Don't Miss the iMedia Agency Summit in December!
More than ever, the role of the agency in the ever-evolving interactive media space is changing. This December, you will have an opportunity to join more than 140 senior agency leaders who will gather at iMedia's Agency Summit to explore the latest trends, opportunities and challenges in digital marketing.
Since 2001 iMedia has been delivering a high-value three days of content and networking for the agency community, and more than ever the opportunity for agencies to share insight with each other and their supplier partners is vital. This exclusive, invitation-only summit features three full days of exciting keynotes, power panels, breakout sessions, roundtable discussions and iMedia's own One Minute Match-Up speed dating program. In between there will be great networking at meals and receptions.
Important Note: iMedia limits publisher/service provider attendance to ensure a high ratio of agencies, so space is limited.

"Going to iMedia is like going to the world’s biggest shopping mall. Most of our current partners, as well as potential partners are all in one place. It saves me weeks of meeting coordination. The only two things that suffer are my frequent flier accounts and my liver."
Allen Stern, VP, Media Director, San Francisco, Agency.com
"The iMedia Summit is an ideal place for media planners and buyers to establish better relationships with the publishing community. Our time is very limited during the average work day and the time we do spend with sales people is often rushed and formal. Because we are basically sequestered, in the nicest possible setting, iMedia gives us the time to establish deeper relationships."
