CEOs rank World Water Week among ‘Most Valuable Platforms’ for decision makers

In a survey of 300 business decision makers (vice presidents and above) from large companies and mid-sized enterprises, World Water Week was named as a ‘Most Valuable Platform Gaining Importance’

The latest Burson-Marsteller Most Valuable Platforms Study has named World Water Week as a ‘Most Valuable Platform Gaining Importance’. The study was conducted in partnership with research firm Penn Schoen Berland (PSB) and included a quantitative and qualitative survey of 300 vice presidents and above (“business decision-makers”) from large companies and mid-sized enterprises.

The study interviewed business decision-makers about the value and challenges of various platforms – specifically conferences and events, corporate awards and rankings, and digital and social channels. The research sought to identify which platforms are most relevant today, and which emerging platforms companies are gravitating toward to reach and influence stakeholders in the future. Based on these perceptions, nearly 25% of respondents identified World Water Week as a platform gaining importance. Read more on the study here.
