Early bird ticket sales are now open for our exciting EconCeleb conference being organized on July 23rd at Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, CA. The conference, as the name suggests, is about the "Economics of Celebrity Content Online". Celebrity is a booming marketplace and all of this just adds up to good business for an array of old media and new media entrepreneurs. Some of the issues we will discuss: What drives the economics of celebrity content, supply or demand? What are the challenges of monetizing it? Who is creating, producing, and distributing the content? Where are investors seeing opportunities in this new mass and who is capturing the most buzzworthy M&A opportunities to be the biggest and best in the space. More topics here. Go buy the ticket here.
