Marketing Leadership Forum 2023

May 16 - May 17


Leading Marketing During Volatile Times

Momentum ITSMA’s annual Marketing Leadership Forum has long served as a vital resource for marketing leaders to gather with peers and refresh their thinking for the challenges and opportunities ahead. This is a hugely popular event, in the stunning location of Napa, CA.

Our Forum brings together a select group of senior marketers to learn and network around some of the biggest challenges marketers are facing today, including:

  • Contending with resource constraints (budgets and staff)
  • Measuring and communicating the impact of marketing
  • Prioritizing and narrowing focus

At this annual event, we share findings from our industry-leading Client Buying Index research and talk about what ‘growth investors’ are doing to achieve market-beating growth in volatile times.

If you’re a senior marketer looking to grasp opportunities, share knowledge, and connect with peers who truly understand the unique challenges you face, don’t miss next year’s Marketing Leadership Forum!

Dates for 2024 will be announced soon!


View our agenda from this past year to get familiar with our program’s schedule and topics.

Highlights include:

  • Strategies to Win in 2023: Mobilizing Teams for Growth Acceleration, a fully interactive discussion of what it takes to mobilize teams to accelerate growth, exploring the critical strategies, challenges, and innovations to choosing the right path and getting the most from our teams in today’s hyper-challenged environment.
  • How to Meet the Cautious Buying Team with Confidence, which provides highlights from Momentum ITSMA’s Client Buying Index research on buying behavior and how you can leverage new insights for growth.
  • Panels featuring marketing and ABM leaders with a focus on being agile, growth-oriented, and working through today’s challenges.
  • Keynote presentations by leading marketers on Marketing as a Growth Engine and Integrating Brand as Part of Sports Sponsorships to Support a DEI & CSR Agenda.
  • The Role of Diversity & Inclusion in Marketing Leadership, a look into gender bias and empowering women to break the glass ceiling with some of marketing’s most dynamic female leaders.
