Theme: DRIVE

At the end of the day, our job is to DRIVE profits. Easier said than done! To do this, we must first look at driving traffic for both customers and prospects. We must drive conversation on all digital formats and drive activity with clear calls-to-action that matter. In this new world with so many new and shiny tactics that sometimes take our eye off the ball, we must understand what is driving profits – and what’s not. NEMOA’s directXchange conference will present new ideas and strategies that will guide how you drive both customers and prospects, what tactics to use and most importantly where to allocate your marketing dollars. You’ll be able SHARE important concepts, LEARN from experts and case studies and then CONNECT with others who are also reimagining new ground.

Topics we are looking for:
  • Analytics / CRM
  • Digital marketing
  • Mobile first website and email design
  • Catalogs (creative and circulation)
  • Channel Integration
We are seeking new ideas that help retailers and agencies alike decide how to best spend marketing budgets.  We want proposals that are new, fresh and help brands DRIVE growth opportunities. We’re especially interested and will favor those proposals which include case studies with a merchant brand speaker. Are you a B2B or B2C retailer who’s recently tried a new strategy or tactic, or an agency with a client who’s got a great case study? We’d love to hear from you!

Proposal Deadline Extended! Submit by Thursday, April 27th
