Having been the UK's most influential network of senior marketers since 1959 and expanding successfully into Hong Kong, Singapore and New York. We set our sights to the Middle East in 2016, lauching a hub in Dubai.
Our mission has always been to inspire bolder marketing leadership and, working out of Dubai, the aim is to become the place for discerning senior marketers to learn, develop and share best practice, mirroring that of our brilliant network in the UK and Asia.
With a programme of exclusive, world-class events, including our industry-leading Excellence Awards, prestigious Marketing Leaders Programme and our online Clubhouse - we aim to inspire and challenge wherever we go.
