We estimate local online revenue will grow from $18.7 billion in 2012 to $51.2 billion by 2017. The Borrell Local Online Advertising Conference will help you identify how to capture the most in your market. The Borrell conferences also bring the best and brightest to the stage. Past speakers include Jeff Jarvis, Clay Christensen and Chuck Martin.They have presented some of the most compelling and insightful presentations in the business.
"The sessions I attended gave me the 'ammo' I needed to prove my digital case back home... we have a very supportive digital environment here, but lack the man-hours of involvement with others besides me. When I come back with strong evidence for investing in particular technologies or directions, it helps move the wheels upstairs. I'm not a director or VP, 'just' a digital sales manager, so having Borrell feels like having a partner I can point to and say 'see, they're agreeing with me' and then I can get the buy in." Nathan Kauffman, Digital Sales Manager, WHEC.
"Best training conference in our industry." Glen Callanan, Director of Interactive Sales, WGN TV.
Our agenda is the biggest draw. Unlike other conferences, speakers are selected because of their understanding of "local" and their focus on "following the money" rather than the hype. We also take care to separate vendors from speakers, ensuring that you don't hear sales pitches from the stage.Networking is also a valuable part of any great conference. You'll be able to mingle with colleagues from yellow pages, TV, radio, Internet pure-play, cable and newspapers who are trying to capitalize on the fast-growing mobile advertising industry.Vendors are a big part of the show, and we've already begun signing up the leading vendors to be available on the exhibit floor. Yellow Pages will be this year's Platinum sponsor.
