Final Thoughts on BIA/Kelsey ILM East 2012; Looking Forward to ‘Search Starts Here’ Next Month
March 28, 2012 | Contributed by: Stephanie Hobbs
This morning wraps up a very successful BIA/Kelsey ILM East in Boston, with a final round of A-List speakers from across the country. Opening with a series of interviews, Peter Krasilovsky, vice president and program director at BIA/Kelsey, talked with Merrill Brown, principal at MMB Media, Josh Fenton, cofounder and CEO of GoLocal24 and Zohar Yardeni, CEO of Main Street Connect.
Later in the morning, Ted Leonsis, vice chair of Groupon and an American Express Board Member, delivered a thought-provoking keynote address and answered questions from the floor.
The morning ended with the “SMB SuperForum: Focusing on Local Business Success” session, a great wrap-up of the key takeaways from the past three days. A group of leaders also demoed some of their innovative “top” sites.
