SHERBROOKE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 30, 2013) - Saturday, January 26th was held the launch party in preparation for the Happening Marketing 2013, which will be held March 22, at the HEC in Montreal. It was a great opportunity for the 36 marketing students from the Faculty of Administration at the University of Sherbrooke, who will be competing in the event, to come together to launch the event. This year Kezber is the major sponsor of the Sherbrooke delegation.
Kezber specializes in Internet Marketing, Web Development, Custom Applications Development and IT Services. With offices in Sherbrooke and Montreal, Kezber has been in business for 17 years. Kezber is proud to encourage the young marketers of tomorrow.
The Happening Marketing is the largest interuniversity marketing competition in Eastern Canada. With 13 recognized universities attending, this event brings together more than 500 students passionate about marketing. The competition combines academic, sporting and social events. In the academic component, students must submit case studies in the following categories: marketing strategy, integrated marketing communications, relationship marketing, B2B and a quiz on current marketing affairs. Three members of the Sherbrooke team won the marketing case in the 25th edition of the Jeux du Commerce at the HEC in Montreal, held earlier in January. The Sherbrooke delegation is therefore very optimistic to come home with additional honors.
