On April 8,9 & 10, SAP is trying something unique, something different, yes, we're experimenting! We're holding a world wide marketing community meeting - Virtually! That's right, no conference center, no travel, no second rate hotels, no second rate food... all from the comfort of our offices and homes, we plan on bringing the entire community of SAP marketers together to get educated, to get focused and to network. How are we going to do this? Well, first off we're going to be using Unisfair as our virtual conference center, where everyone, regardless of geography and time zone can gather.
If you don't know Unisfair you should check it out. While we're convinced that we will run into some technical glitches using them the concept of a virtual event environment is the right one for a gathering of over 2000 marketers. Its also missing some functionality that they need to be more full service such as a true blogging platform. And boy will there be blogging. I offered to help with the content flow so I went with what I know best, the blogosphere. We've invited some top tier bloggers and speakers to help drive knowledge transfer to the SAP Marketing Community. Among those participating are:
We have room for one or two more so if you are interested let me know! (Don't know if there is more budget but that I can check!).
I'm hoping we can build a great body of third party thought leadership which the SAP Marketing community will come to draw upon regularly even after the event is complete.
I love grand experiments! Experimentation and Failure Breeds Success!
