I’ve been invited to IDC’s conference: IDC’s Asia/Pacific Directions 2008
“Tech X.0: Mastering New Business Models and Markets” at the Grand Copthorne this Friday. It’s a full day conference talking about various aspects of Web2.0 and the lineup looks pretty interesting.
The panel I’ll be present at is at 3:30pm, called Generation Y and the Emerging Power of User-generated Content
What makes younger generations tick? How do you reach them as a company and why is self-expression in the form of user-generated content becoming so important to today’s Internet generation?
Claus Mortensen moderates a panel of prominent young bloggers from around the Asia/Pacific region to get their perspective on these issues and more. This panel will give the audience a great opportunity to understand what motivates today’s “Generation Y”.
Tickets to the whole conference are available (and a little expensive), but I think businesses can definitely benefit from it. But for those of us who don’t otherwise have the money to spend, there’ll be a live webcast where you can ask questions to the panel. (Please don’t ask some killer question, ok?)
Quite a big honour to be invited to the panel since my presence in the social media world is probably about 100 days. Hope it’ll be a great experience!
