Top 10 Marketing Events

Below, you can find my list for top ten marketing events that you should not miss in 2009. Of course, I don’t advise you to attend all of them. However, if you are in marketing business in North America and/or Europe, this is a list you should keep in mind, so that you can schedule your trips accordingly. A top marketing executive should attend at least two of these events within 2009.

AdTech Paris was a success

AdTech Paris was a success for Vodaco Web Strategies. I was able to meet with many exciting companies. What I am seeing is that many small companies are developing exciting new technologies and the market is very dynamic. These new tools and services in development are the answer to the question; “Who will be the winner in the advertising race? Agencies or Digital agancies?”. At the end the best will win. Hopefully, I will be able to share much more from Adtech in the comming weeks.

From CeBIT 2006, Axinom – a name to remember

I was fortunate to meet Axinom and their CMS (Contact Management System) system at 2006 CeBIT Hannover.
They have the right product and the right business model. They are the first solid firm to offer free license CMS with .NET infrastructure as far as I know.
If they can do a good web marketing campaign for their product, success seems to be a sure thing. I was introduced to their system by Johannes Jauch, one of the Managing Directors of Axinom. (By the way isn’t this interesting? Is this common in Germany, a company with multiple Managing Directors (or “Geschäftsführer” as German say)? I have no idea, but I think it is a great approach, at least for a software company to have double or even more Managing Directors.)
My first impression was very positive. Of course we need to develop at least one project with the product AxCMS to understand its real capacity. However, from my conversation with Herr Jauch, I feel sure this is the right product and the right company.
Viel Erfolg Johannes und Viel Erfolg Axinom
