Taking place this weekend in beautiful Banff, Alberta is nextMEDIA, an event for content producers, media executives, and digital entrepreneurs. At last year's nextMEDIA, over "$13 million in new deals were negotiated." As you can see from the list of speakers, there are a lot of heavy hitters at this event, including Maria Hale from Telus, Steve Billinger from CBC/Radio-Canada, and Joseph Ferreira from CBS Interactive.
If you spend a lot of time online like I do, you'll probably find this list of speakers more familiar: Kris Krug from Raincity Studios, Markus Frind from Plentyoffish, Jim Louderback from Revision3, Boris Wertz from Nexopia, Jeremy Wright from b5media, and Jeff Barr from Amazon.com.
The event kicks off on Friday afternoon at the Fairmont Banff Springs. Saturday and Sunday are absolutely packed with keynotes and other sessions, and I look forward to bringing you the best of it here at Techvibes. I'll be there for the entire weekend, covering the event.
