Overview

Everyone is interested in innovation. What's new, what's changing how things are done, what's challenging best practice. So we created our Innovation Report to capture and document all that is new and innovative in the world of digital marketing.

Also, every year we run over 30 roundtables which bring together no more than 20 leading practitioners to discuss the latest challenges, opportunities, trends and best practice across a wide range of digital marketing and ecommerce topics.

Our analysts then write these up into our briefings — an excellent source of intelligence on the latest thinking. Best of all they are free to subscribers!
