Event description



#Be2campOxon - Celebrating Success

We are very excited to be able to invite you to join us for the fourth #Be2campOxon - an afternoon of great speakers, intriguing conversations and fantastic cake.

Our theme for 2016 is Celebrating Success - what are you most proud of in your working life, what lessons have you learnt and who would you like to thank? What aspects of our sector need to improve?

Here is why you should join us

If you are intrigued by how technology might help with your work in the built environment and keen to look at new ideas and innovations then this event is perfect for you. It isn't a "how to event" - you won't learn how to use Twitter but you may just find new ways of using it. Be2camp Oxon is a very informal event.  There will be a running order but there will be plenty of time for questions and discussions as well as networking.  


Our Venue

 Cornerstone Arts Centre was designed by Ellis Williams Architects, who also designed the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Arts.

What is Be2camp?

Be2camp is for people interested in how the latest web and mobile applications and web design techniques (Web 2.0 - blogs, Twitter, Wikis) can help build a better, more sustainable built environment - planning, design, construction, occupation and management of buildings, services and landscape.

In October 2008 the first Be2camp was held in London. Since then, independently and in partnership with others, we've held over 40 further events (sharing literally 100s of presentations) - in Birmingham, Colchester, Dundee, Leeds, Liverpool, London and Manchester - and in 2011 we held the first Be2Awards.


Ada Lovelace Day

October 11th is Ada Lovelace Day so we will have a PechaKucha session to close the event based around the day.  If you'd like to present remember to bring your talk on a USB stick.
