Interactive Local Media 2009 (ILM:09), BIA/Kelsey’s flagship event, took place Dec. 9-11 at the beautiful and historic Hyatt Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. More than 535 senior executives from across the local online media community came together at ILM:09 to learn what's working, make connections and do deals.

Here’s a sampling of the feedback we received about this important industry event:

“The event itself was fantastic. I learned some things, caught up with contacts and friends, and met some new folks as well. All in all, an excellent conference.”
Brian Buchwald, Executive VP, Local Integrated Media and NBC Everywhere, NBC Universal

“BIA/Kelsey’s Interactive Local Media show was truly one of the best industry conferences I’ve attended. The networking was exceptional, with a number of high-level discussions of fascinating products and services emerging in the space. It was truly thrilling to be in an audience with so many thought leaders and prominent figures in Local. The conference was SO well-run—both the sessions AND the networking—and the discussions were far more stimulating than at a traditional SEO show.”
David Mihm, Local Search Expert, David Mihm, Inc.

“I really thought y'all nailed what's going on/about to happen better than ever before.”
Mike Orren, Publisher and Founder, PanLocal LLC /

“The Kelsey conference was the most targeted conference that I have been to in years. Complete with relevant attendees who provide potential partnerships combined with depth in local business marketing trends, we came away with several qualified business opportunities. We have made this a mainstay in our budget going forward. Great job!”
Andy Steuer, CEO,
