Why Should You Be at iMedia’s Brand Summit This February?
Where can you go to meet more than 120 senior level marketing executives from major brand companies controlling billions of dollars in interactive marketing budgets? Probably no where else other than iMedia’s Brand Summit, February 4 – 7, 2007, at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point, Bonita Springs, Florida.
Now in its sixth year, the Brand Summit’s primary goal is to bring together brand marketing executives with peers and solution providers to share ideas and tackle hard issues surrounding the integration and application of interactive media in their overall marketing mix. iMedia’s Brand Summits deliver a dynamic combination of session content featuring top-level speakers and numerous opportunities for networking between marketers and solution providers in an exclusive, invitation-only environment.
“There are many opportunities for conferences and events for me to go to, but I have really narrowed it down to iMedia…Really, this is the cream of the crop in the interactive world."
---- Carol Kruse, Group Director, Interactive Marketing, Coca-Cola
The iMedia Brand Summit is by invitation only and space is limited.
Content That Tackles Timely Opportunities and Challenges
As with every Brand Summit, an Advisory Board of industry executives meets with iMedia staff months before the Summit to map out the conference theme and major issues to be addressed. The goal is to create a program that not only provides targeted, actionable insight on the industry’s current issues, but does so in a way that encourages all attendees to participate and contribute to the dialogue.
The Advisory Board is composed of following industry thought leaders:
Sean Cheyney, VP, Marketing & Business Development, AccuQuote
Jarvis Coffin, CEO, BURST! Media
Clark Kokich, President, Avenue A I Razorfish
Tom Lynch, VP of Marketing Strategy & Planning, Avenue A I Razorfish
Scot McLernon, SVP, Sales, CBS Digital Media
Nick Pahade, President, Denuo
Erica Schultz, Online Advertising Manager, The Home Depot / Home Depot Direct
Additional advisors on each Summit Board: iMedia’s Rick Parkhill, Kurt Indvik, Brad Berens, Masha Geller and Upstream Group President Doug Weaver.
