Taking a cue from Jon Arnold, here's what I have going on at ITEXPO West 2011 in Austin (a move from Los Angeles in previous years):
While I will miss the chance to hit Manhattan Beach for some beach volleyball, this will be my first time in Austin.
It's also the first time that there will be a CMO Summit at ITEXPO. My company and my pal's company, CR8 Group, in conjunction with a great team at TMC - Dave, Anna and Mike - are bringing in 2 speakers to discuss Online Branding. Rich Tehrani wrote about it today. CMO, CEO, President or VP of Marketing only. 75 execs in charge of marketing to network and learn. Apply for a ticket now!
I usually have a panel for Reseller Day or under the ITEXPO banner for VoIP, but this year I am moderating 2 panels for the Social CRM Expo. Keeping with the CMO theme of online marketing, my panels run from 2-3:45. At 2, Top 10 Tips for Online Marketing with Shawna vercher on the panel. At 3, Does Your Business Have a Social Media Strategy? Both should be pretty informative. (Wait until you see the panelists!)
Then over on the show floor, the Channel Vision Expo will be happening. Get ready for a Channel Manager Round Table!
Startup Camp is at 5PM on the 14th! That is a don't miss session.
If you will be in town, let me know - I woould love to have coffee, a drink, dinner or interview you for the blog. Email me for a time!
