On April 23rd to the 25th at Edmonton’s Fantasyland Hotel, the largest conference in Canada (and to my knowledge the first of its kind for Alberta) focused on analytics, big data and cloud computing will be held.
The organization behind this innovative conference is the Alberta Council of Technologies (ABC Tech). Conference Chair Perry Kinkaide has been working tirelessly along with the rest of the organizing committee to bring on key sponsors, speakers, panelists and of course attendees.
We’re proud to announce that fusedlogicTV has been hired to provide a live video stream of the keynote speeches, as well as, one on one interviews with the speakers, sponsors and attendees at our on-location set.
We’re expanding the reach of this conference not only by providing the live video stream from our website, and that of the conference website www.bestofanalytics.com but we’re also going to “syndicate” our stream for free to anyone in this industry who’d like to drive additional traffic to their website. This is a tremendous opportunity for sponsors of the event, organizations within any of the three main topic areas mentioned above, bloggers and government agencies regardless of their physical location.
Once we release the “embed code” website owners can create a page on their site that carries the video player and promote the content to their online networks. Everybody wins.
Something new we’ve suggested to ABC Tech was a “bloggers lounge”. Why not provide a special experience for local Edmonton and Alberta bloggers who are interested in networking, learning more about this area of technology, and would like to condense a ton of content generation into 3 days. This unique space will house our on-location set, and enough room for approximately 40 bloggers/media. We’ve also arranged for each keynote speaker to visit the bloggers lounge after their speech for an on-camera interview and blogger Q/A. This gives the bloggers a great opportunity to get a story that others will not.
There is a small fee of $50.00 for the bloggers lounge to cover refreshments for the 3 days. Power, internet, tables, chairs, food, drink and access to watch all the keynotes will be provided. You’ll also be able to network with attendees in the lobby, and if you’d like you can pay an extra $25.00 for the Recruiters Reception on Tuesday night, that should be a great party and networking opportunity.
ABC Tech invites bloggers to RSVP by sending an email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 780-990-5874
Tuesday night is also the hack-a-thon being put on by Start-up Edmonton in conjunction with ABC Tech, apparently there’s some pretty cool prizes led by The City of Edmonton’s IT Branch. This will be another great opportunity to see our local programmer community strut their coding abilities. This will be cool and we’ll look to cover the action as well.
