“As the world gets smaller, knowing how to work in different markets worldwide has become crucial to connected marketing. It’s important to know the ins and outs of international marketing and that’s exactly what attendees are going to be immersed in at Connected Marketing Week as a whole and the ClickZ International Marketing Forum in particular,” said Hunt. “If you are involved in international marketing with Asia-Pacific and Latin American targets, the International Marketing Forum will help you enrich your marketing program.”

Connected Marketing Week

The inaugural Connected Marketing Week is a gathering of interactive marketing events aimed to educate marketers on every aspect of the digital industry. It was announced this week that VeriSign has signed on as a sponsor of Connected Marketing Week.


Because marketing today requires an advanced understanding of how consumers and audiences are connecting, sharing their passions and influencing others, the program for Connected Marketing Week contains presentations and panels focused on the basics, such as pay-per-click (PPC) and search engine optimization (SEO), and newly designed sessions exploring the search and social media convergence. In addition to thousands of attendees, over 100 companies will be exhibiting their latest products, services and technologies.
