As we get ready for our Drilling Down event in San Jose later this month, we are also setting our sights on Directory Driven Commerce 2006, our directory industry event, which happens this Sept. 18-20 in Los Angeles.
We are sticking with a simple, straightforward theme for DDC2006 — what does the future hold for the global Yellow Pages industry?
We’ve just confirmed our first featured speaker, Valerie Taylor, CEO of Platefood. Platefood is a London-based company that is a collaboration of the Australian directory publisher Sensis and FAST Search & Transfer to market a directory/search platform to Yellow Pages publishers.
We think Valerie will offer a compelling POV on at least one approach for publishers to remain competitive in a multi-platform future.
We plan to announce other featured speakers in the coming days and weeks.
We are now in the process of developing our map of conference sessions, and we welcome your ideas and feedback.
If you have an idea for a conference session topic, you can send me an e-mail with your ideas. I can’t promise I will use every idea, but I will consider them all.
