Well, we are at the opening session for the Kelsey Group’s Interactive Local Media conference.. There are 450 attendees and 60 panelists and speakers that will be presenting over the next 3 days.
As we mentioned, the conference is not specifically for online video, but there is a heavy focus as we all know small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) are gravitating more and more to online video marketing. In addition, we have seen directories like superpages, citysearch, and others beginning to focus heavily on online video offerings for SMBs. So, this will be a great conference as the focus will be on directories, search, video, mobile, and much more..
As I am typing, they are discussing what The Kelsey Group is and why we are here…. Rather than re-post this, I would encourage all of you that are unfamiliar with The Kelsey Group to take a look at their website as the offer great research and are really thought leaders in the local interactive space.
