We’re headed to the Twin Cities!
General Manager, Eric Olson (@Eric_Ols) and Director of Social Media, Justin Ramers (@JustinRamers) will be speaking on event mobile marketing strategy and social media ROI at Event Camp Twin Cities. This two day event will be held in Minneapolis, MN, August 25 – 26.
What’s Event Camp Twin Cities (ECTC)?
ECTC was born from the Twitter community, #eventprofs, in 2010. It aims to teach and inspire event professionals on new ways of creating and planning events through the use of technology and new media.
One interesting characteristic about event camp is its hybrid nature. Attendees in different locations are connected to main conference attendees in Minneapolis, through remote “pods” (or satellite events). If you are interested in attending the event and cannot travel to Minneapolis, there is the opportunity to join a pod and participate ‘remotely‘ in the following cities: Philadelphia, Toronto, Vancouver, Silicon Valley and Amsterdam.
5 New Ideas for Event Camp Twin Cities
The 2011 Event Camp will introduce 5 new elements: integrated gaming, social learning at the campfire, full throttle content, new ideas in the event innovation sandbox and Podapalooza. These elements will continue to build upon last year’s elements of presentation style, business games, mass collaboration exercises, story slam, alternative seating and two-way engagement for hybrid meetings. Read more about each of the new ideas on the ECTC blog.
