The first ever Event Camp DownUnder and the first in the world for 2012 will take place in Sydney, Auckland and online on 26th and 27th February. Expecting more than 70 #eventprofs in the room in Sydney and in Auckland with a virtual audience of hundreds, the event organisers have kept the ticket price low at only $75 for this amazing hybrid event.
If you’ve not heard of them, Event Camp DownUnder is part of an international movement. Event Camps were established to connect event professionals with the latest and greatest trends in the event world.
The intention is to give those in the industry that might not usually get the chance to attend thought leadership events, a place at the table – and at the mike if they want – as Event Camp DownUnder is an ‘unconference’ – there’s space for the participants to set the agenda and explore feedback from the amazing presentations. All of which is being streamed live to an online audience around the world.
‘We want this event to be accessible to every event professional and get some amazing conversations happening that will fuel event and technology design in 2012,’ Josh says.
Presenters leading the discussions are impressive – Jo-Anne Kelleway (CEO Info Salons Group), Corbin Ball (TechTalk) and Mitchell Beer (Conference Publishers) feature amongst other keynotes that include 13 expert speakers and facilitators from around the world, leading debates and posing questions to the audience on topics like social media, large scale event production, hybrid events, mobile apps and creating communities.
The event in Sydney is being hosted by IML Ltd at their offices at 60 Carrington Street – and attendees will be spoiled by local caterers, swag providers and location dressers to make this an event not to be missed for 2012!
