Turn buying signals into opportunities
There’s a lot of excitement among marketers around intent data. And there’s still significant confusion. Like other categories, with intent there are nuances and complexities that go-to-market teams need to understand and consider. What’s fine for one group can easily be meaningless to another. What’s good for upstream use cases may offer little value downstream.
In the Intent track, you’ll explore this still-evolving category, examine what’s there today and realize what’s still needed to support your GTMs. Whether for sales, marketing or strategy, together we’ll investigate the key questions and provide the clear answers you’re looking for.

Perception acts as a lens through which we view reality. Our perceptions influence how we focus on, process, remember, interpret, understand, synthesize, decide about, and act on reality. In doing so, our tendency is to assume that how we perceive reality is an accurate representation of what reality truly is.
From April through July 2022, we ran our annual TechTarget Media Consumption study and asked a portion of the survey to 150 IT B2B Marketing Managers and Directors to see their perception of how IT buying teams move and research throughout the buy cycle. In this presentation, we look at the results and answer the question, “Are marketers’ assumptions of the buyer behavior really a mirror of what buyers’ are doing?”
Join us as we review this new European research and then talk directly to a panel of IT Directors on their experiences of the buying process.
