"As an event and marketing solutions company, our mission is to create engaging solutions for technology marketers.  It's been a privilege to work with Avnet and develop successful custom marketing solutions," said Paul Miller, CEO, UBM Tech.  "In these sessions we look forward to providing marketers with the key information they need to make their brands even more successful."

Create's global technology customer will discuss the success of their unique program.  On Wednesday, February 19 at 3:00 pm Ian Basey, Vice President Marketing, Avnet Electronics Marketing, Americas, will present "The Big Idea." Avnet Electronics Marketing partnered with Create on the Drive for Innovation program, a year-long, cross-country road trip focused on uncovering innovation in the electronics industry. This session will feature how to bring the "big idea" from imagination to reality and how career defining an experience it can be.

In addition, on Wednesday, February 19 at 2:00 p.m. Jonathan Vlock, Director of Client Marketing Strategy, UBM Tech, will present "The Buyer's Journey Is a Myth."  Vlock will discuss how prospects collect data about a company at every stage of the purchase process and why this means marketers must develop campaigns that drive prospects toward a purchase decision before and after their sales team gets involved. This session will seek to dispel some of the misconceptions around how B2B organizations purchase technology solutions, and outline a logical framework and strategy for how marketers can use personas and content to better align their efforts with the realities of modern day purchasing.
