Podcamp Boston 6 Hotel Group Rate

We’ve finally got news on the hotel front. We were able to secure a group rate for the Cambridge Marriott in Boston, which is right around the
corner from MS NERD. If you need a room, book it before September 9th. We have a limited number reserved under this rate and
after the 9th you will NOT be able to get this rate. Period. So if you think you may want one, now’s the time. :)

What happens at Podcamp? Well….

Singing… (video by Joyce Bettencourt)

Some goofing off…

…oh, no wait, Justin was just being awkward for the very first Podcamp Boston, don’t mind him.

Really what happens is a lot of sharing knowledge and learning.  The majority of people who attend are new to the world of podcasting, social media and digital media creation.  Last year 75% of the people who attended Podcamp Boston 4 were new to the event.  They had questions ranging from the beginner level to the advanced.  The more advanced usually teach and share what they know and what can make it easier for others to refine their knowledge and move forward and it’s like that all weekend long.

There *are* parties but we keep them pretty low key.  Though this year’s is getting me pretty excited.  Yeah I’m still teasing, because we’re still hammering out the details.

The hotel contract is almost settled so I should be posting the URL specific for Podcamp Boston 5 for bookings in the next couple of days when the hotel gets the page set up.  I’m waiting to post the details in a separate post.

Most of all people have been asking about what sessions are going on.  If you want to know the details of sessions registered so far, click this shiny link.  If you want to register to present, click this shiny link instead.

Oh and we’re looking for sponsors!  If you’re company would like to help us sponsor the after party, please get in touch!

Do you have questions about what happens at Podcamp? Email us! Get in touch and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have!  I very much hope to see you at Podcamp Boston 5 on September 25-26th, 2010 at the Microsoft N.E.R.D Center.  Year 5 is going to be a great celebration of how far things have come and we’d love to have you join us for the fun.
