Federated Media, this blog’s media agency, announced this week that they are holding a Conversational Marketing Summit September 11-12 in San Francisco.
From the FM Site:
The Conversational Marketing Summit brings together leaders in conversational media and marketing for a two-day dialog around the issues, lessons, and opportunities of this emerging medium. Speakers will present actual work from the field, including case studies from:
Brands: Absolut, Cisco, GM, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, Nike, Symantec, Virgin
Agencies: Anomaly, Butler Shine, Carat, Ogilvy, OMD, McCann, Starcom
Media: AskANinja, BoingBoing, Digg.com, Duct Tape Marketing, TechCrunch
The attention this event has already drawn from corporate heavyweights like Microsoft, Dell, HP, WebEx, and Ask.com demonstrates how far Federated Media has come in the interactive advertising world. The line up of speakers is a virtual who’s who in new media including executives from Digg.com, MySpace, Facebook, Yahoo, Six Apart, YouTube, Fox, AOL and, well, you get the picture.
I’ll be there and suggest that anyone who wants drink from the new media fire hose should join this conversation as well. This event will sell out!
