As mesh looks for new ways to engage attendees and the community, we’re excited about a new partnership with Digital Journal Inc., which will provide a real-time newsroom for mesh ’13, which takes place on May 15/16 at the Allstream Centre in Toronto.
At mesh ‘13, sponsors that want to gain exposure, amplification and be part of the discussion can tap into a team of journalists, marketers and analysts in the mesh/newsroom. The mesh/newsroom will produce content and social media coverage to create discussion and momentum around event topics, attendees and sponsors.
“We’re excited about the new partnership with Digital Journal,” says Mark Evans, mesh cofounder and programming coordinator. “The mesh/newsroom will become our social media nerve centre where the most relevant and engaging content will be surfaced and sponsors will be showcased in completely new ways.”
The mesh/newsroom sponsorship opportunity will only be available to a select number of brands that will receive intense social media coverage and real-time content marketing support to drive engagement with the mesh audience before, during and after the event.
“We’re excited to be partnering with mesh because it creates an immediate and valuable opportunity for brands to engage in real-time content marketing,” says Digital Journal CMO and /newsrooms cofounder Sabaa Quao.
“The mesh conference generates a huge volume of social media conversations. There is a great lineup of speakers and prominent attendees who will attend and that is the formula that event sponsors look for. This year, the mesh/newsroom will deliver something they’ve never seen before.”
Early-bird tickets for mesh can be purchased now for $499, a $150 discount off regular prices, until Feb. 15. One-day passes are available for $399, while student tickets can be picked up for $99. Here’s where you can buy tickets.
