GIA Brings Highly Recommended Market Intelligence Conference to New York

Global Intelligence Alliance (GIA), a global strategic market intelligence and advisory group, officially brings its highly recommended GIA Conference series to the United States.

Held between November 8-10 at The Park Central Hotel in New York City, the GIA Conference in New York aims to be the leading Strategic Market Intelligence event in North America by ensuring that participants:

  • Learn how leading companies apply the key success factors of World Class Market Intelligence to improve their competitive advantage.
  • Learn how to build a World Class Market Intelligence capability.

  • Understand how to integrate any Market Intelligence program with key decision-making processes.

  • Gain insights into Market Intelligence trends towards 2015, and what executives need to know about Market Intelligence in emerging markets.

"We discovered a significant need and demand in North America for events focusing on pragmatic ways of implementing world class market and competitive intelligence programs. Ever since we launched GIA’s World Class Market Intelligence Framework, we have been requested to organize an educational conference around the key success factors. This conference is organized to meet that need," said Jouko Virtanen, President for Global Intelligence Alliance North America.

In addition to case presentations, the GIA Conference will include interactive workshops and panel discussions on current hot topics in the area of Strategic Market Intelligence. The GIA Conference will focus strictly on delivering a best-in-class educational program. There will be no exhibition area or vendor/sponsor product presentations.

Key topics will include how to build truly world-class market intelligence capability, how to turn market intelligence programs into revenue generation and sales enablement functions, how to build foresight and capacity to anticipate competitive moves and how to make sure your market intelligence program is part of decision making.

“We will focus on sharing best practices that participants can take with them and start using. We won’t be providing theory; it is all about practice and education. Of the participants in our recent European conference, 100 percent recommend GIA Conferences. That is a strong testament to the exceptional quality of the GIA Conferences,” Virtanen added.
