An Update on the Marketing & Online Communities Conference

Please note: This is cross-posted from the Online Community Report.

 

The Marketing & Online Communities conference is coming up November 8 in NYC. We are holding it at the superfly Tribeca Grand hotel. Did I say superfly? Indeed.

Speaking of superfly, I started pinning down advisors and speakers this week. The ideal mix we are going for is approximately 40% innovative agency content, 40% community host content, and 20% corporate marketing / brand management content.

I’m pleased that I’ve been able to secure two of the people that I am paying attention to with regard to “marketing / pr 2.0” practices:

Tim Manners – Cool News of the Day / Reveries
Steve Rubel – Micro Persuasion / Edelman

I have approximately 10 slots to fill, and lots of calls this week and next, so expect that list to grow fast. If you have speakers or session ideas you would like to pitch, please let me know ASAP.

I’ve posted a tentative session list for the conference on the M&OC details page here:
