WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - Eloqua Corporation, the leading supplier of automated demand generation applications and expertise for business-to-business (B2B) marketers, today announced that it has relocated its corporate headquarters to Washington, D.C. in conjunction with a broad expansion of its management team.
