Colorado American Marketing Association, MarTech Leader Adestra Announce Partnership


Denver – February 12, 2016 – The Colorado American Marketing Association (Colorado AMA) and Adestra, a leading provider of innovative marketing technology software and services, today announced a multi-year partnership. Adestra will provide the Colorado AMA with a powerful email communications platform—plus a financial contribution—to help the Colorado AMA segment and communicate more effectively to marketers statewide, while at the same time demonstrating the impact email can have on brand equity when fully optimized.


This year, the Colorado AMA aims to increase event participation and membership involvement, leveraging Adestra’s platform and financial support to improve member communication and engagement.


“Adestra is a critical partner for the Colorado AMA,” said Aaron Templer, president of the Colorado AMA. “We want to be the center of gravity for the marketing community in Colorado, and we won’t get there without demonstrating exemplary marketing practices ourselves. The Adestra platform will help us get there.”


For more than a decade ago, leading organizations like UBM, FranklinCovey, Incisive Media and The London Symphony have relied on Adestra’s innovative technology and professional expertise to implement email marketing based on the unique traits, behaviors and needs of each customer.


“What has always set Adestra apart is that we are more than a software platform to our clients. We are hands-on collaborators, immersed in their business so that we can help them create memorable marketing campaigns and build long-term relationships with their customers,” said Ryan Phelan, VP of marketing for Adestra. “The Colorado AMA’s goals align perfectly with our value proposition. This partnership is a great way for us to demonstrate our platform and customer service to a wide range of marketing professionals.”
