When you think of hot spots for social media activity Atlanta usually doesn't jump immediately to most people's minds. But there really is a lot going on down here. And while there have some good social media events in the ATL, we still don't have that signature event that really puts Atlanta on the social media map.
That all might be changing with New Media Atlanta, taking place on September 25th at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. NMATL will be an all day event very heavily focused on professional folks looking at social media from a business perspective. And to show how serious they are about making this a signature event, Chris Brogan is coming to town to speak!
In addition to Chris there will be a number of knowledgeable speakers to round out the day, including my buddy Desiree Scales of Bella Web Design. Desiree and Matt Fagioli - one of the event organizers - came down to the studios to record a conversation about the conference. They do a great job of giving me the scoop on what to expect for the day. All I can say is that I'm excited to be one of the speakers at what I think will be the first of many years for this cool event. And I'm not just saying this because the after party is going to be at a bowling alley. Did I mention my bowling prowess from back in the day? Time for me to get the old "soup bone" ready cuz I'm about to throw-down like I did back in the day!
Ok... let me calm down - bowling always gets to me... So check out the short conversation here (or download the mp3):
