EVENTS101 is a one-of-a-kind workshop for people who plan public festivals, events and other programs. As accessible and informative for new or volunteer event producers as it is to seasoned event professionals, Events101 delivers in-depth educational sessions on the nuts and bolts of community and public event planning.
The 2011 EVENTS101 Conference, at the beautiful Sherwood Community Center in the City of Fairfax, is jointly produced by Celebrate Fairfax, Inc. and the Virginia Recreation and Park Society Northern Service Area.
EVENTS101 consists of two separate days of Workshops with the incredibly applicable theme: Is There an App for That?
All workshops are led by highly experienced event producers and industry experts. EVENTS101 provides the kind of education and networking one would expect at a national convention with the benefits of being right in your backyard.
EVENTS101 consists of two days of outstanding education and networking for event planners of all types.
Day 1 is a comprehensive look at producing events in our Web 2.0 World, where web-based systems, grass roots marketing and social media come together. With a focus on the use of online platforms, conference participants will obtain a strong understanding of how to move their events forward to new levels!
Day 2 consists of more than 25 concurrent workshops and round table topics, concentrating on all aspects of event production. Fundraising, public relations, operational planning, volunteer management, cash handling, booking entertainment, and many more event planning subjects will be available to participants.
