The Rise of Social Commerce event is now SOLD OUT.  The phone has been ringing off the hook to accept new registrations, but unfortunately, we cannot. My heart says yes, but the fire codes say that we are FULL. <SORRY>

Lot’s of interest.  Attention is sky rocketing.   This is consistent with the research that we have done for the Report on Rise of Social Commerce.  While only 20% of 53 companies interviewed stated that they used the term social commerce and had a strategy in place for 2010, over 86% say that they will have a strategy to implement a Social Commerce Strategy for 2011.  The good news for technology providers is that it is NET new funding by the line of business leaders.

Want to understand more?  Just because you will not be at the event does not mean that you will have to miss it.  We will be broadcasting the event live through USTREAM.  (check it out at http://www.ustream.tv/rsc10.)  As you watch the feed, you can communicate with us live during the event.  The Twitter streams (will be aggregated) and discussed on stage.  Just use the Hashtag #RSC10.  We will also be taking questions through the twitter stream. There will also be 10 active bloggers at the site.  Look for those posts and check-out what you missed by watching the archived stream.

At the event, we will also be showing and archiving video of REAL people doing REAL things with social technologies.  These videos are aggregated from participants in the EXPOTV community< like this one from EXPO member Kelly L from Ohio speaking about mobile applications that she would like to see….>.  Seeing real folks talking about social really brings the concepts home for me.  And, I hope for you also.

If you are attending live, the weather in California is beautiful. If you are attending virtually, enjoy!  It is going to be a great event.
