Introducing a Marketing and Sales Conference focused on Expansion

While you can find tons of books, webcasts and conferences telling you how to win more new business, there is little-to-no-help for mastering the existing customer commercial conversations.

But, that is all about to change with the 1st Annual Customer Expansion Marketing and Sales Conference presented by the International Journal of Sales Transformation and Corporate Visions. The conference is taking place on the 25th of September 2019 at the Altitude 360 (Atmosphere Venues) in London.

Bringing together both business leaders and senior academic researchers, this complimentary conference promises to be authoritative, objective and informative.

Dedicated to helping you to improve your success in the four acute commercial moments associated with your customer success programs, this conference will be jam-packed with original research, scientifically backed messaging approaches and delivery skills, and stories from real-life practitioners.
