DMA Celebrates Advertising Week 2007, Hosting Special Events on Sept. 24
September 21, 2007 — Direct marketing today is truly an essential part of the advertising mix.

On Monday, Sept. 24, DMA will be helping to inspire young people to join the multichannel direct marketing profession. From 2 to 6 p.m., DMA will host two panels — “The Evolving Agency Relationship: Think Brand, Act Direct” and “Taking Digital to the Next Level: Building Relationship Through Greater Relevance and Efficiency” — followed by an International ECHO Awards Showcase and Reception.
DMA designed the afternoon to showcase to the world why the direct marketing process is an integral part of today’s marketing mix. DMA President & CEO John A. Greco, Jr., who will kick off DMA’s special afternoon, serves on the Advertising Week 2007’s Board of Directors.
