Gary Vaynerchuk

Gary Vaynerchuk keynotes the 2011 Internet Summit in Raleigh next week, which is nearly sold-out.

Fewer than 50 seats remain for next week’s Internet Summit, which is bringing hundreds of digital media and marketing thought-leaders to the Raleigh, NC Convention Center Nov. 15-16.

The event, which attracts a capacity crowd, offers take-away insight into social media marketing, search engine optimization, ecommerce trends, email marketing, we and mobile analytics, big data, cloud computing, startup fund-raising and much more.

You’ll have access to visionary thought leaders who will share their insight and experience with you.  Hear from the founders of companies like Twitpic, TheLadders & HowStuffWorks!  Not enough?  How about a Keynote from Top rated SXSW keynote and ‘Social Media King’ Gary Vaynerchuk?

That’s just a sampling of the more than 120 speakers and presenters that will be on hand.

We interviewed just a handful of the many presenters. For a preview of what thought-leaders will be presenting at the event see:
