The panels look even more interesting than those at least year’s conference. They include case studies of the Scott Brown, Bob McDonnell and the “Text Haiti” campaigns, the potential effect of mobile devices on the upcoming cycle, how to use new media to engage youth and minorities, and in-depth look at new tools in the industry. And of course there will be happy hours, two of them to be exact.
