Today, June 5, is the first day of LeWeb London 2013, the two-day biz-tech fest that nearly 900 people have signed up to be part of, along with speakers, sponsors, journos and official bloggers. In that latter group, I’m one.
The programme is terrific, and I’m really looking forward to being part of it all over the next two days. Thanks to the magic of WordPress scheduled posts, you’ll read this post at about the time on Wednesday morning I should be coming out of Westminster tube station for the short walk to Central Hall Westminster, the venue, and joining the queue for badges.
I won’t be doing much blogging, if any, while I’m at LeWeb. For live blogging of the event, I recommend you follow Adam Tinworth – who’s also an official blogger – who will be doing a lot of that on his blog.
Keep an eye on the speakers’ Google+ Hangouts schedule – you’ll be able to see live video of some of the sessions.
I will be listening a lot, though, and tweeting, instagramming, G+ing, maybe even a Vine or two; plus recording audio, and capturing a great deal of input for a review I plan to write next week, including a commentary for the business podcast I co-host with Shel Holtz. Some interviews with interesting people are possible, too.
Also, this Friday June 7, I’ll be speaking on Marc Wright’s live Simply TV show with some impressions of LeWeb that are relevant for internal communicators.
If you’ll be one of the 900 or so LeWebers and would like to connect, well, lets’ do that. Mind you, I have a feeling direct SMS or Twitter will be more effective communication channels. Or, if you’re using the neat Bizzabo event app, try that.
In any case, I’m looking forward to a terrific event.
