relevant.

The Annual aims to demonstrate practical ways in which you can build your business around your marketing strategy, increase effectiveness, develop quality customer engagement and, ultimately, fuel growth.
