#140Conf Events Update; Sponsorship Opportunities Abound

As a friend of the #140Conf Community, here’s update on upcoming events and opportunities for you to connect and engage with other members of the community.

#140Conf NYC Update:

We’ve just had  Sprint join us as a sponsor of #140conf NYC. It took two years but we’re happy to report that “The NOW Network” and “The State of NOW” are now working together.  If you are interested in sponsorship information, please reach out to me – alan at weinkrantz dot com.  We have some very unique program offerings and a compelling and targeted reach.


Special thanks to everyone who took the time to submit a speaking proposal for the upcoming #140conf NYC event taking place on June 15th and 16th at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.  Several hundred speaking proposals were received from friends based across North America, with some additional proposals received from: Europe, South America and Asia.

Jeff is still reviewing the proposals and curating our conference schedule. While he will not be able to place everyone who expressed an interest in speaking, he appreciates  the interest in being part of the event. 

If you are planning on attending #140conf NYC and joining the worldwide #140conf community gathering, now would be a great time to REGISTER.



Fashion140: May 4th at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center

Fashion140 is our new groundbreaking fashion event for 2011 taking place on May 4th at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center. At Fashion140 we will be exploring how social media is changing the Fashion Industry. It will be the first conference of it’s kind to take a hard look at how the adoption of the real-time social web is changing the way the fashion industry works.

This event will be really great because Jeff is  co-hosting this event with his partner, Lilly Berelovich of Fashion Snoops. 

Again, a big shout out to  everyone responsible for the overwhelming positive response we received from our first “Call for Speakers.” We are currently working on curating the schedule and confirming the speakers for this event.  And like the #140Conf NY, if you are interested in sponsorship info, please reach out to me.

“Early Bird” registration for Fashion140 ends on March 11th.  To register, please visit:
