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!

Summary

Why Wait? Book Now!

Why Wait? Book Now!

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.

I know what you mean: I’m a conference fusspot too but at ThinkVis (where I’m usually one of the very few PR people in attendance), I go to talks on a variety of subjects that strictly speaking, have little to do with my specialist subject – and come away with a notepad filled to bursting and lots of new ideas buzzing around my head.

Hey Rishil,

Thanks for the mention. I’m as excited as you about Think Visibility I said at my talk this year, it’s so great to have a conference like this in your hometown. It is understandable why so many people come far and wide for Think Visibility. I’ve been to many conferences over the last couple of years and not many of them match up to Think visibility.

For me the greatest part of all is…..the networking. It’s lovely to catch up with all the familiar faces that I’ve come to know through Think Visibility. You can’t put a price on great contacts or the amazing after party!

Have to agree, having been to everyone and actually made a presentation as well.

It’s an absolutely cracking line up this year I will really have a problem who to see, and I know I will come away with some new ideas and thoughts..
and then there’s the networking/parties – such a friendly bunch, and that’s from someone who usually hides away in their hotel room instead of networking. Dom certainly sets the atmosphere here – it’s fun, relaxing and friendly.
