Roundtable Challenge
Today’s B2B media practitioners are faced with a wide array of challenges that must be dealt with simultaneously—and quickly—if they are to stay abreast of opportunity and build their businesses. This workshop session will see attendees divided into teams to address such issues as Speed to Market; Custom Publishing: Leveraging Expertise; How much to Invest in Audience Development; Editorial Integrity in a World of Native Advertising; “Fast & Dirty Business Planning,” and more. Over the course of the Summit the teams will draft solutions to the challenges and present them in a closing plenary session.

The Business Media Leadership Summit is the only such gathering of its kind for Canada’s B2B executives. All four of the previous summits have drawn attendees from across the country and provided actionable new ideas for building revenues and strengthening their businesses. It will be of value to the entire business media team including senior editors, sales and audience development staffers.

Space is limited, and we frequently sell out, so book your spot today. The event fee includes all meals and overnight accommodation at the elegant Kingbridge Conference Centre.
