I’ve had the pleasure to work with the Twin Cities local AMA and AdFed chapters to brand some crazy and wonderfully successful events. But, did you know (and this is for you out-of-towners) that Minnesota is also home to the oldest and one of the largest interactive marketing association in the country (maybe in the world).
Founded in 1998, the Minnesota Interactive Marketing Association (MIMA) is a homegrown organization that has the freedom to bring together talented professionals and partner with members to elevate the quality of marketing practiced, the image, and talent available in Minnesota to the rest of the word…no joke.
MIMA will be hosting their 9th annual Summit 2010 on September 27-28, 2010 at the Hilton Minneapolis. Seriously, this is going to be an awesome interactive marketing conference with more than 70 thought leaders in the industry, many with national roots (and the local folks presenting are all-stars as well), who are coming to town to discuss the latest thinking and trends about all things interactive marketing.
Did I mention that Gary Vaynerchuk (of Wine Library TV fame) and Baratunde Thurston (Web Editor at The Onion) are the keynotes? I think I just did. In short, it’s going to be a stellar two-days and I would encourage you take the time to check out the MIMA Summit Web site to learn more and register.
