Mesh is the Canadian interactive conference, and reminds me very much of SXSWi in that it’s really a cultural event, a place where Canada’s online community gets to gather and connect F2F. I have met a lot of amazing people there, and I look forward to doing the same again this year!
Canada’s premier Web conference, being held in Toronto on May 21st & 22nd, 2008, is a chance to connect with people who are as excited about the potential of the Web as you are — people who want to know more about how it is changing the way we live, work and interact with the world. And you won’t just connect with them in the hallways — at mesh, every panel and workshop is interactive.
Social Media Group is a big supporter of Mesh (most of the crew is going this year), I sat on a panel in 2007 (and also Twittered the event) and will be doing the same again this May. This year, however, we decided to step it up a notch. SMG is proud to announce that we are the official and exclusive sponsors of the Mesh party on May 21st. This year there will be no separate events for speakers and attendees – the whole thing is taking place under one roof, and it’s going to be a blast!
There’s also a new addition to the curriculum for 2008: MeshU, being held on May 20th. It’s a one-day workshop-based event broken out into three streams: design, development & management. Promising to be very hands on, you can find out more info or register here.
If you haven’t yet registered for Mesh, do so quickly – it typically sells out. Online registration is available here, and be sure to come by the party – we’d love to buy you a drink!
I am really looking forward to attending both the conference and the party. I really do love that SMG is sponsoring the party…says something about us, right? 😉
