I wanted to bring to your attention the Virtual Worlds Conference, taking place March 28-29, 2007 in NYC. VW 2007 is described as "the leading event for Fortune 500 companies seeking to understand and maximize marketing, entertainment and business strategies within virtual worlds. Virtual Worlds 2007shows you how to succeed as a marketer in this rapidly growing segment of marketing, media, entertainment and commerce. Separate buzz from success; hear from companies who’ve made the journey and learn from their experiments and activities; learn more about this technology trend and the consumers who inhabit virtual worlds. "

Also, while we are on the subject of booking early for forthcoming conferences you might also want to consider State of Play IV, "Building the Global Metaverse". This conference has been cancelled twice that I know of, possibly due to an absence of adequate financial backers. It is now being rescheduled - again - but no firm date is set as yet, other than vague references to "Spring semester, 2007". If I find out more I will post.
