"If you want something from an audience, you give blood to their fantasies. It's the ultimate hustle." -Marlon Brando
I KNOW I will read bout it later http://audienceconf.com/ but ooooh to be a fly on the wall at the conference called Audience.
NOV 6th in NYC 500 people
Audience is a conference aimed at those who recognise the need to reach engage and influence audiences of all kinds, an investigation into how this is changing, and a look at how technology has in the past and is now, through new media tools and the social web, changing audience participation and interaction.
The speakers range from large traditional media organisations with Dan Farber of CBS, though the recording industry with Warner Bros. Music CTO Ethan Kaplan, advertising with Crayon's Joe Jaffe, HR and internal audiences with Frank Roche of iFractal and new media players like Mike Arrington of TechCrunch and Jason Calacanis of Mahalo, not to mention Musicians like Adam & Mia and Writers like the inimitable Andrew Keen of "Cult of the Amateur" fame with more being added all the time.
Engaging on November 6th in the Hudson Theatre, one of New York's oldest playhouses with a capacity of only 500, this will be an intimate gathering of fine minds in Manhattan. We felt it was appropriate to hold a conference that was about Audience in a place that was specifically designed for an audience.
If you're interested in meeting with a diverse and knowledgable crowd and have a goal of understanding how the methods used to reach engage and influence audiences have changed and are changing. If you want to know the real business value of new tools and old tools in the battle to reach your audience, users or customers, then Audience conference is for you.
