Second Annual Email Evolution Conference Provides Email Immersion
January 28, 2009 — The Email Experience Council (eec) and the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), together will host the second annual Email Evolution Conference, the event for email marketers, February 9-11 at the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale, Arizona.
As challenges continue to affect the entire marketing community, many companies are looking to cut costs. As a result, they are immersing themselves in email, which is quickly becoming the “go-to” tool as they attempt to power through these tough economic times. According to DMA’s 2008 “Integrated Marketing Media Mix” report, when marketers were asked to project how they will use media in the future, they projected a continuation of the media trends of the past three years — in other words, increased employment of digital media with a steady use of offline media. An overwhelming, eighty-one percent of respondents, expected an increase in email use — and that was before the extent of the weak financial situation was fully understood.

“Email consistently delivers an impressive ROI and marketers need to be smart with every dollar they spend,” said Rachael Feigenbaum, DMA’s group show director. “This conference could not have come at a better time. The actionable strategies and solutions, in-depth research, and insightful forecasts will help everyone from the beginner email marketer up to the pro prepare for an unclear future. It makes practical business sense.”
The Email Evolution Conference helps attendees stay ahead of the competition with not only its first-rate keynote presentations, but its comprehensive educational sessions as well.
