It seems all that I’ve been posting lately have been about conferences, well, here’s another 🙂 I wrote about other sponsored roadshows like this one which provide you the opportunity to receive strong thought leaders to you as well as offer an opportunity to network. KUDOS to 1) event planners for making this happen and 2) those on the road at each conference.
Silverpop, my former alma mater, hosted an informative event here in their hometown of Atlanta as the next to the last stop of the tour. Hosted at the Intercontinental Hotel, the meeting rooms where in close proximity to each other. It was nice to catchup with former colleagues who are new friends as well as new faces at Silverpop and Atlanta marketers.
I arrived a bit early and had the opportunity to reintroduce myself with Adam Stienberg (@adams472) co-founder of PlacePunch, Silverpop’s newest acquisition. The company offers a location-based loyalty program platform via the common social networks. This is a differentiating new social offering on top of social sign-in (via janrain) and the Share-to-Social feature introduced by the company in October 2008. Great offering for their B2C base. I was told that Adam’s preso on the usage of location-based marketing was one of the B2C crowd’s favorite. Congratulations Adam and Chris.
