Web 2.0 Summit is the only place, once a year, where leaders of the Internet Economy gather to debate and determine business strategy. Join the leadership of this extraordinary industry this November 15-17 in San Francisco.

Fifteen years and two recessions into the commercial Internet, it's clear that our industry has moved into a competitive phase—a "middlegame" in the battle to dominate the Internet Economy. At this year's Web 2.0 Summit, we're focusing on these shifting points of control—strategic chokepoints on an increasingly crowded board

Over 50 leaders and global executives including Julius Genachowski(Chairman, FCC), Ariel Emanuel (CEO, WME Entertainment), Carol Bartz (CEO, Yahoo!), Mark Zuckerberg (CEO, Facebook), Sukhinder Singh Cassidy (CEO, Polyvore), and Robin Li (Chairman & CEO, Baidu) will join us onstage this year.

The Web 2.0 Summit program features companies who are changing strategy and moving into new fields of battle. We'll map strategic inflection points and identify key players who are battling to control the services and infrastructure of a websquared world.

Web 2.0 Summit gathers the intelligence, innovation, and leadership of the Internet and media industries for a conversation that never fails to stimulate, push, and surprise. Only at Web 2.0 Summit can you engage in an event with:

  • A surprise visit from Google founder Sergey Brin
  • Real-time search announcements from GoogleMicrosoft, Facebook, and Twitter
  • Insights from Ariel Emanuel, Robin Li, Mary Meeker, Yuri Milner, Jeremy Stoppelman, and dozens more
  • Deep conversations with Tony Hseih (CEO, Zappos.com), Susan Lyne (CEO, Gilt Group), Jack Dorsey (Chairman, Twitter; CEO, Square), and a rare conference appearance by Jim Balsillie (CEO, RIM).

Be sure to mark your calendars for the seventh annual Web 2.0 Summit‚ happening November 15-17, 2010. We’re busy putting the finishing touches on this year’s speaker lineup so be sure to sign up before all seats are sold—as they have been for the past five years.
