#140Conf Offers New Format in 2011 With Local Events

140 Character Conferences (get the reference to Twitter?) have become well-known for their ability to explore how real-time Internet impacts business and life in a non-conference format. The fast-paced events (10-20 minute sessions) offers attendees tons of information, discussions, and tweet-able gems to share with others.

Jeff Pulver, who conceived the concept and hosted the first event in 2009, added a new facet to the event line-up this year:

#140 Local Events

Essentially, this means that you can curate your own #140Conf event in your hometown. If you’ve attended at least one #140Conf event before, you can submit to host one here.¬† (Speakers are also being rounded up for those events as well as non-local ones – speaker details here).

More and more #140Conf local events are being announced (by the day sometimes!) and Blog Conference Newbie Guide is adding them the to 2011 Blog Conference & Social Media Event List as details become available.

Recent #140Conf local additions are:

  • #Fashion140 Conference – May 4th
  • #140Conf¬† Des Moines – May 9th
  • #140Conf Central Sierra – May 24th

In addition, the following events are on the #140Conf roster for 2011:

  • Fashion140 Conference – May 4th
  • #140Conf NYC – June 15-16th
  • BrandConf – Fall 2011 (details not released yet)

Will a #140Conf event be headed to your neighborhood in 2011? Only time will tell!
