San Francisco, California

There are TWENTY-THREE SPEAKERS in total, in a single track, one after other, over the course of two days. And this year around half of the speakers are men.
Topics being disucssed will be wide ranging but will almost certainly cover digital innovation, advertising, content creation and curation, mobile (and the Pandora's Box that opens up), agency models, games, planes, trains and automobiles. Plus the odd left-field speaker you simply weren't expecting .
Considering the precedent that's been set with the previous five years' line-ups, not to mention the amazing one-day event that took place in London earlier this year, the bar has been well and truly raised.
You should defintely come along, especially at this price!
