The 1,000+ who have turned out for Newport Interactive Marketers event have proven one thing: There’s a great thirst for new media insights. So often the hourlong NIM presentation has merely sparked greater interest, without a means to develop the fundamentals.

What makes these new media learning opportunities different?

  1. You’ll be doing the work with significant guidance and the opportunity to ask plenty of questions.
