Join Me for the Platform Conference, February 11-13, 2013

I’m pleased to announce registration is now open for the first-ever Platform Conference, which will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, February 11–13, 2013. This is a conference you don’t want to miss!

This event has been a dream of mine since before I wrote my book, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. In fact, I had the idea for the conference before I even thought about writing the book.

I wanted to create a world-class event where people could learn from experts in the industry, network with like-minded professionals, and leave with the tools they need to launch their platform or take it to the next level.

Why do you need a platform? Because the market is more crowded and noisy than ever. Worse, people are more distracted than ever. To succeed, you need a platform.

The Platform Conference is for anyone who wants to get their message, product, service, brand, or cause noticed. That includes authors, bloggers, recording artists, business owners, entrepreneurs, sales people, mortgage brokers, pastors, or corporate brand managers.

We have an amazing roster of speakers:

  • Ken Davis—motivational speaker, bestselling author, and my business partner in Dynamic Communicators International
  • Pat Flynn—entrepreneur, blogger, podcaster, and founder of Smart Passive Income
  • Jeff Goins—blogger, speaker, writing coach, and author of Wrecked
  • John Saddington—entrepreneur, blogger, and founder of TentBlogger and Standard Theme
  • Carrie Wilkerson—author, speaker, business coach, and founder of The Barefoot Executive
  • Cliff Ravenscraft—founder of the GSPN.TV, business coach, and the world’s leading authority on podcasting
  • Stu McLaren—entrepreneur and co-founder of WishList Member, the leading membership site software in the world
  • Michele Cushatt—popular speaker, speaking coach, author, and emcee for all our DCI events
  • Andrew Buckman—WordPress expert, software developer, and my partner in the GetNoticed! theme for WordPress

I will also be speaking twice and hanging out with the attendees the whole time.

We are structuring the conference around the framework I provide in my book:

  1. Start with wow
  2. Prepare to launch
  3. Build your home base
  4. Expand your reach
  5. Engage your tribe

We will hold the conference in Nashville’s famous Sound Kitchen music studio, regarded by many to be the best recording studio in Nashville.

The good news is that this unique venue will provide an incredible atmosphere of professionalism and intimacy. The bad news is we only have 150 seats available. We have already sold more than half of them. The rest will go quickly.

If you are interested in attending, I urge to to register today, while you still can. The early bird pricing expires on December 31st. My team and I are doing everything we can to make this an extraordinary, super-practical experience.

I look forward to seeing you there!

    • Michael Hyatt

      Thanks for registering. I’m pretty excited about the lineup myself.

    • John Tiller

      Bo, I like your blog!  

      Real Estate is my former business and I’ve been coaching some folks about building their platforms in real estate.  I sent them your blog as a great example.  I look forward to meeting you at the Platform Conference!

      • Bo Barron, CCIM

        John – thanks so much for you kind words on my blog and for pushing it out.  I look forward to meeting you as well.  My best!

      Thanks, Ernie. I appreciate that.

  • Tony Chung

    Hey… is @jmlalonde:disqus going? If I’m coming from Vancouver I wanna sit with @mhyatt:disqus. ;-)

    • Joy Groblebe

      No jmlalonde yet…tell him to get registered!  ;)

  • Michele Cushatt

     The Sound Kitchen is amazing … a one-of-a-kind venue.

  • WillandBrandy Schneider

    I just purchased the book on Kindle.  Excited to see what Platform is about.  Thanks!

  • Linda

    I’m thrilled to find out about Platform conference. Thanks for being such an outstanding Christian leader. I’ve attended many secular conferences over the last few years but since building my platform is not my strength, I’ve walked away feeling very overwhelmed. How will this be different? 

    • Michael Hyatt

      Out goal is to “put the cookies on the bottom shelf,” where they are accessible by anyone. It will be at about the same technical level as my book. Thanks.

  • Judi

    I love the idea of this … but a little out of my “start up” budget right now.  BUT, I’ll start saving for next year.  

  • Judi

    Love the idea of this …. so wishing I could go but it’s not in my “start up” budget right now.  However, I’ve already started saving for next year!

  • Judi

    oops, sorry for the double post

  • Tracy Papa

    I’m registered and am so excited about the conference! I would love it if there were a break-out session or two on WordPress nuts and bolts. Or even how to find a good WordPress expert. My website is operational, but needs polishing!

    • Michael Hyatt

      We won’t have a breakout. But Andrew Buckman will be addressing some of your concerns, I’m sure.

    • Andrew Buckman

      I like the “find a good WordPress expert” idea, thanks!  I think I’ll work that in (and not just “call me” – promise!).  If there’s anything else specific, I’m sure I’ll be available during breaks and whatnot.

  • Rebeccahendersonjc

    Hi!  I just started reading your book last night – and could barely put it down before I finished it.  I’d love to come to the Platform Conference in February; however, I’m unable to.  When and where will the next one be?  Thank you!

    • Joy Groblebe

      We don’t have a 2nd Platform Conference scheduled yet…no definite plans are in place.

  • Linda

     In regards to speaking will there be ideas on how to get speaking engagements be addressed?

    • Michael Hyatt

      No, not specifically. We cover that at the Launch Conference. That site will be up next week.

  • Deni Corbett

    Best Christmas present ever?  Registration for the Platform Conference.   Can’t wait.  A gift from my son (who is coming as well and wanted to share the experience with me – how wonderful is that?) and my husband who believes in me and desires me to become all God intended.  Doesn’t get better than that:  a great son, a husband-encourager AND a life-changing conference conference (no pressure..).   I’m blessed!

    • Michael Hyatt

      That is awesome! I look forward to meeting you, Deni.
