B2B Fast-Track Overview
This ‘invitation only’ marketing event is dedicated for marketers who are working in the technology sector and is designed to bring the vendors you need directly to you.

B2B Fast-Track Meetings
The Marketing Forum meetings enable you to meet with vendors who have been carefully selected by us because they have experience in providing marketing services to the technology sector. We are looking to match your needs with those of the vendors. We will facilitate 20 minute meetings with potential suppliers that are of interest to you and who understand your needs. At the end of the meeting, you can then look to develop the relationship and take it onto a more commercial level. This is a great opportunity to meet one-to-one with a group of relevant vendors who specialise in your area.
