According to a B2B Marketing International survey, 72% of U.S. companies see innovation as one of their top 5 current business challenges, but still plan on putting 56% of their marketing efforts into branding/marketing communications. So how can you keep your marketing team on the cutting edge of innovation?

At #B2BTalks on November 8, Rafi Kretchmer, VP Marketing at Panaya; Tomer Zuker, Security & Systems Marketing Manager at IBM; and David Geffen, Marketing Director, Back Office Solutions at NICE will share how they are running innovative B2B marketing campaigns or initiatives that boost business results. Join us to get inspired and learn how to take your marketing programs to the next level in 2017.

In addition, Inbal Arieli, VP of Strategic Partnerships at Start-Up Nation Central, will discuss how today’s kids are raised to be tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, and what it is about Israel that breeds innovation and entrepreneurship.

Register to receive a free beer and join us Tuesday, November 8, 6pm at Zoifer – Raoul Wallenberg 24. Networking and refreshments at 6pm, panel starts at 7pm.
