Hit the Ground Running for the Pivot Conference with Brian Solis + Friends.

If you know who Brian Solis is or follow him on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin or other social media networks, this introduction will be pretty superfluous. However if you don’t know Brian Solis — or about the Pivot Conference— here is a bit of 411 that you need to read and then act on pretty fast since the conference is next week. ACT QUICKLY because as I am writing this, the conference has not yet sold out. It is limited to 500 participants.

For those seeking to learn more about the virtual social world we live in– this is a must attend event. Yet it’s going to sell out before we hit the weekend.

Pivot is the only conference focused purely on how major brands, agencies, marketers and content creators can succeed by understanding, accessing and influencing the emerging Social Consumer. This is one of the most important conferences/events because it actually places the consumer squarely in the middle of the social universe and seeks to understand, influence and engage said consumer. This amazing conference takes place at the Crowne Plaza Times Square on October 17th and 18th, 2011.

“The experts assembled on stage will reveal how to define and support effective Social experiences,” said Pivot Host and Editorial Director, Brian Solis “The conference agenda is rich with unique content and provocative thought leadership, structured to foster deep learning, engagement, and creative thinking. Rooted in the needs and challenges of connected customers, Pivot will explore the next big shift in Social consumer behavior.”

The conference is a story arc told with a beginning, middle and end: essentially a journey that follows the paths Social Consumers use to make decisions, establish relationships with friends, like-minded people, and the companies that capture their attention.

The program is based on consumer, media, and business research of Pivot Editorial Director Brian Solis and his years of work with leading brands and agencies. Pivot is divided into chapters ranging from the deep human roots of Social Consumer behavior through disruption in audience, technology and transactions to explorations of what lies ahead for branding, commerce and culture.

Each hour is action-packed with discussions and dramatic presentations based on the needs and challenges of connected consumers, businesses and the service providers in between. Every aspect of the conference is designed to inspire new ideas and drive action
