How we promote TowerXchange Meetups (and why you should not miss this opportunity!)

The core of our promotional campaign is TowerXchange’s proprietary database of the top 35,000 decision makers in the global telecom tower industry

The TowerXchange database includes the management teams of 264 towercos who between them own 2,936,086 (68.2%) of the world’s 4.3mn towers and rooftops

We also maintain relationships with over 3,000 CXOs and Heads of M&A, Network Planning, Procurement and Tower Strategy at MNOs worldwide

TowerXchange is read by 2,015 individuals at over 600 investment firms, of which 116 have capital deployed in towers and is followed by 842 investment bankers and advisors

TowerXchange also maintains the world’s most exhaustive database of telecom infrastructure suppliers, from tower manufacturers, managed service providers, to RMS, site management platforms, access control and energy equipment and service providers

Every month TowerXchange adds an average of 700 new highly qualified members to our community through a combination of “pull” marketing via TowerXchange research, and P2P introductions and research within the tower industry

A total of 68 personalised emails with industry specific messaging were sent to our database to promote the TowerXchange Meetup Americas

Our email campaign is supported by a direct mail campaign to 300 selected VIPs, and by courtesy calls to over 1,000 key target attendees

A unique feature of our marketing campaign is the TowerXchange Americas Dossier – this annual publication collates and updates critical baseline data and includes the best interviews conducted throughout the year with key Central and South American industry stakeholders

We use Google Adwords to amplify the findability of the dossier, and other selected industry news and analyses, attracting new, qualified members to our community.
