A one-day conference is being organized in Paris on 11 October designed to introduce participants to communication tools complementary to blogs such as RSS, podcasting, videocasting and tracking/buzz measurement - all elements of participatory communication.
Set up as a series of informal roundtables, the event is being organized by Blogging Planet (the communication consultancy of which I am an alliance partner), with my fellow partner Guillaume Du Gardier leading the planning and event development.
The event will address how such new media tools can be applied to various business challenges. We think it's time to talk about the next level of related tools and services which can really help blogs come alive for business.
Confirmed speakers to date are:
- Fergus Burns, CEO, Nooked
- Richard Treadway, CMO, PubSub
- Loïc Le Meur, Executive VP Europe, Six Apart
- Jian Ni, Senior Business Development Manager, Nokia LifeBlog
- Mark Rogers, CEO, Market Sentinel
The cost of participation will be low, less than €100 - the event is being planned as an affordable framework for stimulating discussion and ideas, not as a money-making event. We have limited the number of places to 200 attendees, so if you'd like to participate, please pre-book your place now - details on the event wiki.
Everything will be announced in the wiki, so please stay tuned there. We hope to see you in Paris on 11 October!
