SMWBe2camp 2010

The SMWBe2camp half-day 'unseminar' took place on Monday 1 February 2010, in the event facility at Hodge Jones & Allen (180 North Gower Street, London NW1 2NB). This event was sponsored by Reorb, the professional networking website dedicated to commercial real estate, with support from the Associates Group.

Social Media Week was inau­gu­rated in Feb­ru­ary 2009 in New York, and in 2010 is extending to include San Fran­cisco, Lon­don, Berlin, Toronto and São Paulo, Brazil. The goal is to: “explore the pro­found impact that social media has on cul­ture, busi­ness com­mu­ni­ca­tions and soci­ety at large … and to cre­ate a global plat­form for con­ver­sa­tion, con­nec­tiv­ity and learn­ing”. It therefore seemed logical to hold a Be2camp event as part of SMW London.

  • By the time, the event started, 58 people were still registered to attend - meaning the event was successfully over-subscribed (only 50 places were available)
  • The afternoon featured four main speakers and seven Pecha Kucha presentations
  • As this venue didn't - yet - have wifi, we asked attendees to bring their mobile phones, 3G dongles, Mifi, etc, and some updates were Tweeted out, etc (hashtags #smwldn and/or #smwbe2camp)
  • Read impressions of the event from Lee Smallwood (and here).
