We have just announced The Next Web Conference 2011 and shown you a preview of the some of the companies who will attend the conference. There is a lot more to announce, lets start with The Next Web Startup Rally.
Our event is full of interesting and inspiring talks, but since the first edition back in 2006 we have also given the hottest and most promising startups a platform to show their new service/app/web or mobile product to you.
Many startups have used The Next Web Conference to boost their PR, raise capital, build partnerships and gain buzz and new users, including Netvibes, Zyb, Plazes, Netlog, eBuddy, Huddle, CoTweet, Yunoo, Shutl, Fashiolista and last years winner Next2News (video). Many other startups have presented their services in the business arena to get feedback, get to know investors and industry journalists/bloggers.
The Next Web Startup Rally
The Startup Rally is one of things our audience loves. In super fast presentations you get an overview on where the new hot startups are working on and what the trends are. Many C level attendees love this and for investors the Startup Rally is a great source to source new investments. The overall level of the startups is increasing each year, so for the 6th edition we expect to see great teams, apps and services.
More about this unique event on The Next Web Conference 2011 on our conference website.
