ILM East: One Week Countdown

We’re greatly looking forward to seeing everyone in Boston at ILM East March 21-23 (i.e., Monday-Wednesday).

Boston Globe Publisher Chris Mayer is set to welcome everybody to Beantown, and discuss Boston.com’s local search, city guide and mobile services. Then we’ll hear from David Weinberger, one of the leading thinkers in social media; Foursquare‘s Evan Cohen; Former Ticketmaster CEO Sean Moriarty, who will talk on Venture Capital and local; and AT&T‘s Chuck Lee and Maria Kermath (Lee’s presentation on Vertical Power is a real ground-breaker).

To end the day, we’re hosting a panel of four very engaged local advertisers, who will tell us what they really want to do with the Internet, mobile and traditional media, too. But that’s not all. We’ll start the official conference with our perspective on current local trends, and before the bell (i.e., Monday morning), we’ll also get a full dose of BIA/Kelsey strategic forecasts from Mark Fratrik and Tom Buono. And that’s just Day 1.

Day 2 is full of top industry innovators whom we’ve hand-picked from the local leaders you want to hear from (Google, Facebook, AOL, The Washington Post, Gannett, etc.), and winds up with Mike Boland’s Mobile SuperForum. Day 3, of course, is completely dedicated to the New Deals environment, with Living Social‘s Tim O’Shaughnessy, Gilt City’s Nate Richardson, Red Plum’s Brian Costello and nine other Deals leaders. There’s never been a more comprehensive look at deals, and where they are leading.

Beat the “At the Door” price and sign up now if you haven’t already done so. Everyone you want to do business with will be at the show.
