What comes to your mind when you think about the words – social, innovation and collaboration?
If you’re anything like us here at Omnipress, you probably have many different ideas buzzing around in your head, on your blog and Twitter stream.
We’ve been listening to industry thought leaders via webinars, reading blog posts, participating in Engage365 water cooler chats and conversations for quite awhile now. We think it is about time that we get together face-to-face to talk about how to bring more social media principles (think: two-way communication) into events.
So, we are sponsoring EventCamp Twin Cities in Minneapolis on September 8-9, 2010 to kick-off this discussion.
One thing that we really like about EventCamp is that it is an innovation laboratory. The Event Camp Twin Cities team has pulled together several new collaboration experiences, the latest in event technology and some of our own Engage365 members to spark discussions.
To be honest, this is an ambitious topic that we don’t expect to be resolved in one day. Yet, it’s a discussion we at Omnipress (and through our Engage365 community) think is important. We will be there joining the conversations. We hope that you will join too.
Here are some resources for you:
- EventCamp Twin Cities – blog – a good way to see how an event blog is ran
- About the EventCamp Twin Cities event
- Follow #ECTC10 on Twitter
This is going to be a great event. You can bet that after EventCamp, you will have tried at least ONE new thing that you can take back to your events to make the more innovative and social.
Hope to see you there!
P.S. Since I like deals – it’s worth noting that the price is reasonable at $85 and you can get cheap airfare on Southwest Airlines. Perhaps we’ll see you in Minneapolis!
