YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The DOYO Live digital marketing and interactive design conference keeps getting bigger, and is giving regional marketers direct access to some of the top names in the industry. Allen Gannett, founder and CEO of the Washington, D.C.,-based TrackMaven and author of “The Creative Curve,” provided Thursday morning’s keynote address.

His marketing analytics software company boasts such customers as Amtrak, U.S. Bank, Saks Fifth Avenue and The Home Depot. Representatives from well-known firms such as SEMrush, a global online marketing tool, and HubSpot, a Massachusetts-based provider of marketing and sales software, led two of the event’s 12 breakout sessions.

SEMrush boasts more than 400 employees in four countries. And on Wednesday, HubSpot announced its Q2 results with $122.6 million in total revenue, up 38% from the same period last year.
