Welcome to The 2018 Catalog and Integrated Marketing Summit! Once again, CohereOne is hosting a conference in Chicago, IL specifically for catalog and direct marketers.

This conference provides a unique convergence of networking, learning, and fun into a single package. This year’s theme is Integrated: The Smarter Path to Profitability. Strategies for synchronizing print, digital, and social media for maximum impact.

The Summit will focus on three key areas for today’s direct marketer:

  • Delivering Cohesive, Data-Driven Marketing - Success depends on a "road map" that integrates catalogs and direct mail with digital media. Learn how to turn print, digital, and social media into powerful and unified marketing programs.

  • Integrate Web Behavior to Drive Marketing - Learn how intent marketing can make one-on-one marketing a reality by converting visitors into browsers, and buyers into loyal fans, and coordinating this with other marketing efforts. Triggered postcard programs are changing the direct-to-consumer landscape.

  • Respond to Disruptive Marketing Forces - From merchandise to marketing, there are many disruptive forces that are impacting general marketing issues to include digital ad blocks and the heavy presence of Amazon.
