The CEPIC New Media Conference has been announced today. Our fearless leader, Tyler Olson (leaf), is on the program, along with Yuri and Andres and plenty of other microstock representatives. The big difference with this conference is that it's in Europe!

Here's the details:

Location: Dublin, Ireland (Aviva Stadium - www.avivastadium.ie )
Date:  June 9, 9am - 6pm
Price:  190

So far there's five MSG members confirmed on the program: Tyler, Yuri, Andres, Jonathan Ross and myself.

A quick background on CEPIC - they're the European association of picture agencies. It's primarily macrostock agencies, though Dreamstime is a member and other microstock agencies have attended their events in the past. Bruce Livingstone spoke at the last one. Their website is www.cepic.org

Don't get confused by the Congress. Each year CEPIC runs a member "Congress" with around 1000 attendees from member agencies and visitors. This 'New Media Conference' runs adjacent to the 'Congress'.  The Conference is June 9 and the Congress is June 10 - 13.  They're also in the same venue.  The cost of the 'Congress' is much higher, starting at 490 if you booked early.

Just to be transparent about my involvement, I'm working with CEPIC to program the speaker roster and help promote the event, but I'm NOT on commission for ticket sales.  I'm more interested in seeing as many of our group there as possible, having really enjoyed similar gatherings in the past. I hope this time we can get a similar MSG crowd together at this one too.

What are all these people doing at this event?  There didn't seem to be a live link on the site.

I was wondering the same thing myself. Is there an agenda of any sort?

I found this on the site:

http://www.cepic.info/congress/2010/programme

but to be honest apart from the golf tournament on the first day I haven't seen much listed that is of benefit to photographers as contributors, it appears to me to be aimed at agencies, have I missed something because I don't normally need much of an excuse to get over to Dublin.

Edit: I also found this:

http://www.cepic.info/sites/cepic/assets/CEPIC_Participant_Fees_11.pdf

Which suggests the fee is 790euros per delegate, and that doesn't include the golf!

My apologies. I had more detail on my blog but didn't want to draw people away from MSG with a link.

Here's the program so far:

Keynote - Yuri Arcurs
New Media session - Marco Oonk et al
Microstock session - Andres Rodriguez, Tyler Olson, Jonathan Ross, Lee Torrens (moderator)
IPTC metadata - Michael Steidl
Stock Video - Tom Bennett, Kelly Thompson, Andy Goetze (moderator)
Stock Future - Taylor Davdison, Shannon Fagan, Rahul Pathak, Ellen Boughn (moderator)

The full session descriptions and additional speakers will go up on the CEPIC website in the coming weeks. I'll ensure updates are brought in to this thread.

Yes Richard, you missed something.  Read the second-last paragraph in the original posting.  The info you found is about the "Congress" not the "Conference", which is aimed only at agencies and much more expensive.  Take another look and let me know if the conference suffices as an excuse to get over to Dublin.

Doh - I'll blame you for not wanting to draw people away with a link  :D

Eventually found your part on the CEPIC site : http://www.cepic.info/congress/2010/programme/new_media_conference

Do you happen to know whether attendees to your day would benefit from the reduced hotel rates the 'congress' delegates get.

I plan to be there. Conference looks quite interesting; and Dublin has been in my "to see" list for a long time :)

Flight and hotel booked already. Waiting for CEPIC to open their conference reservation.

Good opportunity to finally meet Lee and Tyler in person, and many others :)

yes, look here - http://www.cepic.org/congress/2010/where_to_stay
However I found cheaper options myself, and took one of those.

You'd think with Yuri's reports of falling profits that he wouldn't be out trying to actively drum up even more competition...  Ah well.  I'd love to visit Dublin.  Someday, when I can visit pubs without the kids :).

I take full responsibility!  It's my understand that the hotel discounts are open to anyone who books through those links. However, myself and a few other people are staying at the Burlington Hotel which can be booked cheaper than the hotels on the CEPIC list, and doesn't charge by the hour for Internet access like some on the list!  I'm sharing a room and got US$105 per night including breakfast for the two of us.  If you take this recommendation and stay at the Burlington, you owe Ellen Boughn a pint of Guinness for the tip, as I do.  ;)

Maybe that's the point - his reports of falling profits will deter competition.

wow, your ahead of me.  I gotta check out hotels before all the good (read cheap) rooms are sold out.  And agreed, it is very nice to finally meet new people I have chatted with for so long and re-meet those I got to meet at the last gtg's/conferences

@Lee - thanks.. I updated the list.

Hi Lee and all ,

 Thanks for the plug Lee. I look forward to speaking with all involved in stock photography. Thanks to Lee for getting me involved in the lectures it should be very fun and informative. I will also be launching a new Macro RM/RF site just before and this conference is where deals are struck over distribution and the growth of your agency. So it's kind of a combo. Great info at the lectures for everyone and then a separate opportunity for agencies from all over the world to meet and talk about business in the coming year. I hope people can make it for lectures, beer and golf. Bring your cameras : )

Best,
Jonathan

Jonathan, thanks to *you* for speaking. Given the setting and audience of this event your experience brings a much needed perspective to the table, so your participation is well appreciated. I'm very much looking forward to finally meeting you and hearing about your new venture.

Oddly enough, here's a Candian discussion from "CAPIC".  What are the chances?

For an organisation that represents creatives the website could be better, the main part looks like they took a photo of a poster on a mobile phone and pasted it in, they could use a proof reader as well judging by the last paragraph. (Sean I've put your name forward  ;D)

Would have thought somebody from iStock would have been on the panel considering where it is, anyway it'll be interesting to see what their findings are.

Ok, things are officially official for me as well.  

I'm flying in on the 6th, so if anyone wants to get together before the conference I am game for some shooting or supper or whatever.

I decided to stay at the Ballsbridge Inn for 53 Euro / night - booked at hotels.com

The page there says they have free wireless but I also called and they said it costs... who knows???  I will complain if it isn't free I suppose.  Anyhow, the hotel was close to Aviva stadium (5 minute walk) and cheap so it filled my requirements.  Just as long as Lee doesn't have too many parties at the Burlington without me  ;D
