13 July 2011, London - Cognito, the specialist PR and marketing agency for the financial sector, today announced that it is hosting a free webinar for all companies planning to attend Sibos, the world’s premier financial services event, in Toronto this year.

To most organizations in the B2B financial services sector, Sibos is the most important event in the marketing calendar. To many, it’s also one of the most significant investments.

“Many are skeptical about the business value of social media. The reality is that, at an event like Sibos, an effective social media program can supplement your traditional marketing activities to deliver significant and measurable returns.” says Tom Coombes, CEO, Cognito

To discuss what they think represents best-practice in terms of social media use in B2B financial services, Coombes will be joined during the webinar by a leading financial journalist, a B2B marketer and a member of SWIFT's Innovation team.

The panel will be taking questions from the audience live via Twitter. Anyone wanting to ask a question need only tweet it using the #CogSM hashtag.
