Brief Summary From 2009 Cambridge Conference In Vancouver

Posted by AGORACOM at 11:37 AM on Tuesday, June 9th, 2009


I’ve got a full day of meetings today after 2 days of exhibiting/sponsoring the 2009 World Resource Investment Conference on at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver.  However, I’d like to give you a very brief summary of events:


The Conference was very well attended by investors that were still looking for their next great investment.  The AGORACOM booth was busy throughout the entire 2 days, as were the booths of quality exhibiting companies.


Unlike attendees, the number of exhibiting companies was WAY down.  Something to the tune of 400 last year to 125 this year.  Personally, I don’t mind this because I’ve been preaching for a year that we had too much garbage in the space.  Now, we have quality of over quantity, which is the very reason behind The AGORACOM 100.


My Speaker Workshop on Sunday along with Peter Grandich called, “Learn To Use Blogs, Twitter and RSS Feeds To Make You A Power Investor” was packed.  Standing room only.  What was it about?  For years, CEOs and IROs have ignored them as irrelevant and having quirky names, but with tens of millions of investors using them, public companies incorporating them and even the SEC green lighting them for investor relations, you now need to understand how social media tools can supercharge your market knowledge. The workshop was the initial step in teaching investors how how to use social media to cut through clutter, get the information you need directly to you and connect with the smartest people on the planet.

It was so well received that I am going to create a webcast out of the event and re-broadcast it here, along with a series of short videos on iGoogle, Twitter, Blogs and RSS Feeds.

That’s it for now.  Catch you later.
