This year’s Eurocom Worldwide
annual member conference was held in Milan, Italy, on Friday, 11th March 2016. A total of 28 delegates from across Europe, the US and Latin America, the Middle East and Asia attended the conference to discuss current communications trends and cross-border collaboration.
Members confident about the year ahead
88% of the member agency leaders attending the conference expect business in 2016 to be the same or even better than in 2015, continuing the growth track experienced in 2015. And according to the survey almost 60% of Eurocom members regard digital communications strategy development as the key challenge facing agencies in 2016, followed by the recruitment and retention of experienced communications talent.
Robin Baker, Chairman of the Eurocom Worldwide network: “Our global network is in excellent shape – during recent years the level of business referrals between our members and the business growth experienced by most of our local partner agencies is very encouraging. Furthermore, we gained several new network members in 2015, among them Guide Communications
in Turkey as well as three new member agencies in Argentina, Columbia and Costa Rica.”
