Whatever your marketing career stage or path, the increasing focus on digital collaboration, remote working and online training can mean missing out on some very useful networking events. Every senior marketing or designer also knows that the next job or opportunity could be just around the corner, which is why being seen at events is a key way to boost your profile and meet the right people.
In 2018, the world is your oyster for those prepared to put in the miles. From the global stage and product-based events, such as Adobe Summit 2018 (taking places in Las Vegas from March 25-29 to events like Marketing Week Live at London’s Olympia West from March 7–8.
Adobe’s event will focus on the latest features for Adobe Marketing Cloud tools, along with productive sessions on optimal strategies and use cases that marketers can use to gain maximise benefit from or increase their knowledge around these tools. Marketing Week Live is certainly more accessible and its UK-centric focus brings together the thought leaders and experts to highlight the issues facing the industry.
Getting your name and brand out there
Not only do these events educate, they provide key networking opportunities and help marketers and designers see the landscape from beyond their office window and the immediate needs of existing customers. This breath of fresh air can help inspire and teach everyone in the industry how to work smarter, as well as highlight the issues we all face.
There are events for all types of marketers and vertical-focused companies that might be a good place to put your boots on the ground and put names to faces.
