At a previous job I was in charge of the ecommerce and content properties and web analytics was one of my big areas of focus. Our primary analytics provider was WebsideStory (now called Visual Sciences), and each year they held a user conference where customers of their product got together with the staff at WebsideStory to learn, share, network, and have fun. It was an event I enjoyed a great deal as a customer and someone interested in the analytics space.
Along those lines, I’m very excited to not only be attending but taking part in Right Media’s first event called the Right Media Open taking place October 22-24 in Half Moon Bay. It’ll be a great chance for everyone involved to learn more about each other and the online advertising industry, make connections and relationships, and of course have some fun. There’s an impressive list of industry executives attending, and some surprises coming.
The agenda, partial speaker list, and activities (Segway tours!) are now up on the event website. It is an invite-only event due to space limitations, but if you haven’t received an invite and think you’re interested in going, you can state your case with me.
