October 19 & 20, 2017 – Sheraton on the Park, Sydney
With the theme, [i+U+WE] CONNECT, the 2017 ICON Australia & New Zealand Conference will celebrate the launch of our new brand with the spotlight on ‘connection’, and speakers and content bringing diverse backgrounds and perspectives, both from within and outside professional services.
In the B2B market, we know connection is essential to success. As relationships drive our business models, we increasingly seek to broaden and deepen our connections. We connect in order to deliver our services. We connect to offer insights. We connect to further our big picture business goals. And, of course, as professionals we connect through ICON with peers, thought leaders and market disrupters from whom we can learn and grow.
The conference will challenge you to reflect on how you and your firms connect with key audiences via initiatives across the full B2B engagement spectrum – marketing, communication, sales, business development and more.
