SALT LAKE CITY, UT, May 18, 2004 -- Jeff Hilton, president and partner of Integrated Marketing Group (IMG), a marketing and branding agency servicing a national and international clientele, has been invited to speak at the 3rd Annual Natural Personal Care Products & Global Beauty Conference, June 14-16, 2004, at the Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago, Illinois.
Hilton will present 'What Every Marketer Should Know About FTC Advertising Compliance' Tuesday, June 15, at 4:45 p.m.
"The Federal Trade Commission has escalated its level of activity in regulating what it deems Œfalse and misleading¹ advertising in the natural and organic products categories," stated Hilton.
