San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
Online Marketing Summit Founder Aaron Kahlow today announced that the 2009 Online Marketing Summit (OMS) will be held in San Diego, California, from Wednesday, February 4 through Saturday, February 7. The premier educational event for marketing professionals, OMS brings together the best minds in online marketing to educate all marketers on the importance and benefits of incorporating online marketing into any company strategy.
OMS is the only purely educational event of its kind. Over the course of four days, marketers will receive a hands-on education on the best practices, tactics and strategies in all domains of online marketing that they can incorporate into their own marketing plans. Additionally, marketers meet and network with experts and like-minded peers to expand their industry connections. New to this year's event are the Online Marketing Certification Programs and special Expert Strategy Tracks that focus on both B-to-B and B-to-C case studies.
"I started OMS because I sensed that there was a real desire on the part of marketers to get a true education in the online world and get the in-depth how-tos of executing that was missing from so many industry events," said Kahlow. "Since then, the event has taken on a life of its own as marketers have spread the word about its truly unique educational and peer-to-peer (i.e. no salespeople allowed) environment. I don't think I'm being immodest when I say there really is nothing else like OMS out there."
The 2009 OMS will feature hands-on workshops, on-site usability and search engine optimization labs, thought-leader presentations, and peer-group collaboration sessions.
Topics will include:
• Social Media Business Strategies
