W3G 2012 is almost upon us. Where almost means it’s tomorrow. Here’s some handy and hopefully helpful hints to make sure you get the most out of the W3G experience.
Where Do I Go?
W3G 2012 is at Campus London, or the Google Campus as it’s affectionately but incorrectly known.
5 Bonhill Street
When Do I Need To Get There?
Doors open at 9.00 AM, Wednesday October 24th. 2012. We’ll be starting at 9.40 AM. Sharp. We’ve got a packed program and a whole lot of stuff to get through. We also have a hard stop at 5.00 PM so, hopefully, there’ll be no late start and no overrunning.
We’re using EventBrite to handle tickets for this year’s event, as we have done in the past. Please make sure you either print your ticket and bring it with you or use the iOS or Android mobile app. As this year’s geo-beers are offsite and not in the venue, you’ll need to show a ticket to be united with your beer. No ticket, no beer.
Yes, there will be the time honoured tradition of post conference geo-beers, courtesy this year of Nokia.
Hash Tags? Social Media? Photos?
If past year’s W3G events are anything to go by, there’ll be a strong back channel going on on Twitter. If you’re tweeting, use the
#w3g hash tag so we can all follow the tweet-stream. If you take any pictures, likewise tag ‘em;
w3g would be a good idea for the tag we think.
Yes there’ll be wifi. But seeing as everyone these days tends to come to conferences armed with (at least) one laptop, (at least) one mobile phone and (at least) one tablet, it’s fair to say the wifi will probably give up on us. Please try and use only one device at a time on the venue’s wifi and switch wifi off on everything else. You might also want to enable tethering on your mobile or bring along a mifi just in case, though we haven’t tried out 3G data coverage at the venue.
Whatever you want. No, wait. W3G is an informal event so dress informally. Dress in fancy dress if you really have to but please, please, please do actually get dressed. Nudity might be frowned upon.
