The eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit happens May 4-7 and I'm so looking forward it! Although the conference is practically walking distance from home I still think of it as a Big Trip. Here's what I'm excited about:
I get to speak. James Gardner and I will do a modified reprise of the presentation we gave at eMetrics DC last fall, and we'll be sharing the hour with the inimitable Dylan Lewis and Mark Brooks. The four of us have worked out a nicely-coordinated set of talks focused on career development and staffing in web analytics. Read about our track.
I also get to listen. With gusto I will attend as many sessions as I can. After the conference I'll do a write-up on my blog. If you just can't wait that long I may also post some juicy tidbits on Twitter (tsk, Twitter) so feel free to follow me.
And I am throwing a big party. Have you not heard? Web Analytics Wednesday happens on May 6th and you're invited. Muchas gracias to Eric T. Peterson, David Rogers, our fine sponsors (Coremetrics, SiteSpect, ForeSee, Tealeaf and eMetrics), our super volunteers and every single participant. Sign up now if you haven't already. We already have more than 160 web analytics professionals signed up to attend!
If you're attending eMetrics and you'd like to meet, please introduce yourself - I still look like the picture on my blog, except I have a new short haircut. If you are in the vicinity but you can't spring for an eMetrics ticket, don't despair! There are 3 associated free activities during the week: Web Analytics Wednesday, the WAA Raucous Caucus, and the eMetrics Expo-Only pass.
Here's to eMetrics. It's going to be a busy week but a lot of fun.
