THE MARKETING FORUM is now celebrating its 26th year and we’re delighted to announce our new venue – The Grove, London’s luxury country estate. Our conference regularly attracts senior UK marketers and leading industry figures to share their experience and expertise.


We aim to address the top 5 issues facing today’s senior marketers in a constantly changing business, social, technological, economic and political environment. The 2018 line-up of international experts will share their experience and best practice in a mix of case-studies, seminars, interactive workshops and peer-led discussion groups.

Our keynotes will inspire and entertain you and our industry breakouts aim to provide you with the knowhow to stay ahead of the game, update your business strategy, align thinking with your changing customer needs and ensure your products and brands remain relevant and engaging. Our professional and personal development programme will enable you to meet the changing needs of your workforce, senior leaders and stakeholders and access one-to-one coaching.

So, join us - we look forward to welcoming you to the event!

    Evolving marketing strategy: the 4Ps are no longer enough and in the face of technological change, the way marketers perform their jobs has changed. The customer now has a voice and many platforms with which to share their views. As silos breakdown, the division between Marketing and Corporate Communications is blurring. How should marketers respond to their changing function?

    One-to-one coaching


    Take the opportunity to spend time with one of our highly qualified and experienced coaches to carve out some space from your hectic schedule to explore and

    reflect upon whatever’s on your mind.

    You may have a specific, business-related issue that you would like to bring or something that is more connected to your life outside of work: challenges, ambitions, obstacles, or simply a

    ‘niggle’ or curiosity about something you can’t quite define yet. What you discuss is entirely up to you. Whatever it may be, our coaches will bring their full attention and an independent perspective to the conversation. The ultimate goal is that you leave with more options and ideas, feeling better resourced to take those forward. You may be surprised at what you can achieve!
