Urban Mapping Local Summit

Here’s the release that went out on the Urban Mapping Local Summit, which took place last week in Las Vegas. It turned out to be a really interesting gathering of people with different interests in the local segment.

Companies represented included:

  • AOL Mobile
  • Medio Systems
  • Skyhook Wireless
  • Zvents
  • Trulia
  • eBay/Kijiji
  • DoubleClick
  • Marchex
  • MapQuest
  • Placebase
  • Krillion
  • RHD/LocalLaunch

Peter Krasilovsky and I were there as industry analysts. Each person presented slides. But what was most valuable and interesting was the informal Q&A and discussion that happened among the participants. We were all in a suite sitting on couches and the discussion was candid (sometimes surprisingly so) and extended.

I found the intimacy and informality of the event to be highly valuable. Unfortunately we were not permitted to discuss specifics publicly without permission. So what happens in Vegas . . .
