Crowdopolis is back by popular demand, and this time we're going to the East Coast. The 2nd installment will take place February 27 & 28, 2013 in New York City. This 2-day conference is geared towards Fortune 500 employees who want to learn how crowdsourcing can solve their common business problems. Today also marks the start of the interest list for anyone considering attending. Hosting Crowdopolis: Big Apple in New York finally gives a chance for the East Coast to see why Crowdopolis is considered one of the hottest new conferences.
The innaugural Crowdopolis: LA took place last June and was a huge success featuring valuable presentations from GE, Kimberly-Clark, and eBay, to name a few. Some familiar faces will be returning to New York's longer, 2-day event, along with some fresh new Fortune 500 case studies & insights. Anyone interested in attending should join the interest list to take advantage of early announcement reminders. Tickets will go on sale in October. As Stephen Paljieg, Sr. Marketing Director for Kimberly-Clark, put it, "Get connected to the thought leaders in crowdsourcing by attending Crowdopolis."
The original Crowdopolis programmed a compelling mix of presentations from Fortune 500 leaders, thought leaders, and top crowdsourcing vendors. The highest rated speakers include Ville Miettinen, CEO of Microtask (100% approval), Stephen Paljieg, Sr. Director of Marketing for Kimberly-Clark (96% approval), Peter LaMotte, President of GeniusRocket (95% approval), and Lisa Kennedy, CMO of GE Healthymagination (93% approval). More stats will be published Friday in our wrapup post.
"At Crowdopolis, I discovered new ways that crowdsourcing can apply to our business. We're looking forward to working with a couple of the vendors that we met that day and have followed up with since."
Sara Desmond, Diageo
Since Daily Crowdsource likes innovating transparently, we'll be building this conference with our crowd to make sure we provide the best experience. Speakers, sessions, & all other details will be announced in the coming weeks. For those that found the CoolHaus ice cream break (provided by Smartling) a great way to be creative and get people networking, wait until we reveal what we've got scheduled for New York.
"Even if you think you know about crowdsourcing, the information you get at Crowdopolis will help you learn so much more. There is a reason why Fortune 500 companies use it, because there is a huge value in it... if you use it right!"
Josie Roman, Examiner
New for 2013: Based on the feedback we collected, we'll provide more purposeful opportunities for you to network with the right people. No one wants to be stuck sitting next to someone that sucks. I sure don't so I'll be sure none of you do either. Also, we've already planned multiple opportunities for Q&A with the speakers, more networking opportunities, but more importantly a clear way to find the right person to talk with.
Crowdopolis will continue to curate every presentation to adhere to our strict "No Sales Pitches" format - Only valuable info. Day 2 will allow attendees to dive even deeper into possible product offerings.
"Crowdopolis is a terrific way to meet both crowdsourcing creators and crowdsourcing consumers. Lots of ideas sparking from both the formal speakers and informally with the people you meet at Crowdopolis. Highly recommended."
Gavin Bourne, Embee Mobile
Crowdopolis is the hottest conference on the future of crowdsourcing labor. The 2nd conference will take place February 27-28, 2013 in New York. The event is geared towards employees of innovative Fortune 500 Corporations that wish to stay ahead of their competition. The event features a high level overview of what are the most common business problems currently being solved with crowdsourcing, followed by in-depth discussions and workshops that explain how.
"If you are considering making a purchase decision in the crowdsourcing space, I would highly recommend attending Crowdopolis."
