This week, Ignite, will bring together the entire B2B Marketing industry at their 2023 London event and our team are thrilled to be attending. With 100s of leading companies in attendance including Deloitte, PwC and IBM, we can’t wait to get stuck in and engage with the sessions.
The agenda covers so much content over the 2 days, so we thought we’d highlight some of the sessions we are most looking forward to attending and believe can have maximum impact as we constantly evolve in our marketing practices.
Here are the top sessions you can’t miss this week.
