#Media140 London – Everything A Brand Needs To Know About Twitter & Real-Time Social Media

I’m attending the Media140 conference in London today. In fact, by the time you read this, I’ll already be there or perhaps still on the (0639) train. I’m excited, because the subject this time is brands, something which has become very much a part of my working life in the past few months.

Media140 London: How Is Real-Time Social Media Changing The Rules Of Consumer Engagement?

This is the second Media140 event. The previous and first, which I also attended in May of this year, was a huge success. This second event is bigger and by all accounts should be better, too – it’s completely sold out.

(The after-party is a blast. Tickets are still available here.)

I’ll be live-tweeting the entire event, which runs from 9am until about 6pm, and you can follow everything by tracking the #media140 hashtag on Twitter. If you follow me on Twitter, that’s pretty much all I’ll be tweeting about in the day.

Also, if you’re looking for a great list of people to follow, all of whom are involved with this year’s event, check out the Media140 list on TweepML.

If you’re attending tomorrow and want to say hello, I’ll be the guy with the shaved head and the black Samsung NC10 netbook. My default expression seems to be the scowl, but I assure you I’m a lot friendlier than I look. Would be nice to hook up, and put some names to faces. :)

The Media140 Microblogging Event (London, May 20, 2009)

Media140 will be the UK’s first micro-blogging event, bringing together the worlds of print, broadcast, online and social media together to debate and discuss the impact of new micro-blogging services such as twitter and how they are changing how news is being sourced and consumed.

The non-profit event to be held at Iris Digital on the 20th May is being sponsored and supported by Sky News, Telegraph, Iris Digital, Sun Microsystems, 6Consulting, Tweetmeme, Winston & Strawn Bootlaw, Times Online, Capital Business Media and Gorkana.

With speakers from mainstream media including BBC, The Times and Sky and their new media counterparts from Frontline Club and TechCrunch with a number of respected technology critics, commentators and academics scheduled to attend.

This event shows how the industry is starting to look across commercial boundaries to debate the impact of emerging trends such as twitter as the advertising and publishing markets feel the strain of the recession.

“Being part of this is important as it is an opportunity for us to discuss what twitter and similar services will mean for industry going forward. Critical to that is that this event is independent and non profit allowing a neutral platform for discussion.” ~ Laura Oliver,

“The Twitter storm is with us and I had originally planned to run this event informally to raise money for Mencap as part of a charity run. As I started to talk to colleagues in the industry it started to grow organically and has shown how the industry is keen to debate these trends early and find ways to empower their businesses rather than shy away from them. “ ~ Andrew Gregson, Founder

Early bird tickets are available at Twittercism readers can use the code Twittercism140 and receive a 10 per cent discount.

I’ll be in attendance and will be live-tweeting the event for Media140. If you’re going, drop me a message (or leave a comment on this blog) and we’ll hook up. I’m very much looking forward to it. :)
