    Web 2.0 Conferences

      Has anyone attended or know of any good Web 2.0 conference that would be good to attend or have my leadership team attend?

          Since we are in Clearstep, I imagine your reference to "Web 2.0" means social/community programs on the web...

           

          I attended the "Communities Exchange" conference late last year, and it was a great primer for me.  A lot of industry leaders in enterprise/B2B communities were there (Intel, Dell, EMC, Microsoft, Oracle to name a few), and there was plenty of time to sit down and talk with these folks face-to-face and ask questions.

           

          Unfortunately, I was the youngest person there (25), so I became the "token millenial/digital native" during the conference and was grilled during the Q&A portion.

           

          Not sure if they're doing it again, but I think it's a great introduction to the Community space.

            I attended Web 2.0 in NY last year and enjoyed it. Since I am focussed on an internal community, however, it wasn't directly targeted to my needs but I still got value from it. I am looking forward to attending the Enterprise 2.0 conference this year.

             

            Full disclosure: my company produces both of these conferences

              Forum One is hosting the Online Community Business Fourm 2009 in Sonoma, California on March 19-20 which should be a good one to attend.

              Hope this helps!
