We've been planning this for some time … and now I am really excited to be able to announce a really cool Marketing event in Tokyo:

Event Theme: Engagement — Marketing's New Imperative For Success

Date: July 9, 2008 (from 1.30pm to 5.30pm)

Cost: ¥25,000 per person

Venue: Aoyama Diamond Hall

FYI – Aoyama Diamond Hall is directly connected to Omotesando Station, Exit B5

(Ginza Line, Hanzomon Line, Chiyoda Line)

Speakers at this event are:

(1) Forrester Research — Senior Analyst, Brian Haven (with Japanese simultaneous interp.)

(2) Uniqlo Direct — Director, Katsube Kentaro (in Japanese)

(3) Forrester Research — Principal Analyst, Kerry Bodine (with Japanese simultaneous interp.)

(4) Forrester Research – Senior Analyst, Jonathan Browne (in Japanese)

Kerry and Brian will be visiting from the US, where they have presented extensively on the theme of engagement and how to create engaging experiences for customers. If you had a chance to attend the Forrester marketing forum in Los Angeles in April, then you will have had a chance to hear them speak on this theme.

This is going to be a terrific event. I hope you will participate.
