New at SMB Digital Marketing Sept. 17-19: Google, Facebook (And More)

We’re putting the final flourishes on our SMB Digital Marketing conference Sept. 17-19 in Chicago, and they are big ones: top SMB decision makers for Google and Facebook, plus Entertainment.com CEO Dean DeBiase.

These headliners are being added to 37+ speaker lineup that includes Alfred Mockett, CEO, DexOne; Gail Goodman, CEO, Constant Contact; Patrick Barry, CMO, DemandForce; Nathan Hanks, President, ReachLocal; and Sanjay Gupta, Vice President, Global Marketing, Groupon.

Google, of course, is involved with everything concerning SMB marketing, so we’re taking a 360 degree approach by featuring two key execs on Day 3: Ben Wood, who handles channel relationships around the world for the Big G; and Valentine Matrat, who has been key in building the SMB channel for YouTube.

Facebook, as the king of social media, is the potential SMB disruptor here. But it can go in several directions with SMBs. Facebook’s Fred Huang, who previously led SMB Digital marketing for Google China, will provide his insights on this during our summary Day 3 keynote.
Then we come to Entertainment.com CEO Dean DiBiase, who is transforming the promotional 2 for 1 superpower into a lasting SMB channel. DeBiase speaks during an executive interview on Day 2.

We’re excited about everything at this event, including Andrew Shotland‘s deep insider talk on search and social trends, which also features Relevant Ads CEO Steve Yeich; and our summary panel, where we will really go at it with a group of great thinkers. Cut the hype!

The panel include Jeff Aguero, CEO, Main Street Labs (who many of you will remember from Google Local); Dan Hess, CEO, Local Offer Network, who had been a leading Tribune-ite; Bruce Howard, CEO, User Friendly Yellow Pages; and longtime industry vet Doug Kilponen, who has been involved with such plays as MerchantCircle.
