"Our choice to partner with DMA for this year's ECHO Awards Gala was a natural choice, as their progression and forward-thinking mentality mirror exactly with what our business is all about."
The ECHO Awards Gala was established in 1929 as the "Best in Direct Mail" contest. In 1979, due to interest and the ever-changing marketing landscape, the awards were changed to showcase all types media, not just direct marketing. Each year over 1,000 marketers participate, with each entry evaluated on creativity, marketing strategy and response, by a panel of professional industry judges from around the world. For this year's ECHO Awards Gala, comedian and late-night television personality Craig Ferguson will host the evening's festivities.

"Media convergence is a reality today," says Raisch. "With traditional and digital channels blending together into fully integrated campaigns we now see the world of marketing becoming far more complex and interesting. DMA 2010 is the perfect showcase to see this union of traditional marketing strategies blending with digital solutions."
