2nd Annual Web 2.0 for Business Conference on November 1st
With ExecutiveBiz, we're helping to organize the 2nd annual New New Internet: Web 2.0 for Business conference. This year it will be held in Reston, VA on November 1st. Confirmed speakers include James Surowiecki (author of The Wisdom of Crowds), Ted Leonsis, Om Malik, and Tim Ferriss (author of The 4-Hour Work Week) as well as DC's own Rohit Bhargava (Ogilvy), Frank Gruber (AOL), and Geoff Livingston. We'll also have a few guys I've blogged about, including Gary Vaynerchuk of wine library tv (see post), Brad Feld of Foundry, one of the organizers of TechStars and Startup Weekend, and Ryan Carson, who runs the Future of Web Apps and Future of Web Design conferences among other ventures. More speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. Last year's event was solid with more than 450 in attendance, and this year could see almost double that. In fact, a sell-out is possible so grab a ticket early. Use the promo code "viget" to save on the registration. There are still spots for sponsors, established companies to exhibit, or start-ups to showoff in the web 2.0 application competition. Stay tuned to www.tnni07.com for more announcements about speakers and related unconference events. We (Viget) are also looking for co-sponsors for the traditional (as much as 2 years can be a tradition) pre-conference happy hour, so let me know if you're interested.
