2020 will mark our 32nd year of providing seminars, an annual conference, and invaluable networking opportunities for business people throughout the Northeast. The group was founded in 1988 by George Duncan, Larry Chait and Bob Sabloff - three very knowledgeable, very experienced direct marketing professionals. These just weren't any guys. They were smart. They were leaders in their fields. They had good ideas. They had good connections. And, above all they had BIG dreams. They felt that if they were able to get 50 members in the Group, it would be a HUGE achievement.
You can bet they never dreamed that the VT/NH MG would be where it is today - one of the largest local direct marketing organizations in the nation with hundreds of members scattered throughout a five state area.
The VT/NH Marketing Group is dedicated to promoting excellence in education and training for marketers in all channels and formats, and to achieving & upholding the highest ethical business standards.
Vermont & New Hampshire have the highest per capita number of mail order and direct marketing companies of any two states in the country. While direct marketers enjoy the quality of life offered here, the VT/NH MG provides a network of support to help them run their businesses as productively as possible. Our members use every method of direct marketing, from traditional direct mail and catalogs to telemarketing and the internet.
Our Members utilize Integrated Marketing in their approach to their overall marketing strategies so there is a unified and seamless experience for consumers to interact with their brands.
They use all aspects of marketing communication such as advertising, sales promotion, public relations, direct marketing, social media, and digital marketing through all channels.
