The digital marketing landscape has changed rapidly since the days of AOL, but one thing hasn't changed: the best way to deliver targeted ads to your audience is still through your own agency.And for some people, this agency-led approach is the only way to go.A report released by the Institute for Creative Technologies (ICTS) this week suggests that, while most people use digital marketing to buil...
The London Internet marketing summit (LIM) has been cancelled for the time being after internet marketers and industry representatives took the opportunity to discuss the future of the industry in the UK.
The conference was hosted by DigitalMarketsUK, the UK’s largest independent digital marketing and social media marketing association.
The organisation’s executive director of events, Peter Jones, said in a statement: The event was cancelled in the light of the latest research and feedback we received.
The digital marketing industry in Britain has been at the centre of the digital divide in recent years, and we have seen many industry leaders leave.
We are deeply concerned about the future viability of this event, which has a proven track record of producing highly engaged and engaged audiences, and will be working with other digital and social marketing organisations to identify the next best way forward.
Jones added that the event had been cancelled due to the rise of the internet as a communication tool and a means of delivery for people.
“We have a responsibility to engage the community, and this conference has clearly fallen into that category.
We have a long way to go before we can be considered as a place where we can actually build on the successful results that the internet has had,” Jones said.
The UK government, which oversees digital marketing, is due to discuss online advertising in more detail in January.
The LIM is scheduled to take place from January 10 to 12 in London, with an opening reception and panel discussion on January 12, the conference’s website said.
LIM executive director Richard Williams said that the organisation’s decision to cancel the event was not in response to the new research and data, but instead to consider the need to take a “more holistic view” of the state of the economy and digital marketing.
He said: “There has been an overwhelming amount of feedback on the internet marketing summit over the past year.
We can see the rise in online marketing, the importance of online marketing in our society, and the growing trend of digital media and content consumption, and are concerned about what will happen to the industry once this data is fully available.”
He said he was not sure when the event would return.
“As we go into the winter months, we need to look at what is happening in the economy.
We want to make sure we do everything we can to support our businesses and our customers, and make sure our businesses have the best possible opportunities, so we will be looking at all options.”
