Been getting a lot of inquiries over what conferences I will be going to. Here is my outlook on spring 2008 as of right now.
SMX West – Feb 25-28th Santa Clara, CA – for some reason I have not made it to a SMX event yet. They started about the time my daughter was born and it just has no worked out. I am very happy to say I am going to my first SMX event this February. I will be on a panel at this event on a contextual panel with Jen Slegg
SXSW Interactive March 7-11 Austin, Texas. I have always wanted to goto SXSW but have never made it. Should be a good one! Also there is still time to enter the Shoeperstar Contest where you can win a all expense paid trip to the event! (details here)
SES NYC – Mon, March 17 – Thu, March 20 – I am still on the fence with this conference. I am probably not going to attend this one. We will see.
Elite Retreat – April 3rd, 4th San Francisco, CA I am really excited for this years Elite Retreat. Great lineup of speakers and attendees so far.
My life has changed so much from a few years ago when I used to go to as many conferences as I could. With a 20 month old toddler and another one on the way… Its really become challenging to find time for conferences. I have slowed down in speaking at events mainly because I just do not have time to do a presentation. Also we have a lot of projects and with fighters.com we will be traveling a lot for MMA events/interviews etc.. Should be a interesting spring/summer ;).
