Commenting on the event, Steven Jones, Conference Director, Direct Marketing
2005 said, "The concept of direct marketing is by no means new, but its significance has increased remarkably in the recent past, especially in rapidly developing markets such as the Middle East. The extremely competitive market situation has forced marketers to explore alternative channels other than the traditional routes to market such as media advertising."
