I’m going to Convergence ’09 on May 11th.

Convergence '09I am very excited about Convergence ’09. It may prove to be one of the best digital marketing events in Vancouver this year. There are three reasons I make this statement.

  1. The keynote speaker is David Plouffe, Campaign Manager, Obama for America
  2. It takes place at the new Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre (although it went massively over budget, it is the only LEED certified convention centre in North America)
  3. Last year’s event rocked (and I’m not just saying that because I was on a panel)

Take a look at the program, there are all kinds of great topics.

Here’s a description of the talk by David Plouffe:

After winning the election on November 4, 2008, President Obama called Plouffe “the unsung hero of this campaign, who built the best political campaign, I think, in the history of the United States of America.” Credited with achieving one of the biggest upsets in American political history, his campaign generated a brand loyalty program with unprecedented success. Plouffe shares with the audience the election story and the process of developing a winning social media strategy that inspired millions to engage in the Obama campaign.

It takes place on May 11th. The price is $299 for the day, but they have early bird pricing on for $199. You can register for Convergence ’09 here.

Let me know if you’re going… I’ll see you there.
