I’m in the States for almost two weeks now. The first event I’m attending is the Mobile Commerce Forum here in Houston. Then I hop on a plane to visit WHITE SPACE, the invite-only summit focusing on all aspects of popular culture (of which mobile is playing an increasingly important part) and then I’m on to San Francisco next week for BlackBerry DevCon Americas.
I wanted to put a quick note out for those reading in New York — do you fancy coming along to WHITE SPACE? It’s looking like a seriously interesting event. I think I agreed to host a panel / table discussion so, instead of just sitting at the back and observing, I’m going to have to drink quite a bit of Diet Coke and get stuck in. Bring it on.
I know the organisers of the summit so if you think it might be of use, I reckon we might be able to swing a free ticket for some MIR readers. Drop me a note (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can make it to New York this Thursday. Diet cokes are on me!
As a reminder, here’s the overview:
WHITE SPACE, an exclusive invitation-only summit tailored to influencers and decision makers who help shape the direction of the business of popular culture, will take place on the afternoon of Thursday, October 13 at the Javits Center just hours before the doors open for New York Comic Con 2011. Conceived as a think tank for 100 masters and innovators in the fields of TV, film, comics, games, technology and advertising, WHITE SPACE is not a traditional conference, but is designed to foster open, transparent discussion between industry leaders. It will be kicked off by brief talks from three masters of media followed by small group discussions led by influential moderators.
WHITE SPACE executives will open this year’s event by describing plans for 2012 which call for a continuation of high-level discussion along with exhibits of the technology which is driving so much transformation in the pop culture universe.
