This transition, driven by data, analytics, and digital tools, is happening at warp speed. Just a couple years ago, physical interactions like attending roundtables, visiting trade shows, and taking part in conferences absorbed a third of a B-to-B marketing.

The pandemic brought all that to a swift end. Artificial intelligence replaced handshakes as a more strategic way to capture leads. While events are returning and will always have a role in B-to-B marketing, even the best in-person interactions won’t have the same scalable ROI as the targeted power of data.
