We are planning a Podcamp Hawaii here. We are also using it as a demonstration project for how to plan a conference using the fabulous (and mostly free) tools of social media. You can read the Step 1 post here.
Set up a Logo Shop to Sell T-Shirts
Prepare Your Sponsorship Packages
Use a Social Web Service to Collect Registrations
Create Badges for Others to Post on Their Sites
The important takeaway of this blog series is that you can use these tools for any type of conference. Even if you choose to just use one or two, you are already ahead of the game when it comes to traditional event planning. So please tell me, out of the many tools mentioned in these first two steps, which one)s) do you think you’ll incorporate into planning your next event? And if you’re still holding out, don’t worry, There’s more to come!
UPDATE: I changed the title of this post and the previous one to better reflect the content. Used to be “Planning a Web 2.0 Conference.”
