The Online Marketing Summit (OMS) and ClickZ have teamed up to launch a "whistle stop tour" of internet marketing seminars, SEO workshops, and educational events, under the OMS brand. OMS will also be offering thousands of marketing professionals in 17 cities across the U.S. who attend one of these local events the opportunity to participate in the Online Marketing Institute's new "Essentials of Online Marketing" Certification Workshop.
The 2009 OMS Whistle Stop Tour starts in Boston on May 5, 2009, and will be stopping at New York on May 7, Philadelphia on May 8, Washington, D.C. on May 14, Austin on May 18, Houston on May 20, Dallas on May 21, Chicago on May 27, Milwaukee on May 29, Minneapolis on June 2, Denver on June 4, Atlanta on June 10, Charlotte on June 12, Orange County on June 16, San Francisco on June 25, Portland, OR, on June 2 and Seattle on July 1.
With daily posts, tweets and video at each stop, "The Whistle Stop Tour" can be followed at http://blog.onlinemarketingconnect.com/ and http://www.clickz.com. At each stop, leading experts in online marketing will share best practices through hands-on classes, thought leadership panels, and credit-worthy workshops. No vendor pitches and no sales-folk will be allowed!
