Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Digital printing innovator and print marketing guru will address the power of using multiple channels in marketing

Lexington, Kentucky USA - WhatTheyThink.com today announced that Barb Pellow, a digital printing and publishing pioneer and Group Director at research firm InfoTrends, will be presenting at the second annual Print CEO Forum scheduled for October 2nd and 3rd, 2010, in Chicago. This printer-only event is sponsored by manroland. Limo transportation to McCormick Place for Graph Expo will be provided on October 3rd. Registration details can be found at http://printceoforum.com.

"Marketers are increasingly facing a fragmented media landscape," said Pellow, "where the sheer number of channels available to the consumer makes planning the marketing mix daunting. Service providers, including printers, marketing services organizations and ad agencies, all face the two-pronged challenge of leveraging this broad and exciting mix to promote their own businesses as well as to help marketers be more effective with flat or declining budgets."

Pellow will address the following topics during the session:

  • Media dynamics in a multi-channel world
  • New technologies that are taking hold and changing the landscape
  • The benefits of multi-channel/cross-media marketing

"We just concluded a significant multiclient research project that delved into this topic with marketers, printers and agencies," added Pellow, "and I will be sharing some of the results of that fresh research as well."

"We are extremely pleased that Barb Pellow will be with us again this year at the Print CEO Forum," said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink. "Attendees will be able to benefit from her advanced strategic thinking and increased involvement with marketers and agencies. Her talk will leave the audience with multiple actionable items they can put to work right away for their own benefit and that of their customers."

"While this is a printer-only event," said Davidson, "we are pleased that manroland has agreed to be our sponsor this year, allowing us to grow this exclusive event and make it even more valuable to attendees than last year."
