July 26-27, Marriot Marquis Times Square (1535 Broadway, New York, NY 10036)

LeadsCon is an Internet marketing conference that focuses specifically on lead generation. The convention hosts over 450 companies and seeks to combine experienced Internet marketers with novices looking to increase their visibility or improve performance through online advertising. Companies sponsoring a booth or table top in the exhibition hall will be able to take advantage of networking opportunities that can help them make connections with key buyers, decision makers, and industry professionals.

Some of the conference’s highlights will include a presentation titled “1:1 with the FTC,” featuring Leonard Gordon, Director of the Northeast Regional Office of the Federal Trade Commission; keynote speakers David McClue, Venture Capitalist & Angel Investor, Tom Evans, President & CEO of BankRate, Inc, and Brett Markinson, Co-Founder & Chairman of HauteLook, Inc; and networking opportunities at the Kick Off Soiree and Exhibit Hall Reception.

LeadsCon began in Las Vegas, and now hosts annual events LeadsCon Las Vegas and LeadsCon East, held in New York City, which is now in its second year. In the long run, LeadsCon organizers hope that the conference will help improve the online customer acquisition and lead generation industry’s standing in the advertising world.

“For a lead gen guy its a must attend event. Why? Because it is custom made for you. The content and the contacts you will be introduced to are worth the time and money, ten fold.”

“LeadsCon has become the must-attend event for anyone who is a serious lead buyer or seller. I was particularly pleased that there were more lead buyers there than I noticed at previous shows as well as a lot more venture capital, private equity and investment banking folks.”
