BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FutureM, the community-driven event experience taking place September 12-16, 2011, announced the first round of events selected for 2011. The brainchild of MITX (Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange) and a group of leading thinkers in marketing and media, FutureM is a collective effort in which the event partners – companies, organizations, venture firms and university groups – host events designed to explore the future of marketing. The events reflect the evolving marketing industry and present forward-looking perspective on the changes affecting the industry.
“The outstanding and innovative events selected for FutureM 2011 capture what modern marketing will look like tomorrow and years from now,” said MITX president, Debi Kleiman. “The future of marketing is so complex and fascinating, cutting across an ever wider swath of creative and technology disciplines to build the relationships and connections that brands dream about.”
