Digital Media Wire announced today its agenda and list of confirmed speakers for the forthcoming Millennials Conference to be held in Los Angeles on Wednesday, April 18, 2007, at UCLA's Grand Horizon Room at Covel Commons.
The one-day executive conference is the first event of its kind to focus on the much sought after Millennial Generation (those born between 1980 and 2000), which will outnumber both Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers by 2010, and will become the most significant consumer sector for the media and entertainment industries.
"This generation was the first to grow up immersed in networked digital media, which represents both a significant change and challenge for marketers," said Ned Sherman, CEO and Publisher, Digital Media Wire. "We're producing this conference to address a need in the marketplace for direction on how to grapple with this formidable opportunity."
The conference agenda represents the vanguard of this rapidly evolving landscape with panels and roundtable discussions, including:
--Who Are The Millennials? What Makes Them Different From The Other Generations?
--Virtual Worlds, The New Mass-Market of One: How to Build Buzz & Awareness with Social Networks, MMOGs & Virtual Worlds
--Meet The Millennials - Q&A with Our Panel of the New Generation
--Harnessing the Power of User-Generated Content
--The Buying Power of Millennials: How They Are Influencing Buying Decisions in the Digital Age
--The Power of Music: A Roundtable Discussion About Music & Millennials, and other in-demand and challenging topics.
Attendees are over 200 decision-makers from record labels, technology companies, wireless companies, industry bodies, gaming companies, advertising firms, attorneys, marketing companies, research companies and payment companies.
