Halifax-Dartmouth FerryIt’s true! Here in Halifax we know how to treat visitors right. That’s why we’re doing all we can to make your visit for Podcamp Halifax as comfy-cozy as an East Coast January can be.

HALIFAX, NS – When online video entrepreneur Craig Moore volunteered to help organize something called a ‘Podcamp’ in Halifax, he never could have anticipated the excitement that would be sparked.

Thanks Kirsty Pargeter!

Social media is amazing.   We haven’t even touched traditional promotion and two months ahead of the game we have 40 people registered and thirteen presentations offered.   Many of those who have offered presentations haven’t registered yet.   Go figure.  🙂  We have people confirmed to be coming from as far as Toronto, St. John’s and Moncton.
