WHAT: Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and Multichannel Merchant host the 26th Annual Conference for Catalog and Multichannel Merchants (ACCM).
WHERE: Morial Convention Center,
WHEN: May 4-7, 2009
WHY: The journey of today’s customer from shopping to sale is more complicated than ever. A customer can peruse a catalog, research products on the web or view them in a retail store, and then make a purchase online. The constant shift between the catalog-web-retail-online worlds is controlled by the customer — and these days all customers are smart, savvy, and cost conscious. ACCM, the largest conference for 360˚ marketers, will help attendees gain a complete view of their customers. From creative design techniques, to tools that help drive online traffic, conversions, and sales, ACCM will provide proven methods that will bring stability to an unstable environment and offer strategies for growth in the tough times ahead.
