Going to CES next week? I'm co-hosting...
Last year at the massive Consumer Electronics Show, I was privileged to speak at the Social Media Jungle event that Jeff Pulver hosted the day before CES really kicked off.
This year, I'm co-hosting with Jeff and we have a pretty amazing lineup of speakers for our half-day event on January 6th, 2010 in Las Vegas.
Here's Jeff's description of the event:
It's wild out there in the social media jungle! Unbridled growth and tens of millions of "addicts" have made social media an unstoppable force that's changing the way we live and work. Sit in on state-of-the-industry updates, and get a candid look at how social media disrupts the workplace by empowering companies to lower burn rates. Plus, you'll learn how companies can use social media to motivate consumers and drive product sales without increasing costs. This year our underlying theme is: "How the consumer electronics industry can benefit from social media."
So who do we have speaking at the event? I'll do you one better: here's our full schedule:
9:00-9:10 a.m. Welcome to the Jungle, Jeff Pulver
9:10-9:30 a.m. Consumer Marketing in the State of NOW, Jeff Pulver
9:30-9:45 a.m. Social Media Reputation, Dave Taylor
9:45-9:55 a.m. Brand Engagement in Social Media, Chris Rauschnot
9:55-10:20 a.m. Effects of twitter on Consumer Marketing, Jeffrey Sass
10:20-10:30 a.m. Building Trust in Social Media, Eric Weaver
10:30-10:50 a.m. What's Next in Social Media? Robert Scoble
10:50-11:00 a.m. Social Media ROI, Ben Grossman
11:00-11:10 a.m. Social Media Reciprocity, Warren Whitlock
11:10-11:25 a.m. Digital Presence in the NOW and Beyond, Dean Landsman
11:25-11:35 a.m. Effective PR Strategies in the era of Social Media, Susan Etlinger
11:35-11:45 a.m. Leveraging the Livestream in Consumer Marketing, Kevin Sablan
11:45-11:55 a.m. Social Media Lessons Learned during 2009, Justin Levy
11:55-12:15 p.m. Evolution of Trust Agents, Chris Brogan
Personally, I'm pretty psyched to be in such august company and consider many of the speakers good friends and all of them highly respected colleagues.
How much would you pay to pow-wow with these folk? Well, we won't have a fire going and we won't be passing around a peace pipe (though it is a pretty cool idea!) but we do very much welcome your attendance, but more, your participation in the Social Media Jungle next week in Las Vegas.
To join us please start here: CES Registration then follow the registration process and select Social Media Jungle as the registration option.
Hopefully we'll see you there!
