CIM members can qualify for Continual Professional Development hours through attendance of eBusiness Conference

Webcom 2001, in association with the eBusiness Conference and as the UK’s leading eBusiness exhibition, has secured the support of The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), the world’s largest professional body for marketing. The agreement with CIM allows its members to qualify for one hour’s Continual Professional Development (CPD), which leads to Chartered Marketer status, by attending a session of the world-renowned eBusiness Conference.

The Chartered Institute for Marketing works with the marketing profession, government, industry and commerce to develop greater awareness and understanding of marketing as a key driver of business success.

E-business and web development is falling more into the remit of the marketing department, and by working with CIM, Webcom ensures that the very professionals who are driving e-business forward are being supported. As well as this, marketing as a function can derive huge benefits from using the web – streamline business processes, find new customers in new markets, build lasting relationships with customers, reduce costs, increase response rates and turn customer data into business intelligence. By attending Webcom 2001, marketers can learn about these new technologies and build better marketing business strategy and processes.

“Webcom 2001 is delighted to be teaming up with CIM”, said Carl Wichman, Event Director, Webcom 2001. “Marketing as a function is increasingly being empowered with developing the web strategy in organisations, and it is through working with CIM that we ensure we are offering the right solutions and the right education to this highly informed audience.”

Claire Forbes, spokeswoman for CIM said: "Knowledge of e-commerce and the impact of the web is not an option for marketers in today's competitive environment. We are delighted to be supporting Webcom 2001 as part of our wider programme to help marketers keep one step ahead on e-commerce issues."
