Big Ass Party...Uh...ad-tech Conference Hits Chicago in August
Yes, it's time to pimp ad:tech. This time it's in Chicago and this time, aside from the fact there will be some decent keynotes from Google's Kevin Kells and author Clay Shirky as well as panels with Edelman President Rick Murray, Nielsen Online's Pete Blackshaw, Starcom's Chris Allen, NBC Universal's Peter Naylor and BlogHer's Jory Des Jardins among others, there will be great parties. After all, that's why you go, right? To get drunk and inappropriately fawn all over industry hotties...uh...I mean network with fellow industry colleagues.
This year, like last, it's at Navy Pier August 5-6 and will cover all the usual stuff like social media, mobile, search, widgets, email (yes, people still use email) and more. Check it out here and use the code BRCHZ9 to get a discount on registration.
If anything, it will be a chance to see Angela and I out from behind our laptops and, in a rare occurrence, mingling with the human race.
