Monday’s post about the best online marketing conferences brought to my inbox a few questions about which of those are really worth attending. While, unfortunately, there is no short answer, there is one upon us worth your attention.
“Etailers of all sizes are trying to eliminate risk, improve sales volumes, and increase profitability. Online Market World will address such issues in a forward-looking manner so attendees can understand how their online ventures will evolve over time.” – Jen Cano; Hammertap
Online Market World brings leading marketers and leaders primarily focused on online sales, conversions, and retail, to San Francisco’s Moscone Center, October 1-3. Register now as they are putting together a tremendous line up of speakers including Kathy Ireland (yes, that Kathy Ireland; CEO of perhaps the largest design and marketing firms focused on moms and families) surrounded by a series of events and promotions to really make your experience exceptional.
This event is quickly going to become one of the “Must Attend” annual events for online marketing. There was a huge amount of content, with something for everyone no matter your level of marketing knowledge. It was a very interactive environment, quite different from many conferences.” – Mary O’Brien; PPC Summits
Expect great sessions on free marketing tips, killer viral marketing campaigns, leveraging ebay and local search, as well as a series of networking opportunities which I always find most valuable. I’m looking forward to this event in particular as the audience, topics, and speakers tend to favor the unique; giving us a chance to really learn something more than how to optimize for Google, allocate SEM budgets, or get our business listed in all the local search engines.
“We require cutting edge and market specific information for our clients. Online Market World brings together an excellent grouping of up-to-date and relevant industry providers. I recommend this event to gain market, product and solution intelligence.” – Richard Bernhardt; Bernhardt Communications and Strategies Co.
Google & Yahoo are there, eBay and Lucasfilm (yes, that Lucasfilm!), Neilsen and comScore, Adbrite and Mercado while a sizable exhibitor floor brings a remarkably diverse set of businesses to talk with at your leisure.
“The number and quality of interested prospects (attendees) surpassed my expectations (re: 2007). If you have a related business to promote, this is the place to be.” – Bob Jeffery; HelloWorld/FirstStream
