It's one of the few organizations that really spends time getting into activities that are of interest to marketers in the AEC and professional marketing services world.
Every time I leave an event I get ideas of how I can do my job better. I get more passionate and inspired by what other people are doing in the industry.
CSMPS plays an important role for professional service marketers to grow and learn. Their relevant, fresh topics draw staff from across AEC firms.
CSMPS brings together real people talking about real issues; it’s a breath of fresh air.
CSMPS has helped me tremendously! Without CSMPS, I would not be where I am today. It is an amazing network.
Belonging to CSMPS is a must if you want to connect with, and market to, the professional services community in Vancouver.
