NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - On September 26-27 at the New York Marriott Marquis, top minds in digital, media and technology will gather at OMMA Global New York to discuss the latest trends and implications of our ever-connected, consumer-empowered media landscape across the hottest online sectors -- mobile, social, video, direct and display.
