Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Boston coming soon!

While our annual Enterprise 2.0 Executive Forum is the biggest Enterprise 2.0 event in Australasia and Asia, the global landmark event for Enterprise 2.0 is definitely the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Boston, coming up on June 22-25. As I am a blogger partner of the conference, you can get a 30% discount by registering through the button on the right of this post.

Notable keynote speakers at the conference include Andrew McAfee of HBS and Matthew Fraser, co-author of Throwing Sheep in the Boardroom, as well as a host of senior executives from companies that are implementing Enterprise 2.0.

The White Paper produced for the event has some interesting statistics from a very recent survey, as below. The other key statistic, not surprising but certainly gratifying to vendors, is that 65% of respondents expect spending on Enterprise 2.0 by corporates to increase in 2009 compared to last year.

Other key features of the conference include workshops, the Enterprise2Open unconference, and the excellent Launch Pad competition for new Enterprise 2.0 offerings.

I would have loved to have got to the conference, but my second child is due to be born to between now and then, so I’m afraid she or he will be is a somewhat higher priority for me. :-)
