The Marketing Forum for this year is set to feature Facebook's marketing director for business EMEA, Phillipa Snare; Victoria Wentworth, chief customer & strategy officer of Wesleyan Assurance; astronaut Dr Michael Foale CBE; and Emma Inston, marketing director, Hive, by British Gas, on its content line-up for this year's cruise.
Setting sail on the first week of October, the cruise ship Aurora will play host to hundreds of brand and agency marketers, who will be given the opportunity to meet during the three day event and attend panel sessions and keynotes assisted through an exclusive media partnership with The Drum.
Other names involved will include economist, author and broadcaster David McWilliams; business neuroscientist Lynda Shaw; Louise Hodges, head of communications, Europe & global coordinator for Travelzoo; Andrew Canter, global chief executive of the Branded Content Marketing Association; and David Ellison, marketing services manager of ISBA among many other contributors.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to attend a number of personal development sessions being led by some of the speakers, and will have plenty of time to socialise with their peers.
Dave Clark, project manager for Richmond Events, said: "We are delighted that The Drum will be our official media partner at The Marketing Forum. From our own research we’ve seen how The Drum has grown in importance within the UK marketing industry, culminating last year with it being named as the most read title among our attending agencies."
As well as covering sessions on this year’s programme, The Drum's membership division The Drum Network will also take an active part in the conference, both by chairing some of the seminars as well as running a series of discussion groups.
