#FinCon11 BOF: Lead Your Own Session or Discussion at the Financial Blogger Conference
In addition to the 2 tracks scheduled at the Financial Blogger Conference, we’ll have rooms open for BoF sessions at different times.
BoFs, or Birds of a Feather, will be an unscheduled track, organized by YOU the day of the conference.
Anyone attending the Financial Blogger Conference will have the opportunity to lead a session on any topic related to the conference.
Yes, that means you!
BoF Rooms at the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg
- O’Hare/Midway Rooms – Saturday 1:30pm to 5pm
- O’Hare/Midway Rooms – Sunday 8:30am to 12noon
How do you sign up? On Friday and Saturday, as you go through check-in look for the sign up sheet for BoF Rooms. There will be a blank grid paper board with 30-minute slots. Fill your name and topic in one of the slots and just make sure you show up about 5-10 minutes before your session. It might also help to tweet out your session topic/time and use the hashtag #FINCON11 for a little more exposure.
The BoF rooms will seat about 100 people and a whiteboard or flip chart will be available for you to use. Sorry, no AV equipment will be setup in the BoF rooms. They are relatively small, so this shouldn’t be a problem.
As a courtesy to the people attending BoF sessions, please don’t get up there and pitch your services. 🙂
If you’d like to organize or see a BoF session at the conference, feel free to comment below and get the conversation started. However, you cannot reserve a spot until your check-in at the conference registration table. Thanks!
