DM Days 2009 New York Conference & Expo Offers Greater Concentration on Digital Marketing
February 25, 2009 — The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) today announced a bolder, better 2009 DM Days New York Conference & Expo. DM Days is set to take place June 16-18 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.
DMA’s recent “Integrated Marketing Media Mix” report found that marketers are integrating their media campaigns, adding email and other digital media in ever-increasing numbers to their pre-existing, offline media, which remain extremely important to the success of fully integrated campaigns. The 2009 DM Days New York Conference & Expo includes five new and improved educational tracks with over 30 sessions, four special intensive workshops, a search engine strategies training session, and two new pavilions. DM Days New York is the place to learn about new directions in the marketing community as well as leading-edge tools and techniques from experts on the cusp of innovative marketing.
“This year attendees will see a programming change that truly reflects integrated marketing, as DMA brings together a seamless blend of digital marketing with traditional, tried and true strategies,” said Rachael Feigenbaum, DMA group show director. “As marketing becomes more integrated it is important for companies to find their perfect mix of channels. DM Days is the place to find out what’s hot right now and how to make it work for you.”
