Digital Dialogue to Engage Energy Summit Attendees

2011 World Future Energy Summit to feature a cutting edge global exchange of ideas during January 19th “Masdar Digital Dialogue” in Abu Dhabi

It’s not that often that I get a chance to co-host a world party. But that is exactly what is happening on January 19, 2011 when LiveOAK Media will be honored to join forces with clean energy firm Masdar to host the Masdar Digital Dialogue, an opportunity to “Debate the issues and engage the world,” at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi on January 19th from 5:30-8pm (GMT +4 hours).

Held alongside the “Exhibitor Party” at the stunning Saadiyat Story Gallery at Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi on January 19, the third night of the Summit, this compelling live event will bring WFES delegates, journalists and social media enthusiasts together in one place to discuss and debate the hot stories and key themes emerging from this year’s summit – with a unique opportunity to engage with a truly global audience.

The global event will provide the opportunity for participants to both answer and ask important questions of Masdar executives, summit delegates, conference participants and thought leaders from around the world, whether they are attending in Abu Dhabi, tweeting from Tokyo, streaming in Sydney or lurking in London.

So I invite you to join the discussion on January 19 from 5:30-8pm (GMT +4 hours)/1:30-4pm GMT/8:30-11am ET as Masdar executives and thought leaders steer global participants through an engaging discussion about clean energy, sustainable technologies, future cities and more. There will also be an opportunity for participants to become moderators themselves by submitting questions to be asked of special guests, moderators and the larger global audience.

There will be multiple ways to join the Masdar Digital Dialogue on January 19th. For the richest experience, keep up with the entire global discussion by following the real-time dialogue at Masdar’s website or right here at Earth & Industry. Alternatively, you can follow the #TweetMasdar hashtag on Twitter or your favorite Twitter client and keep a special eye out for the questions being asked by the “Masdar Moderator” coming from the Masdar twitter feed.

Of course we would love if everyone could engage the entire two-hour discussion (Moderated discussion and questions will commence at 6:00pm local time, GMT+4/2:00pm GMT/9am ET/6am PT), but we also understand that people have work, school and sleep to attend to so we will make it as easy as possible for anyone to pick up with the discussion at any point, unencumbered by the nagging feeling that they missed the beginning and therefore have no idea what’s going on.

This unique global Digital Dialogue is being held during the World Future Energy Summit, which has quickly emerged as one of the most important events of its kind for political leaders, investors, scientists, policy makers and researchers engaged in energy and environment.

Follow @Masdar on Twitter to keep up with event updates or notices in advance of the January 19 Digital Dialogue and to follow those questions as they happen. If you do decide to join the discussion, which we hope you do, don’t forget to use the #TweetMasdar when tweeting your answers, thoughts and questions during the discussion, otherwise we will have no way to track your valuable contributions and share them with the rest of the world.
