Vancouver Social Media Scene: Blogger Meetup, Third Tuesday, Launch Party3 and CaseCamp3

January 10th, 2008 @ 2:30pm (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

As the holiday season comes to a close, everyone’s buckling down with work, taxes and the idea of no more stat holidays until March. Fear not social media and internets enthusiasts of Vancouver because our hyperactive community is putting together a schwack-load of events to keep you networking and scoring drink tickets. Here’s what’s going on it Vancouver’s Social Media Scene in the coming month:

Launch Party Vancouver 3: “…a lively mixer for the city’s brightest entrepreneurs, tech junkies, and bloggers, who are doing it, have done it or want to make their ideas happen here.” [more info]
When: January 25th @ 5:30pm
Where: The Lamplighter in Gastown

Third Tuesday: “…a free monthly meetup for Vancouver area communications and marketing folks interested in learning/sharing more about the practical applications of social media in society, organizations, business and government.”
When: January 28th @ 7:00pm
Where: Opus Hotel Lounge

Vancouver Blogger Meetup: “A group of people in Vancouver interested in blogging – from beginners to experts. We meet once a month, usually around the middle of the month.”
When: January 30th @ 7:00pm
Where: Century Restaurant and Bar venue updated to Our Town on Broadway

CaseCamp3: “…a marketing unconference open to anyone. Presenters share case studies of their work, with the goal of creating a commons for discussion, learning and networking.” This is the latest “camp” that I’m aware of and sounds pretty neat. It’s marketing oriented so perhaps it’s a perfect forum for all those Third Tuesday-ers. CCV3 is also looking for sponsors so visit the website to find out more.
When: February, 20th 2008
Where: (TBD)

Stay tuned for more information about each of these events as they happen. Also, as it pertains to local bloggers doing cool things, be sure to set your VCRs to record our local contestants who are a part of the national “Blogger Team” on the CBC’s “Test the Nation” on January 20th. If anything else is going on and you’d like people to know, drop me line or leave a comment.
