How Have You Shaped Podcamp Halifax So Far?

Thanks Kirsty Pargeter!

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.  


Giles Crouch has also offered what is likely to be a landmark presentation on the state of social media in the Atlantic Region.   Knowing a little bit about the data here, the tone of his presentation is “unrealized opportunity.”  For instance, have you seen the Google Trends results for “Facebook” in the Canada region?  


While I can’t tell you everyone who is coming, I can say they come from all walks of life.   We have business focussed people, community-focussed people and people who are a blend of both.     Some members of the media have already signed up, and we haven’t sent out a press release announcement yet.   You probably want to register sooner than later, though.   Once we put out our promotions, you could be too late! 

And if you don’t think you can make it, rest assured that we will be live-streaming the key presentations via U-Stream and distributing video on the internet.  

In the next few days, I will be providing some video footage of the venue — the Alderney Gate Library — showing you what the environment is going to look like when you arrive.    A logo is just about ready to be launched and you should not be surprised to see some traditional media getting interested in the next little while.
