Since my last
desperate begging funding drive, several companies and organisations have leapt to support LocalGovCamp, namely:
Many thanks to them. They join those who had already stuck their hands in their pockets:
We’re still not quite there yet though, and if anyone out there still has a bit of marketing budget they’d like to lavish on the coolest (ok, joint coolest with the FutureGov stuff…) event in local government, please do get in touch.
LocalGovCamp isn’t far away – just over a month. So far 150 tickets have gone and we have another 50 which we are looking to distribute in a new way to get a few different faces along!
So we’ll have 200 of the most innovative and creative people in local government in one place, on a Saturday, ready to talk about how we can improve the way we do things. It’s going to be ace.
One thing we do need though is money. Bringing the event out of London made finding a free venue impossible, and so we face a bigger bill than usual from the get-go. On top of that we have some extra money to find for some unexpected expenses.
So, if you would like to help this event out and ensure it’s the success it ought to be, please get in touch with any offers of cash you might have spare.
- £250 gets your logo on the website, the ability to bring a pop up stand and some marketing literature with you, and lots of vocal thanks throughout the day.
- £500 gets you all the above plus a logo on the t-shirt.
- Anything substantial over the £500 mark means I’ll also give you a piggy back around for the day (or something).
Thanks go to those who have already put their hands in their pockets: the MoreOpen fund, Huddle, LGIU and Podnosh. Also Digital Birmingham who have helped massively with organising things. Oh, and Kind of Digital of course 😉
LocalGovCamp is coming back to Birmingham on the 18th June!
200 of the most innovative and creative people in the local government sector will be coming together on a Saturday to talk about making things better – sometimes with technology, sometimes not.
LocalGovCamp is an unconference – basically a conference that’s fun. There’s no agenda until we sort it out on the day – which means no keynoters, no grandstanding and just good conversations.
Grab your ticket on Eventbrite while you can.
We’re also still looking for sponsors, so do get in touch if you’d like to help out.
