Web2Open is only one week away!
If you liked BarCampNYC3, and/or can't afford a full-price ticket for the Web 2.0 Expo, the Web2Open is for you. It's a free conference, taking place on the grounds of, and with the support of, the great folks at Web 2.0 Expo (Janetti Chon, Jen Pahlka, and Brady Forrest. You know them!).
The Open sessions will be mostly decided on site. However, I'm now pleased to announce the pre-programmed sessions which will take place. These folks suggested a session on the Conference CrowdVine and won both the hearts of fellow attendees as well as the Web2Open Advisory Board.
- Fashion 2.0 with David Reinke of StyleHop and Yuli Ziv of MyItThings
- Making the Most of Transatlantic Business with Sam Michel of Chinwag and the UK Minister of Trade and Investment
- Going after Ad Dollars for Startups and Emerging Companies with Darren Herman of MediaKitchen
- Advertising Through Social Media Applications with Chris Cunningham of AppSavvy
See the full schedule here. And don't worry! There are still loads of Open sessions waiting for you to lead! Just make sure you're there first thing in the morning on Wednesday and Thursday, and that you're in the Web2Open welcome session on the Expo Floor.
It's then that we'll open up the matrix for everyone and anyone to do a session.
So, what are you waiting for? Head to the Web2Open site to learn more, or just head on over to register for an "Expo" pass and use the Web2Open code (webny08opn) to get in free and participate in the unconference.
See you next week!
PS: There's still some slots open to volunteer. Learn more here.
