What is B2B Marketing Forum?
MarketingProfs’ B2B Marketing Forum is more than just a quirky (not-so-little) conference. It’s the place where leaders, innovators, and people who make things happen gather to learn about the latest in B2B marketing and share the secrets to success. (Plus belly laughs, creative networking, shenanigans, and marketers-after-dark antics.) Now celebrating our 11th year, it’s still intimate enough that you’ll surely see some of your favorite marketing pals, but big enough that you’ll find more than enough smarts to help you go the distance.
Register now and join us for MarketingProfs' B2B Marketing Forum in Boston, October 3-6, 2017.
