. Details, including the agenda,can be found here
Now in its third year, the BlogHer Business Conference is an
annual "crash course" on best practices for reaching the most
influential and powerful consumers -- women online -- in the quickly
evolving social media world.
Attendees find themselves on fertile ground for innovative
ideas, interacting with a mix of social media experts, business
bloggers, and brand marketers who have experience building campaigns
and working in social media environments.
BlogHer Business presents case studies that look at social media
campaigns from a 360° perspective, including the insights of the
companies, agencies and targeted bloggers involved! BlogHer Business
kicks off each year with a data-driven review of the state of the
Blogosphere, based on its exclusive commissioned study focused on the
shifts in media usage among women online.
The BlogHer Business audience is comprised of several key groups:
- Brand marketers working within corporations
- Communications/PR professionals
- Media buying executives
- Business bloggers/social media consultants
This event is kept at a smaller size (150-200 attendees) to facilitate deeper discussion and more valuable networking.
About BlogHer '09
Building on the momentum of four consecutive sold-out annual conferences, BlogHer '09 will bring bloggers from every corner of the blogosphere together for hands-on learning, rich discussions, opportunities to meet with the brands that support them and plentiful networking opportunities. BlogHer ’09 will take place on July 23-25, bringing over one thousand attendees together to celebrate 2009’s theme: “In Real Life.”
One of the number one reasons we all attend BlogHer every year, whether coming for the first time or as an old-timer, is to meet our online community "in real life". So after five years we think it's a great time to celebrate the fact that our blogging, whether personal, professional or political, has brought us real work, real friends, real satisfaction and is most definitely a significant part of our real life!
