CMO Digital Insight Summit - St. Andrews, Scotland

CMO Digital Insight Summit - St. Andrews, Scotland

On the 12-14 March 2018 at the lovely Fairmont St Andrews in Scotland, the European edition of CMO Digital Insight Summit will bring together senior marketing decision-makers and business leaders from across Europe to discuss the hottest trends in marketing today – and more importantly, how best to make them work for your business.

The summit will focus on key topics such as: social media stronghold: high performance and full integration; the power of personalized experiences; and digital forecast: emerging trends to integrate into your strategy.

From case studies that lift the lid on operations inside best-in-class organisations, to workshops and collaborative sessions that focus on real challenges and future technology innovations, to one-to-one meetings with industry peers offering practical advice tailored to your specific needs, the summit provides executives with everything you need to implement your key projects more effectively.

Every GDS Summit has one stated aim: to help attending executives implement their key projects more effectively. We do this by developing an in-depth understanding of those executives' project needs, the business outcomes they want to achieve, and the challenges they face in terms of hitting those goals.

Our summits are designed for executives looking to take their organisations to the next level – from market-leading brands to disruptive new entrants. As such, we’ve worked with some of the world’s best-loved and most forward-thinking businesses.
