Going to DMA2014? See You There

Conferences are all about sharing insight. And that’s exactly what the Direct Marketing News team is planning to do at DMA2014.

We’re hosting three Town Square sessions on can’t-miss topics: privacy, email, and marketing technology. The panelists for the email and privacy sessions are thought leaders in their respective areas who not only have their share of opinion, but also the expertise and data to back up their views. Judges for our “Elevator Pitch Competition” know when companies walk the walk versus just talking the talk.

Here’s the DMN Town Square session schedule. We’ll see you there!

Sunday, October 26 at 4:00PM; Town Square, Exhibit Hall

Marketers need to be responsible data stewards to ensure that their brand earns and retains customer trusted needed to succeed today. Join us for the insight you need to do just that.
