Spring Networking Plans

April 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

With the start of a new season I find myself planning a spring/summer conference schedule. My goal for attending; build connections, develop new ideas and continue learning in the digital media and sports marketing landscape.

Two new groups starting up; the Social Media Cafe (Toronto) and Sports 2.0’s new Digital Fan Marketing Summit.

The first gathering of the Social Media Cafe Toronto took place last week as we began to shape an organizing committee. Special thanks to Brian Cugelaman (@SMCafeT) for bringing this concept to T.O. Join us for our second gathering on April 28.

Another potential opportunity is a June conference in New York City. Pat Coyle, creator of Sports 2.0 has added a new summit to his roster focusing on the digital sports fan. Featured speakers so far include:

  • John Kosner – Senior VP & GM, Digital Media at ESPN
  • Nick Grudin – Strategic Partnerships, Sports & News at Facebook
  • Ross Hufman – Business Development Manager at Twitter

I was fortunate to attend a past Sports 2.0 Summit; loved the intimate gathering, learned so much and met very valuable – new colleagues. (Will be following #dfms11 if not able to visit the NYC session in person).

Look forward to attending above, plus other digital media type gatherings that I find. Please forward any recommendations.
