A strategy for communicating with specifiers [EVENT]

It is often the case that construction products are selected by more than just one influencer.

In this seminar, led by Chris Ashworth of Competitive Advantage, we will explore how to use insight to find your future construction customers and the communication channels available to engage with them in a changing market.

Designed for directors and managers with marketing roles, this seminar commences with an overview of the construction market and the drivers influencing industry specifiers.
