Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
Marketing executives from Fortune 500 companies GM, Kimberly-Clark, and TIAA-CREF have already registered to attend the 9th Annual M2W® – The Marketing to Women Conference, April 15 - 17, 2013, Chicago Cultural Center. According to Jacinta Devlin, M2W® project manager, “They attend to learn how to increase their sales to women – who control 85% of all consumer purchasing in virtually every product category.”
“At M2W® they get the latest marketing to women research, case studies, workshops and peer to peer learning opportunities,” Devlin explained. “They learn what works and why. They learn how to use new techniques on every marketing channel from traditional media, PR and point of sale to newer channels like mobile and social media. It’s all designed to help them refine and improve their marketing to women efforts, which in turn helps them build better marketing ROI and brand equity.”
Devlin added, “Other early registrations include Harley-Davidson, Kimpton Hotels, BlogHer and the American Diabetes Association. It shouldn’t really be that surprising that so many different categories attend M2W®. They all recognize that women are the dominant force in consumer purchasing. After all, in the US women spend over $7 trillion annually plus they spend over $20 trillion globally. And everyone expects those figures to just keep growing.”
