  1. Influence

Influencer marketing is hot, hot, hot. Who can you hand your brand to in 2017? Check out how to use micro-influencers to build brand engagement.

  1. Collaboration

Silos get busted in 2017. Up springs a collaboration chorus featuring HR, marketing, sales, PR, customer service – and community –  together to broadcast the B2B brand experience in 360 surround sound in 3D: digital, direct and dynamic.

  1. Event Engagement

B2B event budgets will expand beyond the display costs into funding live engagement opportunities to introduce a spectrum of opportunities before, during and after the event. Influential speakers become corporate spokespersons.
