Online Marketing Summit Announces 2010 Conference

Event Features New Partnerships With SES and ClickZ and Expanded Educational Offerings

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 4, 2009) - Social media, analytics, usability, design. New media requires new knowledge and tactics that can overwhelm even the most experienced marketers. The Online Marketing Summit (OMS), the only education-focused online marketing conference, is here to help. OMS2010 will be held in San Diego, California, from February 22 through February 25, with expanded offerings. In addition to speaker and panel events with leading industry experts, OMS will offer case studies, personalized one-on-one labs, advanced tactics roundtables and networking events -- in an environment free from exhibit booths and sales pitches.

Among the new offerings for OMS2010 are:

-- A new advanced-leadership track. Learn from a panel of thought leaders and experts who discuss cutting edge strategies and share advanced tactics.

-- Certification & training workshops. The Online Marketing Institute and the Wharton Interactive Media Initiative team up to offer a series of educational workshops.

-- Peer matching. Get connected to relevant peers through structured peer networking events, including breakfast roundtables and social events.

-- One-on-one expert labs. These consultation sessions allow individuals to work directly with experts in analytics, search, usability and email.

-- A new SES Forum Day dedicated to search marketing.

OMS is the only purely educational event of its kind. Over the course of four days, marketers receive a hands-on education on the best practices, tactics and strategies in social media, search, email marketing, lead/demand generation, analytics, usability and integrated marketing strategy. An actionable, educational approach gives attendees the tools they need to launch strategic, goal-oriented marketing plans. Additionally, marketers meet and network with experts and like-minded peers to expand their industry connections.

"OMS is unique for the fact that it educates marketers on all aspects of the online space," said OMS Founder, Aaron Kahlow. "With technology constantly evolving, online marketing can feel daunting to those who are used to more traditional practices, but the fact is that online isn't nearly as esoteric as people think. OMS's goal is to make online marketing accessible and understandable, as well as to give people the tools and strategies they need to immediately implement -- or upgrade -- their new media marketing plans."

OMS 2010 will feature speakers from great brands including: Walt Disney, REI, Planet Hollywood, AARP, Cisco, Yahoo! and other great brands.
