Special thanks to the 60 speakers and 515 attendees who made the ILM:09 conference such a great learning and socializing experience. Among the 85 conferences produced by John and Pam Kelsey and their team (including myself), we think it might have been one of the best.
In addition to the excellent, on-the-spot coverage of the event by the BIA/Kelsey analysts, other extensive and excellent coverage has been provided by David Mihm on his blog; Andrew Krukowski of TVNewscheck.com; Andrew Shotland at Local SEO Guide; Cory Bergman at LostRemote.com (a featured speaker vis a vis his dayjob at MSNBC.com; and Mark Briggs at Journalism 2.0.
There is also a fantastic, lengthy Twitter feed from conference attendees (and weirdly, off-site observers). Thanks especially to champion Twitterer Emerson Calegaretti, Internet Business Director at Publicar do Brasil. Emerson, we owe you some kind of prize!
Our next event is Marketplaces 2009, March 22-24 in San Diego. You’ll hear more about that after the New Year.
