After the success of 140 | The Twitter Conference in Mountain View this past May, we were anxious to bring the event to new cities and new audiences. We are happy to announce that on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 22-23rd, 2009, The Twitter Conference will take place at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA.
We are also excited to announce that Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter, Inc. has agreed to join us in L.A. and will be keynoting. Biz plans to discuss the evolution of communication and information in modern society, and in particular, Twitter’s emerging role in this ecosystem.
“We’re all working together to evolve the way we communicate and share information on the web and beyond,” says Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter. “I’m looking forward to an interesting exchange of thoughts and ideas at this Twitter Conference and I know from experience that The Parnassus Group throws an awesome event.”
Additional presentations by Twitter insiders will include API Lead Alex Payne, and Ryan Sarver from the Platform Team.
We’re currently processing the editorial feedback from the Mountain View event, reaching out to new speakers, and architecting new sessions. We’ll be expanding on our previous editorial themes, this time including a full two-day developer track alongside the main sessions.
The Skirball is a great venue, providing us with two full-size rooms and a beautiful outdoor courtyard for the reception after the conference on day one.
Once again we’ve fought hard to keep our costs (and therefore your costs) low. The whole two-day package, including breakfast and lunch, is only $199 if you register before July 10th. After that, the conference jumps to the regular price of $299, which lasts up until September 7th. The late bird price is $429.
Note that the last conference sold out, and this one will likely fill up early.
