TWTRCON SF 2010: The Case Studies

Hey @SouthwestAir! Look how fat I am on your plane! Quick! Th... on TwitpicTWTRCON SF 2010 will be a one-day total immersion in the case studies, the practical skills and the tools that companies need to stay at the cutting edge of the real-time web.  We’ve added a lot of beefy content for the November 18 event (download a PDF of the full agenda here), but the heart and soul of TWTRCON have always been the case study presentations.

At TWTRCON SF 2010, we’re excited to have confirmed speakers from a broad range of brands.  Some speakers may be familiar to you, like Ford Motor Company’s Scott Monty, but we also have stories from small businesses (The Roxy Theatre, Curry Up Now) and from companies less familiar to U.S. audiences, such as India’s Parle Agro.  If you’re looking for a reason to register now, you don’t need to look much further than this lineup:
