One of the nation’s longest-running new media conferences comes around again on May 23 and 24 in Miami. It’s the Interactive Media Conference and Trade Show, presented by E&P and sister publication Mediaweek, to be held at the Radisson Miami.
As usual, executives, editors, and publishers from leading media Web sites will attend, and the 12th annual EPpy awards will be announced and presented at a closing luncheon.

Panels will cover a wide range of topics, including user-generated content, advances in video, old and new-media integration, the latest on blogging, and “The First YouTube Election.”
