CM Group, the leading provider of world-class technology solutions that allow marketers to build stronger and deeper relationships at every stage of the customer lifecycle and serve more than 40,000 customers worldwide, announced that its annual Signals conference is returning this month. The 2022 virtual video event will take place the week of October 24th featuring insights directly from the CMOs, CEOs and global analysts who are shaping the future of marketing, including those from such industry-leading brands as PepsiCo, TGIFridays, Chipotle, The Atlantic, Brilliant Earth and many others.
The CM Group will explore the successful relationship marketing strategies from small business marketers to global enterprise brands using zero-party data to better engage, acquire, personalize, and build loyalty with consumers now and in the future through more than 30 sessions including keynotes, panels, and case studies across retail, CPG, media and publishing, restaurants, sports, and more. Signals 2022 will address these issues through a combination of participant roundtable conversations, expert analysis, and thought leadership ideas from those who are leading the way in relational marketing today. Attendees will spend the entire evening delving deeper into subjects, lessons learned, and analysis than the narratives that only touch the surface.
“Signals 2022 will not only be the most educational relationship marketing conference marketers will attend all year, it will be entertaining as well,”
“Forget the dry PowerPoint presentations and talking heads droning on with the same stock platitudes you get with other conferences. Signals 2022 is an event for marketers by marketers with engaging content from some of the biggest global brands and thought leaders. You can’t talk about engagement without being engaging.”
Tim Glomb, VP of Content at CM Group.
