Oct 21, 2010, 15:27 ET from PR+MKTG Camp

NEW YORK, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Thursday October 28, PR+MKTG Camp™ (www.PRMKTGCamp.com/Events.html) returns to New York for a full day of discussions to maximize your social media engagement strategies directed at key influencers, customers and end users.

Speakers from leading brands including American Express, PepsiCo, Cisco, EMC and MTV and top agencies like Digitas Health and Ketchum Digital will address how integrating marketing, PR, sales, customer service and community moderation can:

  • Ensure better brand and messaging consistency
  • Clarify roles and responsibilities to increase customer satisfaction
  • Improve handoffs between teams to avoid PR headaches and lost sales opportunities
  • Enhance your company's or organization's brand and reputation

PR+MKTG Camp East is a highly interactive one-day conference. It's geared for marketing and PR professionals grappling with how the new social media landscape has changed roles and responsibilities, tactics and strategies, performance metrics and customer expectations.

PR+MKTG Camp East is the fifth conference and the second one to be held in New York. Previous Camps were held in Atlanta, Seattle and Chicago.

"PR+MKTG Camp East is a full day immersion for PR and marketing professionals looking to maximize their social media performance," said event producer, Dan Greenfield. "It's not enough to know how use to Twitter and Facebook; marketing and PR must align with customer service, sales and community moderation – especially when different departments are using the same channels and talking to many of the same end users. Without collaboration, it's a recipe for confusion and lost opportunities."

Attendees will engage directly with speakers who are driving PR, marketing and social media efforts at some of the world's largest corporations and best-known brands and agencies. Topics include assessing the current communications landscape, building a vision for integrated strategic engagement, executing a strategy for integrated engagement and establishing business impact metrics and analytics.

PR+MKTG Camp will also feature a keynote presentation Ellen Stone, senior vice president of marketing at Bravo Networks and in depth panel discussion on social media and collaboration within the health care and pharmaceutical industry.
