More seats opening for ACCELERATE 2011!
As I have mentioned a few times before, the initial response to our ACCELERATE event announcement caught us off guard — we honestly didn’t plan to be full after a single day of registrations. Because we hate to disappoint folks we set about figuring out how to increase our room capacity, and thanks to the generosity of our sponsors Tealeaf, Ensighten, and OpinionLab, I’m happy to announce we have succeeded!
Between today and October 1st we will be accepting more registrations for the event on Friday, November 18th in San Francisco. These registrations will still be provisional (e.g., on the “wait list”) but we are committed to having a final list by the first week in October so that folks can make travel plans, etc. If you are interested in joining us, I strongly recommend you go to the ACCELERATE site and register today.
Speaking of the ACCELERATE site, we have added information about many of the fine folks who will be presenting “Ten Tips in Twenty Minutes.” We are extremely honored to have great speakers including Bill Macaitis, VP of Online Marketing at Salesforce.com, Michael Gulmann, VP of Global Site Conversion at Expedia, and a half-dozen other brilliant analysts, practitioners, and vendors representing great companies like Sony Entertainment, AutoDesk, Symantec, and many more.
What’s more, we are honored to have ESPN’s Ben Gaines, formerly of Omniture/Adobe fame and the creator of the @OmnitureCare twitter account. Ben will be sharing tips on managing expectations in vendor relationships and I have to say we’re pretty excited to be hosting Ben’s first “non-vendor” appearance in the web analytics world.
We have also put up a registration for the big Web Analytics Wednesday event we will be holding on Thursday, November 17th, generously sponsored by Causata, Coremetrics/IBM, iJento, and ObservePoint. The location is still TBD but is looking like Roe in downtown San Francisco.
So, if you’re interested in joining us at ACCELERATE, your action items today are:
- Register on the expanded wait list at the ACCELERATE web site
- Register for the Web Analytics Wednesday event
- Tweet something like “I want to attend #ACCELERATE 2011! http://j.mp/accelerate2011 #measure”
(Okay, the last action item is more of a wish-list thing for us … 😉
