Target Market News to host 2009 African American Internet Marketing Summit on Nov. 19

Target Market News announced it will host the 2009 African American Internet Marketing Summit on Thursday, Nov. 19th in Chicago at the Wyndham Hotel downtown. The all-day conference — the only such gathering of its kind in the nation — will feature some of the industry’s leading executives and companies in marketing, advertising, media, technology and research.

“Think of this as the 2.0 version of our 2008 Internet Summit,” said Ken Smikle, President of Target Market News. “We added marketing to the title because we’re putting an emphasis on how the Internet and digital platforms reach the $800 billion African American consumer market.
