International Competitive/Market Intelligence Conference 2016:

Shaping the Future Through Competitive and Market Intelligence

It’s my pleasure to invite you to Europe’s leading competitive and
market intelligence conference!
The motto of this year’s conference is: “Shaping the future
through market and compe­titive intel­ligence”. We were plea­santly
surprised by a huge influx of high-quality sub­missions for our call
for spea­kers. Insight­ful, inno­vative, state-of-the-art. It was diffi­cult
to select only a few. See our agenda for an over­view and a compre­hensive description of all ses­sions! Are you ready to
check out the latest vendor of­ferings? Expect inno­vative software
and services provi­ding superior value for your organi­sation.

What’s in it for you?

“Connect” stands for various possi­bili­ties to
connect with your peers and share ex­perien­ces. Breaks, social events, our wall of fame, a job
board, and the networking sessions are all designed to enhance the networ­king oppor­tuni­ties.
Last year we intro­duced the “Uncon­fe­rence” ses­sion – a simple yet compel­ling format:
Par­tici­pants decide on special topics they want
to discuss in small for informal groups.

“Learn” is all about our sessions. Knowledge
sharing
is the name of the game. Corporate practi­tioners will share their experi­ence in
state-of-the-art case studies. Pas­sionate
CI/MI experts will challenge your mind­sets
with ins­piring impulse speeches and ex­perienced
CI prac­titio­ners will pro­vide in-depth
under­standing of key CI methods and tech­niques.
Finally our scientific track offers a unique
per­spec­tive in academic research.

“Grow” your knowledge, grow your network and
finally develop your career! As Amir Fleishmann,
one of last year’s par­tici­pants, stated: “ICI’s
International Compe­ti­tive Intel­ligence Confe­rence
is truly the center of com­peti­tive and market
intel­ligence in Europe”.
