23rd & 24th May 2013, Hogarths Hotel, Solihull



APSUYou have been invited to attend APSU’s emPOWERed Strategic Marketing Directive in Solihull on Thursday, 23 May and Friday, 24 May.



This event is aimed at strategic innovators, so we can work together to develop coordinated co-marketing campaigns. This will ensure that marketing funds build on past successes, and we will produce a strategic 12-month plan that will meet both partners’ and APSU’s objectives. We at APSU believe that marketing is vital to our joint success, and this event will allow you to impart your market and business knowledge to help us meet our mutual objectives as we strive to create a collective impact to promote our joint solutions.



The marketing briefings will provide an overview of APSU IBM, Cisco, Google and Vision’s current and future routes to market. The briefing will bring together IBM business line managers and directors, vendor director and marketing professionals from Vision Solutions, Infor, Interoute, Meraki and Google, and distribution representatives from Avnet, ISI and Arrow ECS. During this event, you will be able to influence and help create a strategic marketing roadmap that will build brand awareness and drive significant market penetration.
