"After some research with the end users we have decided to concentrate on the return on investment as far as case studies and branding is concerned. We wanted to meet the needs of the client."
The forum will focus on issues including how to get a marketing budget approved from a board, how to maximise marketing and branding budgets, and return on investment measurements, Aghzafi added. Representatives from Al Jazeera Network, Yahoo, LG Electronics and other companies will also speak and hold workshops at the event.
