The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is here to stay; it’s a journey, not a destination that requires compliant policies, robust processes and continuous evaluation.

The 25th May enforcement date represented just the beginning of GDPR compliance for all businesses, large and small. 

Organisations need to sustain their compliance process over time – this is the best way to take people with you on your business journey.

Steve Wood, Deputy Commissioner for Policy at the ICO

Wherever you are on your journey, The Future of Marketing: GDPR and the ePrivacy Directive, is the essential guide to achieving ongoing compliance for any business handling and processing personal data of an EU citizen.

Now, more than ever before marketers need to understand how to achieve the lawful, profitable and ethical use of personal data within a highly regulated environment. Marketing professionals are expected to fully comply with GDPR, or risk facing severe sanctions for failure to do so.

GDPR isn’t the only data law marketers need to embrace; the proposed changes to the EU ePrivacy directive could have a significant impact on cookies and other tracking technologies widely used to target and deliver online advertising.

Our team of leading data protection and privacy experts will deliver a series of in-depth presentations, case studies and panel discussions designed to provide advice and actionable steps to deepen the understanding of what it means from a marketing perspective. We shall explore the impact on marketing processes and provide an indication of the future landscape.


  • The new marketing landscape

  • Legitimate interest

  • Consent

  • GDPR & ePrivacy Directive 

  • Data security

  • Case study of effective GDPR campaigns
