It’s fantastic to welcome Manchester Metropolitan University as headline sponsor for the event. The Benchmark Search Conference represents our commitment to the principle of knowledge sharing

With an MSc in Digital Marketing due to begin in September 2016, Manchester Metropolitan University is clearly committing to the industry – one of the UK’s fastest growing – as both a desirable option for employment, and as having come of age sufficiently for its practices and work to be measured academically. There could be no company, and no conference, better suited to promote this commitment than Click Consult and Benchmark Search Conference 2016.

David Edmundson, Principle Lecturer in Digital Marketing and Enterprise at the University, was firm in outlining the University’s aims:

“MMU are pleased to sponsor this year’s Benchmark Conference. As the North West’s leading university for digital marketing education, we’re keen to ensure we’re involved with our industry partners in the ongoing learning and development of our fellow professionals in the field. 2016 is an important year for us – we’re bringing our new full-time MSc Digital Marketing Communications programme to market, built on our extensive 9 years delivering a part-time professional programme in the subject.

"This will add to, and improve, the talent field and we’re keen to ensure we have great relationships through this conference to support our students and our industrial colleagues alike.”

While Click Consult founder and CEO Matt Bullas stated:

“It’s fantastic to welcome Manchester Metropolitan University as headline sponsor for the event. The Benchmark Search Conference represents our commitment to the principle of knowledge sharing – a principle embodied by this respected institution.The North of England is leading the field in digital marketing, and it’s tremendous to see its Universities following suit.”

Manchester Metropolitan University, in addition to their sponsorship, will also be exhibiting at the conference alongside event sponsors Act-On, who will also be speaking at the event.
