BMA Launches First Ever International “Go and Grow” Roadshow Series

Multi-City Tour for Marketing Professionals to Visit Seven Major Cities in 2012

In honor of its 90th anniversary, the Business Marketing Association (BMA) today announced the launch of its first-ever roadshow event series, Go and Grow for marketing professionals.  Kicking off on May 17 in Beijing, Go and Grow extends BMA’s acclaimed annual international conference and is designed to help business to business (B2B) marketers share and learn from each other about effective strategies, tactics and creative ideas for growing their respective organizations.

Through a new format and approach, Go and Grow will expand the reach of BMA’s educational offerings by bringing together world class speakers in a series of dynamic, collaborative venues. The Go and Grow series will be hosted in seven different cities across Europe, China and the United States and will address key topics such as marketing integration, mobile marketing,  and global best practices.

“For over ninety years, the Business Marketing Association has committed itself to the education and thought leadership of marketing professionals through events, seminars and speaking opportunities,” said Al Maag, 2011-12 National BMA Chairman and Chief Communications Officer of Avnet. “We are excited to usher in the next era of BMA with the launch of the organization’s first international roadshow to further engage marketing professionals around the world.  We are committed to professional and career development at all levels, and we encourage all B2B marketers to attend.”

“Our chapters are the key to our success and these events will provide members with the opportunity to experience the value and insights from BMA in their own backyards,” said Tom Stein BMA board member and President and CEO of Stein + Partners Brand Activation.  “We feel this model will enhance the value of chapter programs and entice other members to become more involved.”
