"Proactivity in Information Management: Effective Tools and Techniques" October 19-20, 1994 Sheraton World Orlando, Florida A Unique Workshop Hosted by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) In the brave new world of the Information Age, an age-old problem persists. Namely, no matter how high-quality their products and services, information providers who are passive in promoting their wares can soon find themselves with a stagnant -- or a shrinking -- user base. As a leader in the acquisition, management, and distribution of scientific and technical information, DTIC is acutely aware of this problem - and a variety of proactive strategies for overcoming it. Now, in the first workshop of its kind, an international lineup of experts from government and private industry will offer you proven tools and techniques for "getting the word out" about your organization's capabilities. At the workshop, you'll explore traditional and cutting edge marketing techniques tailored to information professionals in such sessions as: y "The Strategic Plan: The Basis for Proactivity and Marketing," y "Creating a Marketing Plan," y "Current and Emerging Technologies in Marketing," y "Understanding Your Customer," y "Identifying User Requirements," y "Advertising Methods That Produce Results," y "Measuring and Evaluating Success," and y "Putting Theory Into Practice."
