This week in the UMSL Business podcasting series, “In Your Business with UMSL Business”, a few UMSL Business students sat down with Perry Drake, Angela LaRocca and Briana Smith to talk about the upcoming Midwest Digital Marketing Conference
and how it has grown over the past four years. This year, MDMC will take place on April 12th and 13th at Union Station in downtown St. Louis.
Perry Drake is a professor at UMSL who started his teaching career at New York University in the field of Integrated Marketing. He began teaching at UMSL four years ago, after a 14 year stint in New York. It was at UMSL where professor Drake created the UMSL Digital Conference that first time took place on campus for only half a day. The Digital Conference grew and it became known as the Midwest Digital Marketing Conference, or MDMC, and has since moved off campus to Union Station to accommodate larger crowds.
