The Stand Out Marketing Procurement Conference

03/30/2020

The only conference for marketing procurement decision makers. It truly is.

In June of 2019 over 200 of these decision makers descended upon the official home of England Rugby – none other than Twickenham Stadium itself.


There were 80+ thought leading speakers sharing practical insights, over 13 hours of invaluable networking time and 37 sponsors on site. All event stats can be found in our Conference Breakdown which can be downloaded here

“Outstanding - the connection between suppliers, advisors and brands would not be possible without us all being here – gets better every year!” – Luke Hammersley, CEO EMEA, CreativeDrive

Social media was buzzing with constant interactions from those onsite at the event.

We actually caught up with Natalia Irena Chudoba, Marketing Manager at Prominate, and spoke with her about why ProcureCon Marketing is a crucial date in their calendars each year. “This event has become an important event for us to attend as a company; we have decided that we will definitely be back next year, thank you so much. ProcureCon Marketing has definitely lived up to Prominate’s expectations.” You can take a look at some of the full quotes from Natalia here.

Our Delegates Spending Priorities and Timelines

One of the things that makes ProcureCon Marketing so unique and the stand out conference for marketing procurement decision makers is the Technology Spend Report we provide our sponsors with. The team behind the scenes at PCM surveys the delegates prior to the event to find out their top spend categories and their investment timelines. 70% of the attendees surveyed were ready to buy solutions within the next 6 months. So you can be sure that deals were made directly at the event last June.


*these reports are only available to sponsors of ProcureCon Marketing.

The 2020 event is starting to take shape and the excitement is building already. It’s going to be bigger and better than last year’s and I can assure you this is one you do not want to miss!
