PR Camp New York City: Mark Your Calendar

PR Camp New York City has put together a solid lineup as far as “unconferences” go. Following the success of PR Camp Atlanta, Bernaise Source Media has set a new PR Camp date for the PR capital of the world, New York City. On Friday, November 20, 2009, public relations professionals will gather in New York to explore key issues facing the public relations industry, with a full day of interactive discussions on social media.

The format of the event is very relaxed and interactive, unlike traditional conferences. There are no panels or PowerPoint presentations, but rather moderators (a.k.a. “camp counselors”) will use scenarios based on case studies to guide participant discussions. There is already an impressive lineup of moderators and companies for the event, including:

  • Stephanie Agresta – EVP, Global Director of Digital Strategy and Social Media, Porter Novelli
  • Chris Andrew – Vice-President-Group Director Media, Digitas
  • Erin Byrne – Chief Digital Strategist, Burson-Marsteller
  • David Berkovitz – Senior Director of Emerging Media & Innovation, 360i
  • Joe Ciarallo – Editor, PRNewser.com and Manager, PR Initiatives, mediabistro
  • Stacy Green – Manager, Internal Comms. & Public Relations, New York Times
  • Janine Gianfredi, Marketing Manager, Google
  • Howard Greenstein – President and Social Media Strategist, Harbrooke Group
  • Andrea Harrison – Strategy Director, Razorfish
  • Peter Himler – Founding Principal, Flatiron Communications
  • Jim Issokson – VP, Reputation Management, MasterCard Worldwide
  • Morgan Johnston – Manager, Corporate Communications, JetBlue
  • Dina Kaplan – Co-Founder, blip.tv
  • Joe Kingsbury – Social Media Practice Lead, North America, Text 100
  • Jonathan Kopp – Global Director, Ketchum Digital
  • Peter Lucht – Executive Director, External Affairs, Verizon
  • Alex Norman – Executive Vice President, Schematic
  • Corvida Raven – Generation Yer and Blogger/Media Strategist, shegeeks.net
  • Steve Rubel – SVP, Director of Insights, Edelman Digital
  • Rachelle Spero – Executive Vice President, Digital Media, Cohn & Wolfe
  • Lloyd P. Trufelman, President & CEO, Trylon SMR, New York
  • Paull Young – Account Director, Converseon

PR Camp New York is recommended for PR, marketing and communications professionals at all levels, from business, non-profits, government agencies, associations and educational institutions. And in case you’re still on the fence about whether or not to attend, I hear there will be marshmallows and a virtual campfire to complete the “camp” motif. Might I suggest some hot chocolate as well? Chances are it will be chilly in New York in November.

For more information on the event click here. The Atlanta event sold out well in advance, so I would expect tickets for the New York event to go fast as well. There is an early-bird discount on tickets through the 30th of this month. I hope to see many of you at the event. Let me know if you’ll be attending and want to meet up around the event.
