New York City, New York

What it is:
An exclusive one day intensive event designed to help marketers identify specific, relevant, tactical opportunities for their organization within social media. The event will consist of 4 interactive sessions centered around key areas of social media followed by 2 intensive tactical workshops. The workshops will be designed to create a realtime social media strategy for 2 of the participating companies. The day will end with 1 on 1 sessions with the drill sergeants and group Q&A.

What it isn't:
This is not a bunch of sessions with powerpoint presentations and panelists preaching. The event is designed to be highly collaborative and consultative. Think white boards, brainstorming and conversations. No booths. No pushy sales guys. Just brilliant people sharing great ideas and experiences. If you don't want to be an active participant we ask that you don't register. This is a bootcamp... prepare to exercise your mind.
