TFM 2003 will take place 11-12 February 2003, at The National Hall, Olympia, London, UK.

The free Keynote Sessions will provide a unique opportunity for the audience to hear from a panel of leading industry experts. The panelists will include:

Delegates will be given the opportunity to ask questions and challenge the experts on the topics discussed, discover what CRM can mean in practical business terms and understand how this can be used for competitive advantage. José Ferrao, European Managing Director for Peppers & Rogers Group will chair the sessions which will take place both days from 13:00 – 14.00 in the Apex Room, The National Hall, Olympia, London, UK.

Kate Watts, Conference Manager for TFM 2003 commented, "CRM has been the buzz-word for customer facing activity in the last few years, and while the business value of customer retention and loyalty is without question, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly how customer relationship management will develop and progress in the coming months and years.” Watts concluded, “By attending these free keynote debates at TFM 2003, delegates will be able to hear the views and opinions of those who are the driving force behind CRM and its development.”

Audience members can also pose questions or suggest discussion topics ahead of time by emailing the Conference Manager, Kate Watts at

TFM 2003 will also be introducing two enhanced focus areas into the event; Technology For Customer Service (TFCS) and Technology For Sales (TFS). By integrating these two areas into TFM 2003, the event will not only present the marketing community with the latest technology solution suppliers, but also provide a bespoke offering of all the relevant exhibitors and seminars to the customer service and sales communities.
