A/E/C Visionaries Forsee the Future.  On behalf of the SMPS Foundation, Marketivity developed a summary of over 43 interviews with SMPS Fellows regarding their insights and predictions about the future of marketing professional services, the potential impacts of changing market forces on our industry, and how marketers and their firms can best prepare for the future. The Fellows are a distinguished group of strategic visionaries dedicated to leading their firms into a changing tomorrow and developing robust strategies, no matter what the future may hold. The report includes intriguing insights and observations not only on the future of A/E/C marketing but also the future of the profession as a whole.
