With less than five weeks to go until the performance marketing industry descends to London’s Old Billingsgate for PI LIVE and co-located Influencer Marketing Show, it’s all hands on deck here at PerformanceIN HQ as we continue to work hard to bring you the best event possible. We want you to leave the show feeling excited and educated; using actionable insights to help steer your business goals in the right direction.

So what’s been the latest happenings from PI LIVE and IMS? Here’s our weekly update.

Keynote sessions previews

As we move closer to PI LIVE and IMS on October 15-16, we’ll be running a series of speaker Q&As and session previews to kick-start the excitement and discussion on what’s going to be an interactive couple of days.

First up are the Keynote session previews, sharing some insight into the kind of talks you can expect and look forward to at the two-day conference. Read our first preview of Day 1’s Keynote: Get It Done: Cutting Through The Corporate Bullshit on the Main Stage from 10.20-11.00, hosted by business leader and performer Cally Beaton, which will no doubt bring some practical actions to drive your business while providing a few laughs along the way.

App launch imminent

We recently updated you about the official PI LIVE app and we can happily say that the mobile app will be coming to you next week!

The app is your essential companion to keep track of everything that is PI LIVE and IMS across the two-day showcase. You can personalise your agenda so you can keep on top of your day-to-day, as well as contact and arrange meetings with other delegates attending the show and check out what’s hot at the show.

Keep your eyes peeled next week for the app launch on the PI LIVE website.

Surveys surveys surveys

Here at PerformanceIN, we do like a good survey and we have a couple from our event headline sponsors Webgains and Awin ahead of their respective sessions at the event next month.

In case you missed it, take a few minutes to answer Webgains survey here and fill out Awin’s survey, which aims to identify the biggest challenges and opportunities from global retail events (Black Friday, Singles Day, Cyber Monday).

IMS exhibitors

While there’s been a lot of talk of PI LIVE, the Influencer Marketing Show has been just as busy!

Following last week’s announcement that leading creative and influencer platform Takumi will be joining the event as sponsors of the networking drinks this October, the team will be presenting a session in the IMS Case Study Theatre located on the third floor of the Mezzanine. Led by the company’s CEO, Solberg Auðunsson, the session will run through how to project and manage your influencer marketing campaign performance on one of today’s most popular social app platforms – Instagram.

In addition to the case study theatre, we’re delighted to announce Shopping Links and Mikz Alliance as exhibitors for IMS, both respectively presenting at the show. Find out more about them and the agenda on the IMS website.
