What’s UGCX all about?

User-generated content is a rapidly developing revolution in media. “Average Joe” internet users now wield power over online content, and new business models are emerging in response to this shift. UGCX is the first conference and expo organized to bring together content-trendsetters and business leaders in various fields to examine how these worlds collide and what the future holds. This new mediabistro.com event will unlock the knowledge businesses and non-profits need to respond to this shift.

The conference is Feb. 9-10 in San Jose. Register here.
