As we promised earlier this week, the early-bird ticket registration for our Economics of Social Media (EconSM) conference is now open. The one-day conference, on April 26th in LA at the Beverly Hilton, will focus on the process, deals, business models, and tools in the nascent social media sector.
Space is limited and, much like our quickly filled mixers, we’re likely to sell out fast. It is $495 now for the first 100 tickets, and will go up to $695 after early bird ends.
We have a great speaker line-up till now, and have lots more in the pipeline. Confirmed include: Simon Assaad, CEO, Heavy.com; John Battelle, Chairman, Federated Media; Michael Birch, CEO, Bebo; Alan Citron, GM, TMZ.com; Ilene Chaiken, Executive Producer, The L Word; Shawn Conahan, CEO, Intercasting Corp; Toby Coppel, SVP, Corporate Development, Yahoo; Josh Deutsch, CEO, Downtown Records; Esther Dyson, Edventure Holdings; Jason Hirschhorn, President, Entertainment Group, Sling Media; Hadi Partovi, COO, iLike; Quincy Smith, President, CBS Interactive; Ken Stern, CEO, NPR; Kara Swisher, Wall Street Journal; Rishad Tobaccowala, CEO, Denuo/CIO, Publicis Media Group
