The #140conf events provide a place for the community to interact and learn from one another. The schedule is fast paced, allowing as many people as possible to share and engage. After hosting the event in cities like Los Angeles, New York and London, Jeff is bringing the conference to the Midwest for the first time on October 20 at The Fillmore in downtown Detroit. There is already a lot of hype surrounding the event, and Jeff himself believes that there is no better place to host the conference than here in Detroit.
The focus of the conference will surround “exploring the state of now” and how real-time web impacts our daily lives. Although the name is a play on Twitter’s character limit, this is not just a social media conference. It’s for anyone who engages in or is impacted by the web, with topics spanning politics, entertainment, fashion and public safety issues.
I highly encourage everyone to check out this event, or at least learn more about Jeff himself – whether you’re from Detroit, the Midwest or beyond. Early bird tickets are on sale now for $100; regular price is $140. For those interested in sharing their story, there is still time to fill out the speaking submission form – applications are due August 6.
