I spent much of June engaging with two events, #iwmw12 and #lawtechcamplondon. Meanwhile, posts about eventamp seem to be popping up all over the place, maybe a sign that it’s starting to enter the mainstream?
If you are new to the concept here are 10 things to inspire you to get more from your event, starting with five useful links:
- Mark Braggins’ reflections on events, a useful set of checklists, and summary of issues with remote attendance, not just the technical
- how to revitalise the traditional event format - A Dragon’s Best Friend reviews two recent events
- 16 tips for harnessing social media at in-person events - but relevant to non-person events too…particularly like the stress on the event lifecycle
- Five ways to encourage participants to cover your event - organisers don’t have to do it all; make the most out of all that free effort
Here’s five things I liked:
- #likeideas‘ no nonsense website, full details on the left, quick links on the right; offer more than one way of getting to the content
- #heasocsci capturing and building on the knowledge shared in a series of blog posts
- #nlsf12 expertly curated by law undergraduate Katie Louise – see her National Law Students Forum story
- a bit hard core this one – contrasting Real time social conversations at LeWeb London with IWMW hacks
- latest news from the SMiLE project, looking at an archive of tweets from a conference to start working out what it’s all for
Finally, a quote from Richard Parnham’s #lawtechcamplondon report (lightly edited for impact : D):
At the Fox Williams meeting, I was given a glossy, paper-based summary of the report’s findings, and a collection of marketing literature. At the LawTech event, I took away a twitter feed, a blog of speakers delivered in real time, a memorable YouTube video – and a headful of new ideas.
