San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 19, 2009
The Society of Digital Agencies (SoDA) today announces the global expansion of SoDA with new member agencies in Brazil, Russia, Australia, France and the UK. The current round of organization expansion wasn't just limited to international firms, with many well-known U.S. digital agencies joining forces with SoDA as well. In total SoDA has welcomed 18 new digital agencies maturing the organization with a representation of over 30 top agencies worldwide.
Additional new members include: Bloc, Colossal Squid, Deep Focus, Evolution Bureau (EVB), GRAPE, Great Fridays, Gringo, IE, Mekanism, Obscura Digital, Profero, Rain, R/GA, SOAP Creative, Soleil Noir, Terralever, and Unit 9. The new members have been invited for their industry leadership and expertise to join an already elite group of SoDA members that includes: 360i, AgencyNet, Big Spaceship, Blitz, Domani Studios, Exopolis, Firstborn, GrupoW, IQ Interactive, Odopod, Schematic, Struck, WDDG and WhittmanHart.
SoDA has grown from its inception in 2006 when 13 agency executives got together in South Beach Miami for Mojitos and engaging conversation about the various aspects of the digital marketing business. SoDA members meet several times a year to discuss and propose initiatives for the business of digital marketing related to best practices, education, and advocacy. In addition to the annual members-only conference, SoDA hosts their signature "unConference" at key industry events each year, including Adobe's MAX Conference, SXSW, and the OneShow.
While SoDA has had an international following since its inception, it began to see more and more international agencies attending industry events in the U.S., and in many cases solely to attend the SoDA unConferences. The result was an engaging dialog on the similarities and sometimes, great differences in the digital business overseas. These valuable conversations led to an acceleration of our membership expansion plans to bring a global perspective to our business.
The Society of Digital Agencies is the voice of digital marketing professionals with a mission to advance the industry through best practices, education, and advocacy. SoDA is a non-profit industry organization with Adobe Systems as its founding sponsor.
