ABOUT AKAM

Key Account Management is distinctly different from sales and requires its own space and professional organisation. While selling certainly contributes to the discipline, KAM involves a far wider range of knowledge and activity, and this difference demands recognition.

  • KAM papers and articles
  • Tools and diagnostics
  • Expert videos
  • Free member meeting registration

AKAM is forging links across the world between practitioners, academics and consultants, to the benefit of all.

Currently hosted by Technological University Dublin in Ireland, AKAM is an independent body representing the KAM industry in Europe and worldwide.
