What is the Spring Conference Event?
BarCamp is an open-format conference where everyone is welcome to speak on any topic they’re passionate about. Note that sessions aren’t scheduled in advance; the agenda is created the day of the event in the spirit of an “un-conference.” You can see the schedule of events here.
More than 300 business and technology enthusiasts typically participate in BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton’s Conference events. Approximately 40 local authorities speak on business and technology issues ranging from Video Marketing to LinkedIn to Search Engine Optimization Rock Stars to How to Write Online Press Releases.
The topics for the conference depend on you. Just show up on April 12th and 13th, 2014. If you have anything you’d like to share, sign up a the event to speak. Everyone is invited. Here are the guidelines:
