Description
FunnyBizz Conference Join us for a full day conference unlike any other. Instead of the same boring routine, you’ll be engrossed in interesting talks by top presenters, known for their engaging, entertaining, and enlightening presentations.

Closing the gap between funny and business to craft better business content and drive sales in 2014. Finally, a tech conference with a sense of humor.

“Today's generation has been socialized to receive info via humor. They want infotainment, not information. Clients don't watch '20/20' or 'Nightline' for news; they watch Colbert and Jon Stewart. They want data delivered with a punch line.”

Ever wonder how Silicon Valley's top startups use comedy, imporv and stroytelling principles to create great content, stand out from the noise and ultimately sell more?

There is a movement beginning. The lines of business, entertainment and comedy are becoming ever more intertwined. Viral media, social spread and engaging content is king. Attention spans are shorter than ever. Consumers want infotainment, not information. Standing out from the noise is a necessity. To make a more memorable impact, craft a more compelling and entertaining story, and tap into the creativity of their workforce and community, leading companies are using humor.

Transferrable bands: Can’t attend the entire conference? Buy one ticket, attend the morning, then trade wristbands with a colleague so they can attend the afternoon. That's awesome! Most conferences don't do that!? Thankfully, we are not most conferences.
