Eclipse Marketing Symposium

We are getting ready for the second Eclipse Marketing Symposium on Sept. 20 in Dallas TX. The goal of the symposium is to bring together the marketng and business development professonials of Eclipse Foundation member companies to discuss the best practices of marketing to the Eclipse market. We held the Symposium last year and got great feedback, so we are doing it again.

This year we have a great line-up of speakers and presentations.

  • Michael Goulde from Forrester Research will kick off the sessions by presenting his open source research.
  • Maher Massi from Genuitec will present market research and demographic information about the Eclipse community;
  • We will have a panel discussion on ‘Competing with Open Source Solutions’
  • Alan Zeichick from BZ Media will talk about ‘How to Get Good Press Coverage’
  • Peter Ryce from Adobe will talk about ‘Best Practices for Developer Webinars’
  • Finally a panel discussion on ‘Viral Marketing and Evangelism’

It should be an interesting afternoon. If you would like to attend, please take the time to register here. Just so you know, unfortunately you need to be an employee of an Eclipse member company to attend.

One Response to Eclipse Marketing Symposium

  1. I know this a an old post about an Eclipse conference however I found this post useful because after checking the Eclipse website I was able to learn much from the articles there. I particularly like the article titled “6 Steps To A Mighty Marketing Plan” which stressed the importance of writing down your goals. The results proved that overwhelmingly the people that did had much better results. The article continues to go over the 6 things that would add up to being a strong position in your market. The first point clearly is one of the most important as being a newbie internet marketer I know that you clearly have to define your business/market in order to effectively allocate resources in the right places. Thanks again for making me aware of this resourceūüôā
