It' opportunity to reconnect with colleagues ... we had an opportunity to publish our work ... Keynote speakers provided interesting insights into best practices.  Colleagues and speakers spark ideas for research.  The DMA is the best part of the package, because we become familiar with current practices.

-Juanita Roxas, California State Polytechnic University-Pomona

...the greatest way to sample the research that is being done in academia and how it relates to the practitioners' world.  There are also great resources for improving your teaching and sharpening your teaching tools.  -Al Raider, University of Maryland University College

Research Summit Renamed

In 2013, we changed our name to Marketing EDGE, and since then, we have built a brand inclusive of all who are studying, teaching, researching and practicing marketing that is rooted in the data-driven and digital space. 

In the past three years, we have reviewed and renamed several of our programs to form a more cohesive brand, and effective 2017, we have changed the Direct/Interactive Marketing Research Summit to the Marketing EDGE Summit.
The new name also aligns the conference better with the Data & Marketing Association’s (DMA) annual event &THEN, the host practitioner conference for the Marketing EDGE Summit.
What has not changed is our unwavering commitment to and support for the academics who work tirelessly to educate the next generation of marketers. The Marketing EDGE Summit will continue to provide a forum for innovative pedagogical research as well as data-driven marketing research.
