The eMA produces two Key eMarketing Conference a year. Additionally, the eMA partners with, or sponsors over 30 other industry seminars, trade shows and conferences each year.

The roots of the our conferences go back to the year 2002 when we held our first "Power of eMarketing" summit in Redondo Beach, California.

Our mission then, as it is now, is to provide the very best experience to our attendees. eMA conferences offer excellent presentations in a sophisticated atmosphere, comfortable seating, great food and optimum networking opportunities.

5. Accept fatigue - Traveling and attending an event can take a high energy level. Try to arrive a day or two early to rest and prepare for the event, stay a day longer to unwind and debrief yourself. eMA events provide at least a 5 day “window” for special hotel rates. So book early.

6. Plan your day- Select the sessions that are the most valuable to you and check them off on your conference agenda. Mix and match roundtable breakouts with the main sessions and panel discussions. Try to arrive early in the morning and take advantage of networking opportunities at registration and breakfast. Focus on the conference and try to avoid phone calls, and other distractions while you are there.
