Will you be attending Accounting Today's second annual Growth & Profitability Summit, October 25-27, in Las Vegas?

Have you been following my updates on Twitter, @ATomorrow? In addition to offering information about this month's event, I've asked for your participation. What questions do you want me to ask the marketing experts I'm moderating in a panel on lead-generation campaigns? Have any other must-asks for all our other panelists and speakers? Want me to rustle some card-counting tricks out of Bringing Down the House subject and keynote speaker Jeffrey Ma?

I can't promise that I won't bogart that last bit of information, but regardless, all of your feedback will be heard when you tweet with our event hashtag #GroPro11, both leading up to and during the conference. Your tweeted insights will also be visible onscreen throughout the event.

I've found the simple hashtag to be a valuable resource at conferences and events. I have followed new speakers and attendees on Twitter, been alerted to supplementary information about particularly interesting sessions, and had many slightly awkward, "I think I know you from your thumbnail headshot?" introductions that have ended in good conversation and opportunities for new Accounting Today and Accounting Tomorrow content.

My colleagues have found similar success. Our technology editor, Seth Fineberg, has been tweeting from tech conferences as @SethTechEditor. And of course, event updates and breaking news can always be found @AccountingToday.

We will all continue the live tweeting and retweeting during our conference, and I hope to see some new faces joining in under #GroPro11. Please, introduce yourself during one of our receptions or networking breaks. We can squint at each other with cautious recognition over our smart phones.

And then take Ma's tips to the tables.
