“Bridging the Gap: Mobile Media”

Friday, March 29, 2013

 Law School Function Room

 Suffolk University

 120 Tremont Street

 Boston, Massachusetts 02108


 

Description:

 

Now that social media and inbound marketing are making their way through business and culture, and mobile devices are altering consumer purchasing patterns, new opportunities and complexities are developing within organizations. With this conference, we aim to illustrate how mobile technology is being used to enhance business strategy in a way that is mutually beneficial for the company and the consumer. Our mission is to bridge the gap between academia and real-world practices, thereby strengthening the connection between the frameworks taught in schools and practical applications being used in organizations.

 

Conference-goers include all types of social media enthusiasts from small business owners who want to learn how to manage their own digital media, to business professors and business students who understand marketing strategy, but want to learn how digital media integrates into business frameworks.  Essentially, Bridging the Gap appeals to everyone who has ever wondered about how social media affects business strategy and how successful organizations use digital applications to enhance their marketing activities.
