First thing’s first – we are nearly finished with the list of speakers (but there are still few names to announce). The final list will comprise of at least 35 professionals that will cover social media from all possible perspectives. Social startups from Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. Big agencies. International companies. Media. NGOs. Specialized social networks. And all that for free, from the people for the people :) The demand has been high – over 250 people already announced their wish to come. First 100 of you got the confirmation – and we will send a wave of another 50 confirmations tomorrow. You can still register – the last wave of registrations will be closed next Monday (26th) – there will be a waiting list as we know some of the confirmed participants might cancel.

And because we want our event to be really “social” and we like that barcamp feeling, we would like to invite those of you who have received attendance confirmation to join our Facebook group BabelCamp. Here we hope that participants from Brno can offer accommodation to those coming from elsewhere, make plans to arrive at the event together, or simply discuss whatever else you are interested in.

We plan to have not just a great event, but there is also a special surprise – a social beer contest. What does it mean? Czech Republic is a country with the world’s highest consumption of beer per person per year. So it’s no wonder we take beer really seriously – and it is true when we speak about marketing too. As beer drinking is definitely a truly social activity, breweries are among companies understanding the importance of Facebook (or other social media)… So lets check them out! We call for breweries brave enough to test their social media presence! Come to BabelCamp and show the audience what you do in social media! Bring your case studies, charts, numbers, amaze us with the real results of what you did with your FB apps! The audience will watch you trying and then vote for the winner – who will get the Social Beer Champion Award!

The entry fee for a brewery is just one keg of beer :) and the reward for taking part in voting is a free beer :) We already have a couple of confirmed participants, but we hope to see more of you!
