I have frequenetly discussed, in my blog articles, a Twitter Hashtag group called #Eventprofs. Without a doubt this group has been the center of my social media attention over the past year.
Several members of this community, including myself, are collaborating on a project to produce an “Event Camp” for Event Professionals. This cutting-edge program, scheduled for February 6, at the Roger Smith Hotel, in NYC, will bring together business colleagues to share best practices, and learn new strategies of leveraging social media and technology, to create successful meetings and events. The official Twitter “Hashtag” assigned to the event is #EC10.
One of our co-hosts, Jessica Levin, wrote a great article explaining the Event Camp, and the philosophy behind it, in greater detail. Several things that really stand out to me about this program are:
- It’s innovative and flexible content design structure.
- Focus on a Peer-to-Peer learning environment.
- Relatively low cost for Registration, as compared to other industry events ($75.00 buys the whole enchilada, which includes two meals)
- An opportunity to meet face2face and rub shoulders with some of the more forward-thinking folks in the Events business today.
For more information regarding the details of Event Camp 2010, and to register please visit our online community site at http://eventcamp.conferencespot.org/. We also have community pages, for this event, on Facebook and LinkedIn. All levels of social media, technology, and event enthusiasts are invited and welcome to participate!
Whether you are part of the #eventprofs Twitter group, or a member of the Events industy business community, with an interest in technology, innovation, and making the industry better, this is an event you should plan to attend. We Hope to see you there!
