Detailed Topic Descriptions:


The Art of Branding (Finding Your Focus)

"Branding" is the keyword of the decade, but what does it really mean? Most people don't understand what a brand really is or how to actually create one. This presentation demystifies and explains the process of branding for umbrella organizations (multiple communities) cities, downtowns, and marketing professionals. Through case histories, video clips, dozens of photos, and humorous stories, attendees will learn what it takes to create a successful brand, how to make if obvious, and how that translates to cash.

The 20 Ingredients of an Outstanding Destination

Have you ever wondered why some communities or downtowns are so successful while others struggle? To find out, the DDI team spent nearly six years surveying and studying more than 400 well-branded, vibrant downtowns, downtown districts and communities in North America to uncover the most common elements that led to their success. In this photographic “idea book” workshop, you’ll hear stories from these great places, see dozens of “how-they- did-it” photographic examples, and learn the 20 universal ingredients, including things you can do to create or enhance your own outstanding destination.

The Seven Deadly Marketing Sins

In this age of marketing oversaturation and instant information, ninety-seven percent of all advertising and marketing efforts are ineffective. In this entertaining presentation, learn how to avoid the seven deadly marketing sins and get your product or service noticed. Participants will see the good, bad and ugly of marketing through real-life examples and humorous stories. Learning how to turn deadly sins into heavenly marketing will put you in that successful three percent of marketing efforts, increasing your sales, improving the perception people have of your business, organization or community.
