In March, ownership of The Financial Services Forum transferred to Incisive Media. This is the start of an exciting new chapter for The Forum and will mean we can introduce new services for our Members, adding even more value to your membership.
This won’t impact on our highly-successful events programme, and our new schedule promises to be as relevant and insightful as ever. There are sector-specific hot topics, as well as core marketing events such as Maximising Your Return on SEO and SEM, an Introduction to Virtual and Augmented Reality and Winning over Wealth, which will look at the reasons why women are, in general, less engaged with investing.
Please do book yourself in for as many events as you can and look out for our webinars as well. It’s the best investment you can make in your marketing and sector knowledge, as well as keeping up-to-date with future trends.
You’re welcome to come along to events that are not directly related to your sector, as there are always things we can learn from other areas of the industry.
One of the highlights of this calendar is our Product and Service Innovation Awards Dinner, which will be held at The Museum of London on Thursday 23 May. You don’t need to be shortlisted for an award to come along. It promises to be a fun evening, and a great networking opportunity. The evening will open with a drink’s reception and canapés, followed by a three-course dinner and the Awards ceremony. Guests will then have the chance to celebrate at the after-party with DJ and drinks.
And while we’re on the subject of awards, don’t forget to submit your entry to the prestigious Marketing Effectiveness Awards. Entries close on Friday, 21 June 2019. If you would like to enter, but don’t have the resource to write the entry, please let us know.
I very much look forward to seeing you soon.
