Last night I attended Ideas on Tap at the Yaletown Brewpub.
“Ideas on Tap is a light business networking event for hi-tech professionals in Vancouver plus internet advertisers, social media marketers, bloggers, video game developers and other fans of the tech community.”
The turnout was great (I’d say about 200+ easy) and people were friendly and willing to chat about all things tech. Twitter was of course the topic of many conversations on account of the fact that so many of us locally in the industry have met online first and then face to face at events like this. Funny how it works these days, you meet online first and then in person.
I met @shanegibson,Â a local speaker, sales trainer and author and @johnchow, a local blogger who has gained international renown for his money making ideas and tactics over at www.johnchow.com.Â I also spoke withÂ @chrisbreikss and @cydbÂ of 6s Marketing (who hosts the event) and a ton of other cool locals including friends from Wallup Creative and more.
The event was a blast – always great to put faces to names and to meet new and interesting people in the social media / web marketing sphere.
So what’s next up for the local social mediaratzi? Everyone’s heading to Word Camp Whistler for the weekend. Unfortuneately I won’t be attending but may meet up with the gang for beers as I’m heading out the door myself to hit Whistler to do some boarding this weekend.
If you’re up there get in touch: @adamkillamÂ
