DO I need to convince you to get to Think Visibility Sept 2010?
I have this thing about conferences lately – I don’t like them. Not to rag on any recent ones, but I kept feeling that isn’t much to learn from them if the content continues to remain pretty much basic. Although, I must admit, I hear the sessions are indeed getting better – but I still can’t help think that our American counterparts actually get meatier content at their conferences – and at nearly £1000 plus a conference, I can’t justify going to them. And let me be honest, I enjoy attending and heckling – as those who have had the misfortune to meet me at some can attest. I refuse to take the podium as a speaker, and prefer to be a back sit driver – and have pissed off a few people in the past…
However I attended my first ever think visibility March 2010 and it changed my opinion of conferences. The event is a meet of such diverse people that it absolutely blew my mind. Excellent speakers – most with entrepreneurial spirits – who spurred my move into various directions this year. I would be lying if I said that the conversations I had at this event didn’t change how I felt about what I want to do.
A Mix of Individuals I Dont See At “Industry Conferences”
From Affiliates to Domainers, and from SEO’s to Conversion experts – a well rounded group of speakers – and even better rounded attendees. The attendees themselves were an awesome group of people, many whom I recognised from my online interactions – safe to say, there were few n00bs at this conference. I went home with stacks of notes, plans and ideas. And some excellent contacts.
Oh by the way, it is in a CASINO. Yep – a freaking casino. And the nights ought? Well lets say I am under several NDAs from the last one…
So without waxing lyrical – see the links below – don’t just take my word for it!
Cost of the Conference: £119 (WTF!!!!! I think Dom needs to rethink that price it is TOO low)
Cost of the Hotel: (City Inn Leeds – bloody Ace. Had iMacs in the rooms with free broadband!) £50 a night.
Contacts Made? Freaking Priceless. Go Book. Now. Seriously.
