Are you planning to Attend the PRE CES AgeTek workshop?

I wanted to invite you to the Pre-CES Silvers Workshop that is being put on by the Smart Silvers people on January 5, 2011 from 1:00 to 4:00. If you are attending CES in Las Vegas, it would be a shame to miss this workshop that is shaping up with a highly interesting agenda.

I know your time is precious, that is why the format for the workshop is only four hours the day before CES starts. The AgeTek board of directors gave guidance to Smart Silvers to steer the agenda towards where we thought there would be the most interest from our members. Here’s how the four hours shape up:

EmCee: Susan Ayers Walker
1:00 – 2:00 Branding Your Products to the Boomer/Senior Consumer – Create the Plan
(speakers so far: Lori Bitter of Continuum Crew, Mary Furlong of MFA Associates)
2:00 – 3:00 Channel Roulette: View from inside the Retail, Catalog or VAR Channels
(speakers so far: Rick Rommel, VP at Best Buy, Michele Ahlman of Clearsounds, Bud Myers of Senior Circuits)
3:00 – 4:00 You know Social Media is Hot… But How do you Make it Pay off?
(speakers so far: Jill Gilbert of Digital Health, Laura Mitchell of Grandcare)
4:00 – 5:00 Creating Partnerships and Strategic Alliances
(speakers so far: Madeline Pantalone of Greatcall, Gary Arlen of Arlen Communications, Liddy Manson of BeClose, John Mills of eCare Diary)

Best of all, AgeTek members get a 50% discount down to $99.00. The money goes to the running of the event through the Silvers Summit organization, none of it goes to AgeTek. The Alliance is a sponsor of this event, though, and we have contributed a small amount to support it. We also are piggyback a networking event and our annual AgeTek meeting in the same venue afterwards from 5:30 to 8:30 P.M. and you won’t want to miss that.

Lastly, could you please R.S.V.P. to and let us know if you intend to register for the pre-CES Workshop? It’s important for planning to know how many attendees to plan for.
