Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Matrix Solutions, the leading provider of Media CRM and Sales Analytics, announces they will be a sponsor of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation’s upcoming symposium “Selling in a Multiplatform World”. The symposium will take place at Temple University October 23, 2013 in Philadelphia, PA. The one-day program will focus on media sales and marketing and how both have evolved in today’s multiplatform landscape – detailing the challenges and benefits.
The symposium will feature a combination of both keynote and panel presentations from an elite list of executive speakers whom represent media sales and marketing throughout the industry. Panel programs include, ‘Mad Women’, 'One is Never Enough’ and ‘Women in Who Rule in Sales & Marketing'.
The number of women in a media sales role is growing as well as the billions of dollars in advertising sales that are generated annually. Managing that level of advertising sales becomes mission critical to any media company. As a provider of media sales systems, Matrix Solutions has recognized the growth and importance that media sales plays to a media company, whether it is newspaper, radio, broadcast, cable or digital. “At Matrix we understand the market, the growth, and the need to manage advertising sales as effectively and efficiently as possible across the entire media ecosystem at hand,” said Brenda Hetrick, Director of Marketing, Matrix Solutions. “The AWMF Symposia ‘Selling in a Multiplatform World’ is directly aligned with our vision for growth and commitment to the industry and therefore serving as a sponsor made sense.”
The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation has played a role in driving positive change for women within the media industry. “We are very excited for this symposium, the stellar agenda of content and speakers lined up, and to have Matrix Solutions as one of our sponsors,” said Kay Olin, Chair, Alliance for Women in Media Foundation. “Our non-profit organization is not only committed to supporting and empowering women in media sales, but advancing the influence and impact of women in all forms of media.”
