Why join our network

The Marketing Society is a progressive global community of senior marketers whose purpose is to empower brave leaders.

Since 1959, we have grown into an influential network of 3000 members across our seven hubs in London (HQ) Scotland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, India and New York. Our membership profile is predominantly client-based (over 70%) covering a wide range of sectors, including many international brands such as Apple, Barclays, Dimension Data, HSBC, IHG, L’Oréal, Mars, Samsung, Unilever, Vodafone and Wells Fargo.

Everything we do is through a brave lens – pushing boundaries, tackling taboos, providing comfortable spaces to have important conversations and building meaningful connections. We speak up, inspire one another, share best practice and discuss the challenges and opportunities we face. We work together to make our industry better for business and better for the world around us.

Attend our world-class global programme of events, access the latest thinking online, including over 10 years of best-practice award-winning case studies. Have your work recognised as part of our Brave Awards and Star Awards, competing against the best of the best, receive complimentary copies of Campaign and Marketing Week plus our own publication EMPOWER. Progress your and your team’s careers via professional development - such as our Marketing Leaders Programme - and get discounted tickets to global industry events.
