We’re less than two weeks away from the start of the 2011 PODi AppForum in Las Vegas, January 31-February 2. The forum is always one of my favorite conferences of the year, and this will be my second year as Chair of the Direct Marketing Track.
I may be a bit biased, but I believe if you use digital printing and marketing services you must attend the AppForum. It’s where you’ll get the latest market research, tools and the insight into digital printing to enhance your direct marketing campaigns.
Here’s a session summary for the Direct Marketing Track Presentations:
