The partnership is one of a select few that ISBA have established with relevant suppliers to help deliver the ISBA agenda. Marketing effectiveness is a key item on the ISBA manifesto.

The aim is to reveal insights, educate ISBA members and raise industry standards, to help both ISBA members and Ebiquity clients ensure that they can achieve accountability of their marketing investments.
