Cossette West has renewed partnership with New Media BC to present the Convergence 2009 Digital Marketing Conference. Convergence 2009 will take place during the second annual Vancouver Digital Week, scheduled for May 11-15, 2009 on Granville Island in Vancouver. As part of the extended partnership, Sandy Fleischer, VP and General Manager of Fjord Interactive (Cossette’s digital marketing group), has been appointed to the board of New Media BC.

“We are very excited to work in an expanded partnership with New Media BC, as part of Vancouver Digital Week,” said Sandy Fleischer. “Digital Week events pull together thought leaders from around the world to explore the latest developments in the ever evolving domain of digital media, and we are proud to be a part of it.”

Last year’s inaugural Convergence Conference featured speakers from companies such as McDonalds, Yahoo, MSN, Future Shop and EA, as well as world leading experts in digital marketing and communications. With Vancouver placed firmly on the global landscape of digital media, Convergence 2009 highlighted how local talent is helping push major global brands to the forefront of digital marketing and communications. The conference also explored how prominent local bloggers have become an integral part of the media.
