Great Feedback! Great Show!
Well, what a show that was! We hope you all had as much of an amazing and inspirational time as we did. We wrapped up the expo feeling well and truly proud of everyone involved.
As we are already preparing next year's massive show (which I will tell you more about later) we thought we would use this opportunity to share our highlights of the two-day event - from breaking records to trending #1 on twitter, we really felt that everyone who attended left feeling inspired, enlightened and ready to implement 2017’s marketing strategies.
This year we welcomed 200 exhibitors and 7,000 attendees - an increase of 60% on last year's event. 95 seminars and 35 masterclasses were delivered to those eager to learn and 91% of those who attended the event said they would attend again! We heard some of the world's top keynote speakers from the biggest brands and businesses share proven marketing tactics to increase business ROI and support business growth to rooms packed full with marketers.
The latest businesses exhibited products and services which are currently available within the sector and displayed radical innovation and cutting-edge design that is helping to optimise marketing platforms worldwide. The B2B Marketing Awards were also held, judged by some of our superstar keynote speakers they recognised the leading products and services. Check out our separate awards show blog for more about the categories and the well-deserved winners.
We closed the show with some great feedback from all who attended, such as...
Stuart Avis, Digital Marketer for Digital Web World: "The B2B Marketing Expo gave us amazing opportunities to speak to professionals in a variety of different sectors and industries and as a digital marketing agency we thrive on meeting face-to-face with them. The pull of many major companies and brands to the expo is a big plus for us and has generated many important contacts. The expo layout is fantastic and everyone is friendly - creating a great atmosphere to meet with potential new clients."
Dominic Phipps, Head of B2B Recruitment for Brand Recruitment: “We've attended a wide-range of conferences and exhibitions before and I'd certainly say that the B2B Marketing Expo has been one of the better ones. Over the course of the two-day period, we had great footfall in front of our stand and had a massive amount of enquiries with regards to our services. The calibre of the delegates was very high, and we had some great conversations across a wide range of marketing recruitment topics. We'd recommend attending the B2B Marketing Expo next to any one of your clients, and certainly will be over the coming months.”
Catherine Maskell, Head of Global Marketing for Reed: "Thoroughly enjoyed my experience as a judge and the pitching format. I was impressed by the standard of pitches, all companies being able to promote their services within 3 minutes and use technology to assist them.”
Dave Chaffey, Founder and CEO for Smart Insights: “It’s great to be at the #B2BUK Expo again and to see the latest MarTech, it seems 2x larger than last year. I’m looking forward to talking on Marketing Automation, to help Marketers move up the steep learning curve.
All this positive feedback and support has left us excited for next year and we have some very special news for you all…
