Web 2.0 Expo NYC CFP is Open Plus Webcast For Submission Tips This Week

web 2.0 expo nyc

The Web 2.0 Expo is returning to NYC this fall for a third year. The Call For Proposals (CFP) opens today and will remain so until 4/12/10. We are accepting talk proposals aimed at developers, designers, marketers and business folks. We are looking for

Sarah Milstein and I will be returning as co-Chairs. After the CFP closes we will spend several weeks working with our East Coast-based program committee examining and rating the proposals. We will announce the schedule in the early summer/end of spring timeframe.

Every year we get hundreds of proposals for just over a hundred slots. With that many proposals it is hard to stand out. We want to make sure that you know how to best describe your awesome ideas and put your best foot forward. To aid you Sarah and I are hosting a free webcast on writing a good proposal this Thursday at 1PM PST (9am – London | 4pm – New York | 8pm – Sydney | 6pm – Tokyo | 5pm – Beijing | 1:30pm – Mumbai).

We’ll talk for about 20 minutes through a variety of do’s (tell us what attendees will learn) and don’ts (submit the proposal yourself and don’t pitch your product). We’ll remain online afterwards to answer questions. We think that the advice will be applicable to any conference (either O’Reilly or another event producers) – so feel free to attend even if you don’t want to speak in NYC. A recording of the webcast will be made available at a later date.

    Is there a recording of the webinar? Your post says it will take place Thursday. When you click through it says that it took place on the 29th, which was Monday. A little confused…Thanks
