Get ready for a hell of a party on dec 8th. We're thrilled to announce that D.J. Bob Sinclar will mix for LeWeb participants at the WSJ Europe LeWeb Party, drinks will be sponsored by Buddy Media.

France is the symbol of so many traditions, LeWeb participants will enjoy drinks and entertainment offered by the Mairie de Paris and Microsoft in the incredible Hotel de Ville that they already visited and loved last year.

Beyond traditions, France is also a key source of Global D.J.s known around the world and Bob Sinclar is a symbol of that generation. Bob Sinclar is difficult to catch, he's playing in a different country almost every day and we're happy that he accepted immediately to partner with LeWeb and play for us. I am personally thrilled.

Tell Us Which Bloggers or Podcasters to Invite

by Stephanie Booth on 14.07.2010

in Conferences


Le système d'accréditations blogueurs pour la conférence LeWeb va changer un peu cette année. Dans un premier temps, nous désirons votre aide pour identifier les blogueurs influents à l'extérieur des communautés anglophones et francophones.

En septembre, il sera ensuite possible à chaque blogueur de demander une accréditation, mais nos critères seront plus stricts que ces deux dernières années. Il n'y aura pas non plus de grosse date-butoir, mais les demandes seront traitées au cas par cas.


Pay attention: this stage is not about pitching yourself, it will come later (September) — this is the time to tell us who else we should not miss.

As you probably know, I’m managing blogger accreditations for LeWeb in Paris for the third time. We’ve decided to change the system slightly this year to ensure a more balanced representation of countries and linguistic groups. We’ve also decided to do away with the big deadline to request an accreditation, and will be evaluating applications on a case-by-case basis.

Basically, here’s what we’re going to do:

First, reach out to motivated and influential bloggers and podcasters in all countries and linguistic communities. We need your help for that — to identify them, and maybe also to contact them. This is what this post is about.

Second, in September, we will allow individual bloggers/podcasters to apply for an accreditation.

We have thought quite a bit about what we expect from official bloggers, as a conference, and what kind of population we want to reach and invite. Our criteria this year will be stricter. To make it clear: if you work for an industry agency or big company, your company should be paying for your ticket — unless you are primarily known as a high-profile blogger, independently of your work. But more on that in good time (September).

So, back to our plan for July: the problem with the system that we used over the last two years is that it was perfectly possible for us to end up with no blogger from country XYZ covering the conference — or no coverage in certain languages. We want to make sure that LeWeb’10 echoes beyond political and linguistic barriers.

We have a pretty good idea who the main players are in anglophone and francophone circles. However, you probably know your country or linguistic group’s bloggers or podcasters better than we do.

Here’s who we’re looking for. Official bloggers and podcasters should:

  • have a passion for content and reporting
  • commit to attending and covering the conference (it’s in English!)
  • have significant reach and influence inside their community.

Although the accreditation allows to attend the conference for free, we cannot cover expenses.

Got a few people in mind? Great! Please use this form to recommend three bloggers/podcasters from your linguistic group or country.

Thanks a lot for your help! Please tell your friends speaking other languages or from other countries to send in their recommendations too.
