FREE 2014 Law & Marketing Update Event – Hurry, places booking fast!

Speechly Bircham external shot of buildingUK-based companies face a major shake-up in how they conduct consumer sales and marketing activities over the next 12-months in the wake of a raft of new laws and regulations emanating from the UK and European Union (EU).

With a closer focus being taken by UK and European legislators on the individual’s right to privacy, marketers face one of the toughest marketing regulatory regimes in the world.

So keeping up-to-date with a torrent of guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office and ever more prescriptive drafts of the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation is now essential in order to stay one step ahead of the competition.

About the Law & Marketing Committee, Worshipful Company of Marketors

There’s been a seismic change in the sales and marketing legal landscape that’s transformed the way we work, irrespective of whether this is in the public or private sector. The EU has effectively rewritten the law on privacy, human rights, data protection and marketing across the web and mobile networks. And more changes that are critical to modern marketing management are in the pipeline. Keeping up-to-date on all these changes can be difficult and very time-consuming. The Law and Marketing Committee help to steer Company Members through the legal minefield of key EU and UK laws. 

In addition, the Law and Marketing Committee also examines whether the marketing profession is upholding the ‘spirit’ of what the law intended by embracing ethics, principles of fairness, respect for the individual and upholding the highest standards of professional conduct expected in our profession and will play a leading role within the City of London in influencing that important debate.
