If you manage a small business and happen to be in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area on May 13, come check out the Local University event, at the Westin Edina Galleria. I’ll be there to give tips and tricks for using Google Places most effectively, and will be joined by my counterpart from Bing’s Local Listing Center, as well as respected leaders of the local search field (you can see the full list of“faculty” here.)

There will be two identical half-day sessions (8am - noon and 1pm - 5pm) on May 13th, 2010. The regular price is $129 but if you use coupon code LatLong at checkout, you’ll save $40. You can get more details and register at this link.

This event is part of a nationwide series of events which are organized by GetListed.org, as a primer for business owners who wish to use the internet effectively to promote their business. Keep an eye out for the university to come to an area near you.
