Saturday - Sunday, October 13-14

Part of the Leadership Weekend at DMA2012, the Strategic Summit is an exciting, two-day forum for senior-level and C-suite executives to come together and exchange ideas, share insights, voice concerns, and strengthen the business relationships that are so crucial to success. This year''s theme is "Marketing as an Agent for Organizational Change" and we will address the theme by looking at how Process, People, Platforms and Partners drive the Big Data Imperative and transform business decisions. With an ever increasing avalanche of data available, the Big Data Imperative establishes:

  • The value of the data we collect
  • The customer Insights/Intelligence that we have at our disposal
  • The delivery of these Insights/Intelligence to our audiences
  • The data we should collect and how we should govern the oversight and use of this data
  • The measurement of the value of data

Join us. It's just $899 to register for the Summit. Or, upgrade to a Full Conference or Pre-Conference, Conference & Exhibition registration package and the Summit will already be included. To register, click here.
