In fact, the majority (87%*) of B2B marketers say in-person events are a critical component to their company’s success.
There are several ways to participate in an event but before you commit, consider the reasons why business people attend events:
Meet your customers and prospects face-to-face, teach a little for them to take away and give extra exposure to your product offering at one of the upcoming events from Woodworking Network.
