The meeting of like minds

Why Marketing in Maritime?

Many companies struggle to properly harness modern marketing techniques and embrace advances in analytics, monitoring, social media and other digital applications. Marketing in Maritime brought marketing leaders from all industries together for the first time to share best practice and to discover how the most effective marketing platforms can then be applied successfully in a B2B maritime environment.

Designed to inspire

Benefits of attending

The first event took place in the UK on the 17-18 April 2018 and started the hub for forward thinking dynamic professionals involved in marketing to discover new ideas, new techniques and network. The feedback received was overwhelming and has created a marketing edge for those involved allowing attendees to come away with the new knowledge and ideas, which they were able to bring back into their everyday working lives.

Time to talk marketing and figure it out

“Marketing is changing. Content marketing, marketing automation, native advertising and ever changing digital advertising formats and measuring tools – are all revolutionising the way we do business and how we generate leads and brand awareness. The maritime marketing scene needs thought leaders in the industry to take it by the horns and bring it into the new digital world – this event will showcase those leaders who will open the door and show you the way!”
