Coremetrics and SiteSpect: Global Web Analytics Wednesday sponsors!
As Web Analytics Wednesday continues to gain momentum around the world leading into what is shaping up to be the largest event in WAW history in San Francisco on Tuesday, May 6th, I am pleased to announce that Coremetrics and SiteSpect have both signed on to be global sponsors of this event.
You can read the press release here but the essence of this announcement is that these great companies share my vision for what Web Analytics Wednesday is becoming — the largest and most widely recognized gathering of web analytics professionals in the world. In sharing the vision, their management teams have graciously decided to provide financial support to allow Analytics Demystified provide more reimbursement to a larger number of events around the world.
Starting today, we are pleased to be able to help emerging Web Analytics Wednesday chapters cover the cost of providing food and drink to participants. You can read about the WAW sponsorship policy here and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to write me directly.
On behalf of myself, my wife Amity who provides event support, June, and every Web Analytics Wednesday host and participant around the world I want to thank Coremetrics and SiteSpect for their vision and contribution. So far in April nearly 700 people have signed up to participate in Web Analytics Wednesday and we’re well on the way to beat my goal of 5,000 participants worldwide in 2008!
In other Web Analytics Wednesday news …
- I will be in New York this coming Wednesday giving a short Web Analytics Wednesday presentation on “The Future of Web Analytics” at the headquarters of Avenue A/Razorfish. This event is being organized by Joel Collymore, one of the WAW hosting superstars, and promises to be a great event (over 115 people are signed up to attend already!) Sign up here to join us since we need to add you on the security list at the door!
- Don’t forget, if you live in the Bay Area in Northern California or are coming to Emetrics, we are having what is likely to be the largest WAW event in history at the Fluid Nightclub on Mission Avenue. This special WAW on Tuesday, May 6th is open to all web analytics practitioners regardless of whether you’re going to Emetrics or not so please sign up to join us!
- Just in case you live in French Polynesia, the first ever Web Analytics Wednesday event is being held on Bora Bora in Tahiti. Steve Jackson, blogger, consultant, and likely soon-to-be EUWAA leader is heading to Bora Bora for his honeymoon and has offered to help spread the good word. While his new bride will almost certainly not think it amusing, if you can get to Bora Bora I’m buying the drinks!
I am especially excited about the San Francisco event because Coremetrics, ForeSee Results, SiteSpect, and Tealeaf have all made significant sponsorship donations, giving us quite a lot of lattitude to entertain. It looks like our efforts are paying off as the sign-up list is a virtual who’s who of web analytics thought-leaders, practitioner talent, and consulting genius!
