If you haven’t noticed, over the past few months the D.C. area has been building buzz with new start-ups launching regularly, events popping up daily and the media covering more of the events taking place. One event which sounds like it is going to be a killer event is Interact 2008. The event also has a pretty long description:
INTERACT will gather together the top creative, strategic, and tactical marketing minds to speak about proven methods in which Interactive Media and Web presence can achieve the following: Increase market share, increase awareness through branding, increase sales through Web presence, increase profitability though e-commerce, increase knowledge of best marketing practices on the Web, state-of-the-art mobile marketing, plus, futuristic outlooks from subject matter experts on how Interactive Media will shape the future growth of National, International, and Global companies in the future.
Talk about a broad focus! I will be speaking on a panel in the morning about social media and there are a bunch of other great panels throughout the day.
