Making this chat even more exciting, the panel will collectively host the chat right on the Coverigns show floor while Mark Johnson moderates the group. If you'll be at the show, make sure you're there. We'll be chatting live from Coverings Central, Booth 3728. If you're not at Coverings, don't worry - you'll be able to follow along by using the hashtag #KBTribeChat on twitter. Stacy Garcia, the mastermind behind KBTribeChat, has all the information you need to know about how to participate in the chat. If you've never done a chat it's OK to be a lurker, but don't be afraid to get involved and participate. Todd Vendituoli, has a great post explaining Twitter Chats on his blog, SocialMedia4Builders.

Here's a list and brief bio of the other panelists and moderator that will be participating:
