New York, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2012
Econsultancy (link: http://econsultancy.com) is partnering with the Society of Digital Agencies (SoDA) (link: http:// http://societyofdigitalagencies.org/) and five other marketing organizations to host JUMP (Joined-Up Marketing Perspectives) (link: http://cometojump.com), the first event dedicated specifically to the notion of joined-up marketing, which posits that to be effective marketers need to meld digital with traditional channels.
JUMP, to be held on May 23 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York, is designed to promote this new type of marketing—a hybrid of the latest multichannel campaigns featuring state-of-the-art technology and the most effective of tried and true methods of the last century.
The event will bring together more than 1000 forward-thinking, senior marketing strategists and practitioners from across the marketing spectrum, who will discuss best practices and future trends and implications for successful marketers to continue to thrive into the 21st century.
In keeping with the spirit of marketing organizations joining for the greater good of the industry, Econsultancy also recently partnered with SoDA to conduct the Digital Marketing Outlook Survey, part of The SoDA Report (http://www.slideshare.net/sodaspeaks/the-soda-report-11690932), an analysis of the state of the industry.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with SoDA again—this time as a JUMP partner,” says Craig Hanna, EVP-North America, Econsultancy. “We're looking forward to its expert contribution to what is shaping up to be an excellent program essential for any marketing executive who wishes to stay on top in what is proving to be one of the most rapidly changing industries in business history.”
“SoDA has forged a fantastic partnership with Econsultancy through The SoDA Report and we look forward to extending that collaboration and candid exchange of ideas on the future of our industry ,” says Chris Buettner, Director of Operations of SoDA.
SoDA will lead the panel, Agency Ecosystems that Work –What’s the Secret Formula?, which will examine how clients are crafting different types of agency relationships to elevate their digital (and overall) marketing efforts.
