Annual survey on the financial performance of marketing services companies

Start date: November 28, 2018 5.30pm registration

Seminar to launch the 2018 annual survey on the financial performance of marketing services companies, now in its 28th year.

Keynote speaker – Sir Martin Sorrell

We would like to invite you to the launch of our 2018 annual survey on the financial performance of marketing services companies in the UK, being held on Wednesday 28 November.

The seminar will cover the key findings of the survey, analysing identified KPIs and trends within the advertising, digital, branding and design, PR, media buying and marketing and sales promotion sectors. Such areas include profit ratios, productivity ratios and staff costs and numbers, giving you unparalleled benchmarking insights.

Following the presentation of the results, we will discuss with Sir Martin Sorrell his vision for S4 Capital and his thoughts on the future of the industry.

We will end with a panel session – ‘Evolution or Revolution?’ Is the industry simply experiencing a continual evolution or are we facing a revolution in the way that consumers and brands interact and therefore the way in which agencies must work with their clients?.
