Richard Cacciato to Speak at IFCA 2011 Conference

Richard Cacciato has been selected to Speak at the 2011 Conference of the Insurance and Financial Communications Association in Nashville in October.

NEW YORK, NY - The Insurance and Financial Communications Association (IFCA) has selected Blue Iceberg cofounder Richard Cacciato to speak at its 2011 Conference to be held in Nashville, Tennessee. Richard will speak on the topic of "Changing Direction", and will focus on how new media has changed the landscape of marketing communications, giving marketers an unprecedented ability to establish a two-way conversation with its audience. From websites to social media to highly targeted email and digital marketing campaigns, marketers in all areas can now tailor messages to specific interests and engage their audiences with highly relevant information. The challenge for insurance and financial communicators is how to use interactive media channels within the regulatory constraints of their industries. Richard will try to provide some clarity in the changing sea of bewildering choices in the changing interactive landscape.

The conference will take place from October 2-5, 2011.
