Digital Marketing Event to Jingle Calgary's Bells

Part panel discussion, part holiday party, Calgary CMA partners with Digital Alberta for the event of the season

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2009) - The Canadian Marketing Association - Calgary Chapter and Digital Alberta have assembled some of Calgary's top digital marketing experts for what is sure to be a thought-provoking panel discussion on online marketing.

Companies like Critical Mass, Suitcase Interactive and Karo Group will discuss how successful online marketing now involves connecting directly with consumers. You'll hear how social media is allowing consumers to participate in the brands they love. You'll learn about the cool projects these leading companies have worked on, what has worked, what hasn't, and trends these leading marketers see coming.

Then the real fun begins as following this world-class speaker panel will be Calgary CMA and Digital Alberta's annual "Christmas Party and Shaker". We'll wet our whistles with libations, tantalize our palettes with an amazing spread of Chef Rusty's cuisine, and enjoy the spirit of the season, all the while raising funds for charity.

This year's charity of choice is HYTES - Helping Youth Through Educational Scholarships (www.hytes.org). HYTES' primary purpose is to provide educational scholarships to youth in developing countries to advance and grow themselves, contribute to their community and benefit society.

Funds will be raised through a silent auction; items for the auction can be donated to Lisa Hicks, CMA Calgary's Director of Membership (hicksl@shaw.ca).
