Date IDM events Location
27 Nov 2014 The IDM Annual Lecture 2014 central London

STOP PRESS: The IDM Annual Lecture is a very popular event, so we offer a waiting list once the event is fully booked. Should you wish to be advised if a place becomes available for this year's Lecture taking place on 27 November, please email

Every one of our events, large or small, brings the unique IDM knowledge network to life. Whenever and wherever you join us, you'll:

  • Meet, learn from and debate with speakers who are the experts in their field
  • Mix with fellow professionals, build your business relationships
  • Stay in touch with the latest practices in direct and digital marketing
  • Revitalise your motivation for your work and career
  • Earn valuable CPD points towards the IDM, CIM and other schemes

A year-round programme offers two principal types of event:

  • Major annual events charting and predicting marketing's ongoing evolution: These 'red letter' events, including the Annual IDM Lecture, bring you top marketing speakers from around the world, high-profile personalities from inside and outside the profession — and the good company of your fellow professionals.
  • More intimate, regular events focusing on specific themes: If you're looking for updates on topical or specialist subjects, there are regular evening events. Whatever the occasion – a workshop to refresh your skills, a seminar on a popular theme or a thought-leadership masterclass for seniors — you'll find a significant social element to the proceedings.
