Well, since we all are in the ‘Mapping’ industry I wasn’t sure if anyone would really need a map to the event.  But just in case, here you go.

Your Ignite Spatial NoCo 2.0 team!

Well our first event is complete and in the books!  Can’t say it went off without a hitch…ie killing the power in the room for 20 mins…but all in all it was a great evening!  Thank you to all of you that attended.  It wouldn’t have been a success without you there.  In the end we had close to 190 people show up and over 60 people watching live from around the world via our live stream.  We have been sending out surveys to those that attended the event to get some suggestions and feed back for our next one.  Please feel free to comment on our blog with ideas.  We’ll be happy to take those into consideration for Ignite Spatial NoCo 2.0.  If you are interested in reliving the event or if you didn’t make it and wanted to watch the fun, below are the links to the media relating to the evenings festivities.

Special Guest

Posted: April 28, 2010 in Uncategorized

We broke the news earlier on twitter, but figured we should blog about it as well.

We have gotten a super awesome guest speaker for the event. So, there will be an additional talk after break but we promise it will be worth it.

So, aside from being just over a week away, we got you all a big name guest speaker to be excited about.

Have fun and we look forward to meeting you all next week!

Thank you all again!  The response has been amazing for our first event and it’s less than 2 weeks away!  Unfortunately, we couldn’t accommodate everyone that wanted to attend.  So to assure that you make it in for our next event we are organizing a mailing list.  If you have tickets for the current event or are a sponsor we have your contact information.  But if you are one of those folks that wanted to attend but didn’t get a chance to register for a ticket before they sold out, please send us your e-mail information.  We will add you to our mailing list for the next event.

This will assure that you are notified about the dates and details for Ignite Spatial NoCo #2.  Of course we will blitz Twitter, LinkedIn and the GISCO boards prior to #2, so you’ll be sure to see it.
