Since announcing this conference, I continue to be humbled by the people who have came forward to be a part of it. I thank the worldwide twitter community for their interest and continued support. (Feel free to follow @140conf on twitter for updates)
The next 140 Character Conference is taking in New York City on April 20/21 2010. Click here for more information.
While the original scope of the event was to explore “the effects of twitter on: Celebrity, “The Media”, Advertising and (maybe) Politics”, the scope of the event has expanded and we will be covering these topics and a lot more. #140conf will be taking a look at twitter as a platform and will be taking a look at some of the industries which have been disrupted by the advent of twitter.
The schedule reflects the great variety of the subject areas we explored and discused at the first #140conf. The speakers represented a “cast of characters” whose presence will help define this event. Our cast members are flying in from around the world to join us. And while not all members of the cast will have formal speaking roles, many will and their presence will be felt at the event. The cast members joined us from as far as away as: Perth, Australia and Doha, Qatar as well as from across North America, Europe and the Middle East. This was a gathering of people with a variety of backgrounds and the one thing everyone who will be there has in common is twitter.
The schedule for this two day event was unique and fast paced. It was my intention to provide a platform for as many people as possible to share their thoughts and engage in conversation with the attending delegates. You will find individual talks set to: 10 minutes; “Featured talks” 15 and 20 minutes and the various panel discussions are set for 15 and 20 minutes.
I believe that the knowledge shared and learned at this event will help bring more people into the twitter community. The take aways from this event will provide the attending delegates knowledge, perspectives and insights to the next wave of effects twitter will have on business.
