We are very pleased to extend a special invitation for all SMC members to join us for the first annual Seattle Interactive Conference, a major two-day event set for November 2-3 celebrating the convergence of online technology, creativity, and emerging trends in one of the world’s most innovative cities. SIC brings together entrepreneurs, developers and online business professionals from throughout the US and beyond for a powerful combination of in-depth presentations, networking opportunities, and uniquely Seattle social events.
An event of this nature is long overdue for the Pacific Northwest and we are very happy to extend a great discount offer for all SMC members to get $100 off the price of registration when you use the code smc2011. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to explore disruptive technologies and business models from industry thought leaders and peers in areas ranging from online commerce and social media to gaming, interactive advertising, entertainment, and much more.
The speaker line-up is packed with local and national interactive industry veterans, including some SMC members like Shauna Causey of Nordstrom, Jonathon Colman of REI, Kevin O’Reily of Spring Creek Group, Erica May of Pop Cap Games, Blake Cahill of Banyan Branch and Sean O’Driscoll of Ant’s Eye View, among others.
We have also planned some great after-parties each night, starting with the pre-event ‘Battle of the Geek Bands’ contest and party set for the evening of November 1. Held at Showbox SoDo, the November 1 pre-SIC party also features an exclusive set performed by The Presidents of the United States of America. The evening of November 2 will find a digital vs analog DJ set with FOURCOLORZACK vs. DJ NEIGHT1000, held at the Showbox Market, with Shabazz Palaces performing, as well. Entrance to these events is free for all SIC attendees.
We’ll be announcing some final additions to the event’s overall agenda and speaker roster, as well as some more closing party artists soon. Overall, SIC is shaping up to bring our region the world-class technology event it deserves — from professional, networking, and social standpoints. So, go register now and don’t forget to use the code smc2011! See you in November.
And, as a special treat, we want to offer one of you a FREE pass. Simply leave a comment below saying which speaker you are looking to hearing from the most and you’ll be eligible to win. Simple!
