The second annual Street Fight Summit West, a hyperlocal marketing conference and one of the industry’s most talked-about events, is happening today at the Bently Reserve in downtown San Francisco.
Organized by hyperlocal media company Street Fight, #SFSW13 is set to gather a star-studded lineup of speakers, local marketing executives, agency and brand execs, startup entrepreneurs, local business owners, and other industry professionals. (If you’re in San Fran, don’t hesitate to get your ticket and check out the show!)
The event – much like the two-day Street Fight Summit in New York earlier this year (of which the ReviewTrackers team was part) – will put a spotlight on what’s happening in social, local, and mobile (“SoLoMo”) marketing today. There will be panels, keynote presentations, fireside chats, and debates, with key discussion topics that include the impact of mobile apps on local commerce, the evolution of online business listings and local search, and the ongoing viability of local news and information as a draw for online advertising.
Confirmed participants include: Mike Ghaffary, VP of Business Development for online reviews aggregator Yelp; local search strategist David Mihm of SEOMoz; Chuck Kimble, Head of Strategic Partnerships at mobile credit card payment app Square; Wiley Cerilli, VP and GM of Constant Contact’s SinglePlatform online listings solution; Patrick Gauthier, Product Strategy and Business Operations Head for PayPal; Rob Reed, CEO of Momentfeed; and Chris Tolles, CEO and co-founder of local forum site Topix. (You can check out the full speaker lineup here.)
