meshmarketing announces 2010 event in Toronto

meshmmeshmarketing is a one-day event focused on providing engaging, hands-on and stuff-you-can-use sessions about the fast-changing digital marketing landscape. 

This year meshmarketing is happening on November 17th in Toronto. Tickets are $489 (plus HST) before September 17th, and $539 afterwards. There are also 50 student tickets for $99 each (plus HST). And, of course, we’ll have a social afterwards. Tickets can be purchased here.

While they’re keeping the same focus and approach, there are some wrinkles that are going to make meshmarketing even better.

First, they’ve partnered with Trina Boos, who has been running the successful Ad Lounge events. Trina delivers terrific insight into the advertising and marketing worlds, as well as a huge community that she has nurtured and built over the past nine years. As meshmarketing’s new programming director, Trina will be the driving force behind the event’s sessions and speakers.

Second, the organizers have tweaked the programming format.

Rather than have a single keynote, meshmarketing will have two keynotes – Michael Slaby and Marian Salzman – along with a super-presentation by Lee LeFever.

Michael Slaby is executive vice-president and global practice chair of Edelman’s digital practice. Before joining Edelman, he was a technology and new media advisor to the Obama administration where he led operational and long-term planning for technology including web strategy and utilization, and data integration opportunities.

Marian Salzman, one of the world’s top five trend spotters, will offer insights into the future of digital marketing and communications. As a leading communications professional, digital marketer and author, Marion will provide her insight on what’s on the horizon and what we need to know now to prepare.

And for those not familiar with Lee LeFever, he (along with his partner and wife, Sachi) are the brains behind the popular Common Craft video series that provides user-friendly insight into technology and technology trends that everyone can understand.
