Sustainable Brands 2009 Un-Conference Opportunities

As most readers know, Sustainable Brands 2009 is just around the corner and if you haven’t registered yet, now is the time to do so with a generous 20% discount by using the code “trprsp09” right here.
If you’re not able to make it to the entire conference, an excellent one day alternative on Monday, June 1st. Admission to the unconference, which also includes access to the ongoing trade expo for all three days, is only $99. However, Sustainable Life Media has generously given us a handful of free unconference passes for people who can commit to leading an interesting conversation during the day.
An unconference is a set of casual (powerpoint-free) conversations which are moderated by anyone with a good idea. That’s where you come in.
Here’s how it works. Sign on to our unconference wiki here. (the sign-up instructions are in the right-hand sidebar). Have a look at the proposals which people have submitted. Then, simply edit the wiki page to add your proposal. Be careful not to over-write someone else’s proposal.
Once you’re done, send us a message via Twitter with #3p #sb09 in it mentioning your unconference topic. We’ll follow up with you and get a free unconference pass to you while they last. If you’re feeling shy, then you can still qualify for a pass, just let us know via Twitter that you’re interested and we’ll put you in the running.
