Street Fight is proud to announce that we will be hosting our 2011 hyperlocal industry summit at 82 Mercer in New York on October 25th and 26th. The venue is in the center of Soho, in the former home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex.
We’ve already confirmed a great slate of top tier guests and moderators, including Vin Vacanti from Yipit, Warren Webster from Patch, Nate Richardson from Gilt City, and others, and now have posted a preliminary list of many of the panel and discussion topics that the conference will cover — ranging from how to create value for advertisers and users by stringing together hyperlocal content sites; new models to ensure that daily deals aren’t one-and-done; hyperlocal political advertising in the 2012 election cycle; lessons from the hyperlocal graveyard; and the coming convergence of various aspects of daily deals, location-based services, geospatial retail technology, and hyperlocally targeted news and information.
Recent additions to our list of panelists include Foursquare general manager Evan Cohen, Journal Register’s Jim Brady (who today was named editor-in-chief of the news chain), and DNAInfo publisher and editorial director Leela de Kretzer. Click here for more information about who will be appearing.
There are still a few sponsorship opportunities available, including presentations, exhibitor booths and branded meals. We’re a young conference and site, so our price points are flexible as we look to build long-term relationships with brands in the space. If you’re interested in getting your company’s brand in front of some of the very top thinkers and decision makers working in hyperlocal, we’re happy to find creative ways to get you the exposure you’re looking for and provide maximum value for your marketing investment.
