DMA Southern California and Partners Offer One-Day Packages to ConferenceAugust 21, 2009
SAN DIEGO, CA—Aug. 21, 2009—The national Direct Marketing Association’s annual conference and expo attracts thousands of marketing and creative professionals each year. Through a special program with the national DMA, DMAsc, the regional affiliate in Southern California, and its partners have put together a comprehensive and inexpensive one-day package to provide fun, education and networking for marketing and creative professionals, as well as for print and marketing service providers, at the DMA09 Conference on Monday, October 19, 2009, at the San Diego Convention Center.
“A Day at the DMA” Packages include:
• Round Trip Train Fare from LA’s Union Station or OC’s Santa Ana Amtrak Station
• Admission to Martha Stewart’s Keynote Presentation
• Admission to any one Conference Session in the morning time slot
• Box Lunch with Lunch Presentation on Personalized URLS, sponsored by MindFireInc
• Open afternoon on the Expo Floor
• Box Dinner & Mixer Event on the Train Ride home, sponsored by APAOC
A drive-in option is available for those staying multiple days, or for those that just want the flexibility of driving down or catching the train from a different station. Of course, the drive-in option does not include train fare or dinner, and attendees need to be aware that they may not be seated with the rest of the group if they book their own train fare from a different station.
In an effort to encourage all attendee groups to network with each other and to expand the reach of the promotion, DMAsc partnered with other regional and local print and marketing associations, including the Printing Industries Association of Southern California (PIASC), the Advertising Production Association of Orange County (APAOC), the Southern California Business Marketing Association (SCBMA) and the American Institute of Graphic Artists/Orange County (AIGA-OC). One need not be a member of any of these groups to attend, but special discounts apply for those who download the appropriate Promo Codes from the DMAsc website at http://www.yourdma.org/event/dma09train.
There is a discount deadline! Event promoters want to emphasize that these discounts are only available if attendees register with a valid Promo Code by Weds., Sept. 16th, after which date, standard rates apply. Also, there are only a limited number of seats available from each station, and seating locations on the trains are not guaranteed if booked after Weds., Sept. 16th.
