This purpose of the Northeast Ohio Marketing Forum is to provide an open and accessible forum for Northeast Ohio marketing professionals to discuss controversial issues and national trends in marketing that are influencing our region.

The forum is also intended to help bridge the networking gap between Cleveland and Akron and connect the two cities and their surrounding areas to form a more cohesive marketing community in Northeast Ohio.

The Northeast Ohio Marketing Forum was created by DecisionPoint Marketing & Research, a full-service research firm in Fairlawn, Ohio. 30 minutes south of Cleveland and 20 minutes north of Akron, Fairlawn serves as a great research location, allowing DecisionPoint to draw from both major metropolitan areas as well as their suburbs. DecisionPoint has observed a need for more connection between the Akron and Cleveland marketing professionals, and hopes this blog/forum will be the perfect venue to open up discussion about our field and region.

Meet our fearless leader...
