Put a couple dozen digital marketing people in a room and what do you get?

Maybe a rebranded company? Or, more likely, a lively mix resembling a mini TEDx talk and elevator pitch with an E-commerce edge.

See for yourself at the Pittsburgh Digital Marketing Show & Tell this month, featuring three rapid-fire, seven-minute presentations that will be sandwiched between two generous periods of networking.

“This is an unconventional event for digital marketers ‘in the trenches’ to share ideas and get some inspiration,” says Katie Vojtko, digital marketer and E-commerce coordinator for the robotic baby gear company 4moms. “The quickness of the talks keeps it interesting and stimulating while generating great new ideas.”

Previous topics have focused on the challenges of traffic attribution, the nurturing of Facebook Ads and the hurdles encountered in marketing during the Super Bowl.

Speakers stepping up will be Michael Smylie of Mullen, “Using Data to Drive Digital”; Mila Sanina of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, “Elements of Optimizing Owned Traffic,” and Kate Daly of Siteworx, “Where Marketing Meets Software Management.”

The public is invited to attend the free session. A Q&A session will follow the talks.

The event will be held on June 3, 6 p.m., at Mullen, sponsor and host, at 24th Street and Smallman in the Strip District. Reservations are required.
