Southport, CT (PRWEB) February 8, 2006
SiriusDecisions, the world’s leading source for business-to-business sales and marketing operational intelligence, has announced the launch of an annual conference for business-to-business sales and marketing executives. SiriusDecisions Summit 2006 will be held May 22 through May 24 in Henderson, Nev., with the theme “Integrating Marketing and Sales.” The conference will focus on how b-to-b organizations are solving the critical sales and marketing alignment issues that often hinder predictable growth.
“We are building on the success we have had with our quarterly Executive Advisory Services forums, and taking it to the next level so our attendees from across the country can meet face-to-face with their peers and share best practices,” said Richard Eldh, co-founder of SiriusDecisions and conference chair. “The event will address the major functions of sales and marketing as well as their key sub-functions, such as field marketing and inside sales that are essential to true integration.”
Tony Jaros, vice president of research added, “We continue to see sales and marketing functions operate at arm’s length. The successful alignment of these functions requires a consistent, multidimensional communications strategy; a systematic method for the collection and use of market intelligence; and general alignment in terms of sales and marketing goals, resources and processes.”

- The sales and marketing organization of the future
