Originally booked as a two-day conference, the event was expanded to include a third day beginning on Monday, May 3. This optional, additional training day has two day-long sessions, one on Lead Generation, led by Ruth Stevens and Cyndi Greenglass, and another on Integrating Social Media Into Your Marketing Plan to Improve ROI, led by Christina “CK” Kerley. Both of these day-long training tracks offer in-depth, hands-on experience for improving your B2B marketing strategy and initiatives.
There are several hot-seat labs in which attendee’s marketing initiatives will be evaluated and discussed by experts in front of their peers. These hot-seat labs include blogging, video, and web usability. I’ll be conducting a hot-seat lab on B2B blogging. I’m really looking forward to the session. I sat in on last year’s hot-seat lab on blogging moderated by Jay Bear. Big shoes to fill. Jay did a great job, there was a lot of discussion and Q&A, and I think everyone in the room walked away with a much higher level of knowledge and understanding.
There’s still time to volunteer to participate in these hot-seat labs, but there are only a few more days to get your name in for consideration. Selections will be made soon. If you’re interested don’t wait. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know what Hot Seat Lab you’d like to volunteer for.
At the event there are a number of breakfast roundtables, each focused on a particular topic. They’re a great way to jumpstart your day. They had high participation last year. If you’re going, be sure to take part in these excellent roundtables. The run from 8 am to 9am on Wednesday May 5. I’ll be moderating the one on B2B Blogging.
In addition to all of the sessions and content learning opportunities, I’m just as excited to reconnect with many B2B professionals, to finally meet in person several with whom I’ve only corresponded on email or Twitter, and to meet a broad range of industry professional that I’ve never met before.
