IDSD 2014 Celebrates 10th Anniversary With Expanded Conference Program

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2014) -  Before the first Tweet, the first Pin, or the first photo Instragram-ed, there was Interactive Day San Diego. Now, after a decade of bringing the world's digital thought leaders together in Southern California, IDSD, the West Coast's Must-Attend Digital Marketing Event, has finalized its largest conference program ever for 2014, including its first ever-professional certification program.

"Chronicling 10 years of digital changes and trends has taught us one critical lesson, blink, and you're going to miss the next big thing. That's why we're so passionate about bringing the country's top digital thinkers together for one must-attend conference," says Tonya Mantooth, Mantooth Studios and current president of the San Diego Ad Club.

Headlined by Aaron Shapiro, CEO of acclaimed digital agency HUGE, the 2014 speaker roster includes an all-star cast of digital heavy weights including speakers from Google, Forrester Research, and advertising institution The One Club, along with principals from MOZ, Mindgruve, Kenshoo, Exact Target, Piston and Blitzmetrics.

For 10 years, IDSD attendees left with a wealth of new knowledge, insight and inspiration. This year, they can leave with something else: a professional certification from Interactive Day San Diego, and an instant boost to their digital marketing credentials. By attending a specific program track, and passing a certification exam, conference attendees will be IDSD certified in the following areas: data & analytics, design & development, technology & trends, marketing & SEO, content & social media

Putting digital theory into action, for the third consecutive year, IDSD will also feature the newly branded PitchTech -- a hotly contested competition giving tech and digital entrepreneurs the chance to launch their business on the biggest stage in technology. This fast-paced, dynamic competition brings twelve top up-and-comers together to deliver a three-minute pitch and face off for valuable investor backing, all live at IDSD on May 16th. The IDSD audience will vote for the company they want to see win Best Startup and $5,000 in backing from sponsor Procopio.
