Dear Delegate, Firstly may I take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to attend the inaugural Sales & Marketing Summit The timing of the event could not be more opportune with a new Government now in place, concerns over Brexit and the implications for Ireland and a rapidly changing political landscape globally including one of our key trading allies the United States of America. This engaging, full day conference and exhibition is a unique conference that focuses on the fundamental changes occurring between how buyers and sellers interact at both a consumer & business level. This game-changing shift in the marketplace requires a new approach, blending the strengths of senior executives, sales, marketing & PR like never before!

Delegates are free to move between both events and the events will share an exhibition area. So no matter where your interest lies in growing your business and sales, there will be something of interest for you. The conference will consist of speakers offering content that will engage business owners, senior executives and key leaders from sales and marketing verticals. The event will showcase industry leaders from a variety of leading Irish and local companies from sectors such as Manufacturing, Internet and ICT, Retail, Hospitality and tourism, Utilities and energy, banking and Finance, Aviation, Fashion, healthcare , Real estate, Consumer goods, FMCG, insurance, consultancy services etc. Through case studies, hot topic presentation, technical presentations and workshops, these leading speakers can help equip you with the knowledge to improve your business and sales and marketing performance.

I hope you have an enjoyable and informative day at the RDS. This event will continue to be held on an annual basis and is completely reliant on the generosity of time of the key speakers, the support of  exhibitors and our corporate sponsors.
