I’m working with Jeff Pulver on sponsorship opportunities for a new #140Conf event.
Staying true to providing a platform for the worldwide social media community to: listen, connect, share and engage with each other, while collectively exploring the effects of the emerging real-time internet and social media on business, Jeff Pulver is teaming with Lilly Berelovich of Fashion Snoops to create the first ever #Fashion140 – http://fashion140.com
#Fashion140 is collaborative event examining how social media culture, and the use of real-time web platforms are reshaping the fashion business. My hope is to attract a diverse worldwide community of passionate people who will gather in New York City and connect with one another. The carefully curated speakers will each have 10 minute slots to share their first-hand accounts of how the emerging real-time Internet has impacted their part of the Fashion industry. Our panel discussions will run from 10 to 20 minutes each.
Fashion140 is not an event about micro blogging or about sharing Twitter “tips and techniques,” but rather it is the place where we will explore the effects of the real-time Internet across the fashion industry ecosystem.
Please follow @Fashion140Conf for up-to-date information about this event.
