Presented by Federated Media Publishing, a next-generation media and publishing company, "Marketing in Real-Time" will bring together "industry-leading brand marketers, advertising agencies, platforms, media companies, service providers and data providers for two days of in-depth discussion around the promise, realities and challenges created by our always-on, always-updated social media environment, otherwise known as the 'real-time Web,'" notes an announcement.

"2009 was the year the Web went real-time," says John Battelle, CEO of Federated Media and host of the summit. "That's a profound shift for the entire media and marketing ecosystem. We want to unpack that and provide some actionable intelligence for everyone involved -- on the marketing side, the media side or otherwise."

The event's other speakers will include Arthur iphone NYTimes b.jpgSulzberger Jr., chairman of the New York Times Company; Mike Murphy, vice president of global sales for Facebook; and Arianna Huffington, co-founder & editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post.
