Back in May, the first edition of TWTRCON–the conference on Twitter for business which I’m proud to have come up with–was held in San Francisco. It was a hit. And Modern Media, the events’s organizers, are taking the show to Washington DC. TWTRCON DC 09 will be held at the Grand Hyatt Washington DC on October 22nd; the keynote speaker is Craigslist founder Craig Newmark, and folks from Dunkin Donuts, the NHL, H&R Block, Intuit, and PepsiCo have agreed to share their knowledge, with more to come. As before, the topic is how to leverage the power of Twitter to make your business more successful, but given the venue, there will also be discussion of Twitter and government.
It should be a productive, provocative time–I hope you’ll attend if you’d like to learn what some very smart people are doing with the country’s hottest social network. Check out the TWTRCON site for ongoing updates on plans for the event.
