See you in San Francisco at the BIAKELSEY Leading in Local Conference

See you in San Francisco at the BIAKELSEY Leading in Local Conference

As is customary 3-4 times per year, the Local search, Local Advertising, Local commerce and Location based marketing industry meets together  to learn from their peers and see whats new. Every December, BIAKELSEY has its Leading in Local conference in San Francisco and we will of course be there. In fact, this year we will be on a panel speaking about Local Commerce, Transaction Marketing and representing Canada.

Thus far, there are no conferences or events in Canada dedicated to the sector of Local Commerce or Location Based Marketing. We, at Local Commerce Canada, are certainly interested in seeing such an event take place in this country. The industry in Canada is large enough to support it. In the meantime, we are very pleased to promote the industry’s main events on Local marketing from BIAKELSEY.

Their next event, titled Leading in Local, is in San Francisco from December 10th to the 12th. It is loaded with industry leading speakers and content, as is usually the case at a BIAKELSEY conference. Local Commerce Canada is proud to be an official BIAKELSEY partner for this event and a panelist. We invite our Canadian audience to join us.

Local, Location based marketing, Local Commerce is a high growth industry with plenty of marketing, VC and startup investment being placed. The United States already has a large and cohesive community, whereas Canada’s Local Commerce community is just starting to organize. Most of the larger players in the USA will be present at this conference; companies like Facebook, Google, Yelp, Microsoft, Yellow Pages, Home Advisors, Reachlocal, Constant Contact, First Data among others. Many of these leading organizations have positions in Canada as well.

Our goal is to represent the Canadian sector with a strong voice and further promote the community of providers offering Local Commerce/Location Based Marketing services in Canada.

See you at the conference.
