Event Details

Event Camp Europe?  Twitter hashtag = #ECEU

Live events are strongly being influenced by the impact of digital media enabling speakers, participants and community members to communicate in realtime before, during and after the live event. 

Event Camp Europe aims to deliver and experience that blends live and digital possibilities in a laboratory type environment to test the functionalities of the new digital relation to existing live events. 


Event Camp Europe seeks to create in-person learning experiences focused on using progressive & experimental methods to teach event professionals about innovative event techniques. It seeks to both showcase and be part of efforts to pioneer new ways to create meetings and events that offer more value to attendees.

Event Camp Europe (#ECEU) 2011 is an opportunity for event professionals to learn about unconferences and hybrid events through actual experience. Via remote international PODs, live online video stream and in person, participants will not only learn about different kinds of unconference and hybrid event techniques, they will also recieve practical guidance all while experiencing first hand what it’s like to be an attendee at such an event. ECEU is the result of an international collaboration of event professionals who are passionate about their industry and wish to contribute to its advancement.



Some of you are wondering what is a POD? A POD is a remote viewing location for Event Camp where several people are participating together. We are creating live video links between the PODS and the audience in the room. During certain sessions or activities, we will ask the PODS to work together as a group. Then, feed their input or conclusions into the face-to-face audience to add to the discussion.


Event Camp Europe is a blend between the barcamp and wordcamp conference format and an event innovation lab. 

For some of you, this will be an opportunity to share some of your success stories and failures with social media, virtual events and collaborative methods. While others will have an opportunity to learn about these new social technologies and innovative formats and try them in a risk free environment.

Here are some of the discussion topics that we will tackle:
> With Social Media and mobile technology - what will events look like in 2012?
> How can you make hybrid and virtual events social and interactive?
> How do business games work? Can they play a role in Face-to-Face events and learning?
> What are the latest event smart phone applications? Should we be using these in our events?

Because Event Camp was born from the #eventprofs Twitter community, we want to create a collaborative and engaging environment where you can feel safe to ask questions, take risks and make mistakes. Here are some of the interactive formats that we have planned:
> Presentations on Social Media, Unconference formats, Meeting Architecture and Hybrid Events
> Hands-on Innovation Lab

> Digital and realtime challenges incorporating outcomes of Event Camp Twin Cities (25 & 26 August 2011)
> Hybrid Wine tasting (for PODs and Down Hall live participation

> Livestreaming of the Event with a Curated & Translated Twitter Backchannel. (with instant take aways for your next event)



Thursday 9 September 2011 from 09:30 hours GMT Time in parallel with remote (live) Pod events across Europe including Stockholm (Sweden), Warsaw (Poland), Turnhout (Belgium) and Croydon (UK) and one POD onsite to experience the 2 perspectives for the onsite participants. 



Live at Down Hall Country House Hotel in Hatfield Heath, Hertfordshire (near London UK).  Down Hall Country House Hotel is one of England's most established country house hotels. Located in Hatfield Heath, near Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, Down Hall is 45 minutes from central London and also ideally located near London Stansted Airport in Essex.

PS: We are looking into creating a special sponsored EventCamp Europe Networking Coach from Downtwon London to Down Hall to extend the pre and post event net(working) !  

Event Camp Europe is co-located with ROI week which promises to be a week of engagement around event ROI, Meeting Architecture, Presentation Techniques and the application of Social Media and Hybrid Events. The Country House setting delivers a distinct European flavour to this event with a strong emphasis on biologic and organic home grown slowfood in an impressing Italianate mansion dating back to 1322 set in a 110 acre park of surrounding woodlands, and landscaped gardens. Picture hybrid connectivity and a English Afternoon Tea in the park or a cocktail with roaring log fire. 



We are building on the experience of mutliple organizers who have been involved with Event Camp New York, Event Camp Twin Cities, Event Camp East Coast, Event Camp Twin Cities Basel Pod. We welcome your contributions and ideas.
