Now that summer seems to have gone past (if this weather is any indication), we begin to look forward to the Fall which brings us a few events throughout Vancouver for both the PR Professional and the Teckie Professional. The following is just a short list of some of the events coming up in September.
The Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) of Vancouver has 2 events coming up. The first is the Stretching Out Summer – Season Kick Off Social being held on September 9th at George Ultra Lounge in Yaletown at 5pm. I’m actually excited about attending this and checking out venue. This event is free of charge.
Secondly on September 25th at 7:30am CPRS has their Speaker Series Breakfast (sponsored by my employer, Marketwire and Cision). This breakfast will have Cathy Allen speak about Public Relations in American Politics. The event will be held at the Metropolitan Hotel.
The International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Vancouver will be holding their Annual September Kick-Off: Fall into Autumn with Professional Communicators being held on September 23rd at Steamworks Brewing Company in Gastown beginning at 5:30pm.
I always enjoy the IABC Events, so I’m looking forward to attending this one and running into some familiar faces.
For the Teckies a few more events are happening this month.
Launch Party Vancouver 5 is coming September 18th and will be held at Unwine’d. For all those not familiar with Launch Party,
Launch Party Vancouver is 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. The goal of the event is to connect BC’s growing community of Internet and new media leaders with investors and other trailblazers across Canada and abroad.
You can register for the event via Eventbrite.
Of course we can’t forget BarCamp which will held September 27-28 most likely being held on Granville Island. Based on their Wikipedia site;
BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees.
Currently the event is “sold out”, and you can register for their waiting list. I’m currently on their waiting list, though I have been told I should be able to get into the event. You can find out more on their wiki site. I’m excited about participating in the WordCamp and Photo sessions.
Of course there will be the usual Third Tuesday Vancouver and Vancouver Blogger Meetup scheduled in September as well. This is looking like a busy month and I’m sure just the start of things for the remaining of the year.
