SAN DIEGO, CA–(Marketwire – May 10, 2012) – Dozens of some of the most important companies in San Diego will be represented at the first-ever ART of Marketing conference on May 17, held at the UCSD Extension City University Center. Marketing experts from a broad range of disciplines are expected to comprise a full day of panels, speakers, training intensives and networking opportunities, offering attendees important insights into today’s best marketing practices.
“We have been working with community partners and our SDAMA members to determine the best topics for this inaugural conference,” says Kathy Townend, president of SDAMA. “That input, combined with the quality of the presenters involved, makes this conference extremely relevant to our audience, while also being a great value.”
