Even if you didn’t book your ticket to Texas, the 2015 collaboration conference Collabosphere is one social media conversation you don’t want to miss Sept. 27-30. Here are 10 reasons Collabosphere is the only collaboration conference you’ll want to follow this year on Twitter.
1.5 million bats will be flying nearby because this year, Collabosphere will take place in the weird city of Austin, home to the largest urban bat colony in North America.
10,0000 square feet of collaboration space make up the venue, PGi Studios, located in the heart of downtown Austin (once known as iconic music venue La Zona Rosa).
100+ are estimated to attend this year’s Collabosphere, ranging from heads of IT at Fortune 500 companies to directors of advertising agencies.
94 percent of past attendees would recommend Collabosphere to a friend or colleague, and 91 percent rated speakers as “above average” or “excellent” in 2014.
68 cases of beer will be behind the bar to keep attendees occupied in between discussions on the future of business collaboration.
55 pounds of meat (and 20 pounds of brisket alone) will be served while Austin Artist to Watch Emily Wolfe plays live at PGi Studios.
36 speakers, panelists and collaboration gurus will present, including C-suite leaders and entrepreneurs, best-selling authors, a chronemics expert and one futurist.
34+ hours of keynote talks, panel discussions, networking and entertainment are on the agenda.
5 years in running Collabosphere, started in 2011, has gotten the greatest minds together on collaboration.
