Black Ink Hosts Entertaining Panel, Family Feud: B2B vs. B2C Marketing, at &THEN in Boston

DMA's Reinvented Annual Event Takes Place Oct. 4-6

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2015) -  Black Ink, the leading enterprise marketing performance ROI software, is pleased to announce that Black Ink President, Jeff Winsper, will be hosting a panel at &THEN, the Direct Marketing Association's (DMA) reinvented annual event. &THEN takes place October 4-6, at the Boston Convention & Exposition Center in Boston, MA.

The panel is based on the highly popular TV show, Family Feud, but with an industry twist. Show host, Jeff Winsper -- acting like Steve Harvey -- moderates a game show with differing opinions from a panel of marketing B2B and B2C heavyweights -- supported with survey results, just like the TV show. Winsper, an expert in marketing and analytics, has the wit that will have the crowd cheering and laughing. The panel will be Sunday, October 4th from 2:50 - 3:20pm in the Experience Zone.

"In today's marketplace, innovative thinking, unmitigated passion, and radical creativity aren't just nice-to-haves -- they're essential tools," said Paul A. McDonnough, Vice President of Events for DMA. "With &THEN, we've broken the mold of what an annual event should be -- and created an innovative, disruptive experience that will not only fulfill marketers' needs, but empower them to soar to new and unexplored heights. We are thrilled to have Jeff Winsper, a highly successful inspiring industry leader and trailblazer, speaking at &THEN."

"Survey said? I'm thrilled to bring this fun Family Feud style panel to the &THEN DMA event. Captivating and experienced marketers will join my panel to duke it out; and what better way for them to show their expertise but in a competitive game show," said Winsper.

In addition to a stellar lineup of presenters and keynoters ranging from IBM's visionary CMO Jon Iwata to social entrepreneur and movement starter Blake Mycoskie of TOMS, &THEN will immerse attendees in the latest information across the entire marketing field through six customized educational tracks, intensive workshops, awards ceremonies celebrating the best and most innovative achievements in the industry, and world-class entertainment featuring a private concert exclusively for &THEN attendees by the Goo Goo Dolls.
