Are there any Jewish conferences Judaism.SE should consider sponsoring and sending a representative to?

Conferences bring together high concentrations of highly interested people, and would give us a chance to promote the site face-to-face. In addition, a representative we send to a conference may learn some interesting information that could be useful in answering advanced questions on [main]. Stack Exchange, Inc. has money available to do stuff like sponsor a conference, print up materials to bring, etc.

Any ideas?

How about reaching out to Federation to see if you can present @ the GA?

  • Last year I believe there was a panel on social media. – Seth J Jul 8 '11 at 2:01
  • Know anyone who was there? – Isaac Moses Jul 8 '11 at 13:46
  • I think I do. I'll ask around. Want me to put them in touch with you? – Seth J Jul 8 '11 at 14:08
  • Yes, please. And also tell them to try out J.SE! – Isaac Moses Jul 8 '11 at 14:17

Here are two Jewish journalism conferences that happened recently. Perhaps we could catch up with them next year.

The next Limmud Conference in the UK will be December 23 - 29, 2011.

http://www.youthcon.org/ - a conference for Jewish Youth Professionals, who would likely join and be active participants of the site.

http://www.fojnp.com/ - a conference for those who work in the Jewish non-profit field, again lots of people who would likely be actively involved in building the site.

Full Disclosure: Friends of mine are running both of these conferences.

  • Thanks! YouthCon looks particularly relevant. Both of these are coming up in 3-4 weeks. Do you know if there's any potential to add someone speaking about crowdsourced Jewish Q&A to, e.g., one of the Digital Media sessions at YouthCon at this late date? Could you please either email me at info@yodeya.com or join me in Mi Yodeya Chat to discuss these ideas further? – Isaac Moses Jul 28 '11 at 21:30

I just came across an ad for TribeFest, a Federation conference for North American Jews ages 22-45.

There's information about being part of the vendor exhibition in this PDF.

This year's conference is March 25 - 27, 2012, in Las Vegas.
