Blogger Accreditations for LeWeb Paris [en]

Update: the deadline for requests was 13.10.2008. The form is now closed. Thank you.

I’m pleased to announce that I am in charge of managing blogger accreditations for the conference LeWeb’08 Paris which will take place on December 9-10th.

For the fifth year running, this huge conference organised by Géraldine and Loïc Le Meur will receive 1500 participants from the business, media, and internet worlds to listen to an amazing line-up of speakers — gathered this year around the theme love. Just look at the programme to get a taste of what’s in store (listen to the video!) — plus great food, a startup competition, incredible networking, giant screens…

I went to LeWeb in 2006 for the first time, and I have to say I was blown away by what they had managed to put together. If you’ve never been to Le Web, it’s really worth experiencing. And if you have… Well, I probably don’t need to say much more.

This year, maybe you will one of the lucky ones to be invited there, as LeWeb is selecting bloggers, podcasters, and generally “electronic media people” from all over the world to cover the conference.

This selection will be based on:

  • their geographical and linguistic location (ever thought of language as an online “place”?)
  • their readership and influence
  • their motivation and the value they offer the conference by their presence
  • when they made their request (yes, there is an element of first come, first served in the selection).

Selected bloggers will be asked to display a badge on their blog upto the conference date and blog about it at least once before mid-November. They will be listed in an official blogroll on the conference site and will be given a “blogger accreditation” to attend the conference and cover it.

Send an e-mail to [email protected] (I’ll receive it) with Due to the rather large number of people applying, please fill in this form, which will ask you for information like:

  • your name
  • your URL
  • the country you live in
  • the language you will be blogging about LeWeb in
  • your Twitter username if you have one
  • if you’ve attended previous LeWeb conferences, and when
  • why we should invite you 🙂 (we know you’re great and you certainly deserve it, but what does LeWeb get out of the deal?)

Bloggers who are also journalists should apply for a regular press pass at [email protected].

Waiting to hear from you, and looking forward to seeing you at LeWeb in a couple of months!

  1. toi, tu viens de te créer une bande de pote et de facto une bande d'ennemis… A mon avis tu vas pas rigoler tous les jours 🙂

    bon courage quand meme,

  2. I'd like an invite for blogging in the Greek audience.

    Μια πρόσκληση για Έλληνα blogger παρακαλώ!

  3. Une ou deux précisions, surtout pour les francophones:

    – nous cherchons des blogueurs établis, respectés, ayant une certaine influence
    – précisez ce que votre présence apportera comme valeur ajoutée à la conférence, et non le contraire! (je reçois beaucoup de demandes où les gens expliquent à quel point ils vont retirer de la valeur de la conférence, mais ça ne suffit pas: si on offre un passe, on veut quelque chose en retour!)

  4. Done. It should be great if we could do it again with @arnehulstein, you know with the Ford and have Pitch-talks at the back seat pre and during Le Web 🙂
