Why You Should Be at iMedia’s Brand Summit this September
Where can you go to meet more than 160 senior level marketing executives from major brand companies controlling billions of dollars worth of interactive marketing budgets?
Probably nowhere else other than iMedia’s Brand Summit, September 9-12, at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort.
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
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.

Jonathan Adams, VP, Director – Media, Digitas
Sean Cheyney, VP, Marketing & Business Development, AccuQuote
Jarvis Coffin, CEO, BURST! Media
