Integrated Marketing presented by NBC Universal

This event is over.

Integrated Marketing ranks as a top concern among client-side marketers. The development of new communications and the evolution of traditional communications have shifted power from the marketer to the consumer. This shift has created enormous opportunities, providing marketers with the ability to better target their customers. However, the explosion of choice has also complicated the lives and practices of marketers, creating massive challenges for effective integration.

Discover how top marketers such as The Dial Corporation, T-Mobile, Live Nation, and Outrigger Enterprises Group develop, execute, and evaluate their overall marketing communications strategy based on consumer insight. Join us at Universal Studios Hollywood Theme Park where NBC Universal will present a fun and informative day as top client-side marketers will share best practices in Integrated Marketing and will include “additional park activities” after the conference. This is free to ANA members and limited to ANA members and invited guests.
