The ILM:09 conference Dec. 9-11 in LA is now just around the corner. We’ve handpicked 60 cutting-edge speakers, and we think we are onto something that is really important. I can tell you that signups have been great, too.
Recent adds to the speaker roster include Twitter’s Anamitra Banerji and AT&T Interactive’s Greg Issacs, who will be joining Facebook’s Tim Kendall and Citysearch’s Kara Nortman on our “Social/Local” panel.
We’ve also added Trinity Ventures’ Patricia Nakache, who joins Canaan Partners’ Warren Lee and Comcast Interactive’s Michael Yang on our “Money” panel.
Also, U.S. Local News Network’s Chris Jennewein joins USC Annenberg’s Geneva Overholser on “the Future of Local Media” session. And European Directories’ Simon Greenman joins Skype’s Andy Sims on “Skype’s Local Revolution” (especially interesting!)
My colleague Mike Boland also has added several top execs to the Mobile Superforum and our Pre-Conference on Local Search — a very useful “hands on” session for state-of-the-art local search tips and best practices.
Here’s the final lineup for the Mobile Superforum:
Sanjeev Agrawal, Aloqa
Surojit Chatterjee, Google
Steve Espinosa, Appetizr
Alistair Goodman, Placecast
Greg Hallinan, CMO, Verve Wireless
