Someone passed along this info via the site contact form and I thought it would useful to mention here for anyone who might be interested. I have no personal idea about how this is being organized or the expected quality.
Virtual Worlds Conference 2007 is the leading event for Fortune 500 businesses seeking to understand and maximize marketing and business strategies within virtual worlds. Leading companies from Toyota to Starwood to Leo Burnett to Adidas are setting up presences in virtual worlds. MTV has set up its own virtual world with Virtual Laguna Beach. CBS will bring its Star Trek franchise into Second Life.
Second Life is one of the sponsors. It is in New York at the end of March.
