What Is EventCamp?
EventCamp Twin Cities 2010 is modeled after the first EventCamp NYC held in February 2010 that was birthed from the Twitter community #eventprofs. EventCamp 2010 NYC was the world’s first industry gathering of its kind, a “BarCamp-style” conference for meeting and event professionals. EventCamp’s ongoing mission is to bring together like-minded professionals, to share best practices, and learn new strategies, for leveraging social media and technology to create enhanced event experiences.

What excites you most about EventCamp Twin Cities? Why do you think unconferences like this have become so popular?
Sam Smith says
Thanks for your post, Jeff. This is very generous and an unexpected surprise.
I hope that you will be able to join Andy and the crew in the Freeman Dallas POD. We are looking forward to integrating the Dallas group into the conversation during the day. Having a two way conversation link should be exciting for all of us.
Kevin Richardson says
Thanks for the post and the shout out. We look forward to seeing you here at Freeman on Thursday. We have a great day planned and most of all, the gathering of some terrific people.
I’m most looking forward to connecting with others who are looking for different ways to share learning. Hopefully along the way I’ll be able to share a nugget of inspiration in addition to the nuggets I’ll receive.
Dave Lutz says
I participated virtually in certain portions of the NYC Event Camp. Because of that experience, I’ll definitely be tapping in for certain sessions for this one. The three things I love most about participating in Event Camps –
1) There are usually people in the live and virtual audience I know and trust (great to see them on video or the twitter stream)
2) Event Camp pushes the envelope with experiential content. You learn what works/doesn’t work.
3) Dirt cheap live and free remotely. They’re just trying to cover costs baby. It’s about the attendees not about the organizer.
Hope to see you there!
