Building professional relationships is essential for any business that wants growth and success. But for B2Bs whose lifeblood depends on leads, networking is imperative to survival. Lead generation is the most important goal of 91% of B2B marketers. It is also where 53% of marketers spend at least half of their budget.
Attending B2B networking events is a great way to meet potential clients and referrals to grow your lead pipelines. It also allows you to market your brand, collaborate with experts, establish your position as an industry leader, and gain new strategies and insights for growth.
The B2B networking scene has met significant challenges and transformation for nearly three years since the pandemic. Thanks to advanced technology, many networking events, conferences, and similar opportunities continue amid lockdowns and social distancing requirements.
Now that nearly all countries have reopened and lifted mobility restrictions, it’s time to go back out there and mingle with like-minded business leaders and B2B professionals across industries.
To help you take advantage of new learning, engagement, and collaboration opportunities, SuperStaff collates relevant upcoming B2B events for all levels of sales, marketing, and business professionals.
