By all accounts the recent Content Marketing Show held in London in November was a stonking success and demonstrates the growing appetite for content marketing in Europe. Not only did it sell out of its (free) tickets within minutes but quite a few of its 350 or so delegates have been posting their conference thoughts online. As a recruiter in this niche area, we decided to collate as much of the conference wisdom as we could for for both content marketers and potential employers wanting to know more about content marketing.
