It used to be that mesh happened once a year. It was an annual “party” that we threw and then invited all of our friends.
As mesh has grown, we’ve expanded the mesh “footprint” by launching meshU, meshmarketing and, most recently, meshwest, which kicked off in Calgary in June.
In the process, mesh has gone from happening in May to happening thorough the year – with the exception of the summer when we try to get off the grid or, at least, be on the grid less often.
Over the next three months, there are three mesh events happening. The list includes:
1. meshwest (Edmonton) on Oct. 4, which features a keynote by Well.ca founder and CEO Ali Asaria. Well.ca is one of Canada’s biggest e-commerce success stories, and established itself as the leading online health and beauty store.
meshwest also features a great start-up panel featuring Jevon MacDonald (GoInstant), Maura Rodgers (Strutta) and Duleepa “Dups” Wijayawardhana (Empire Avenue). We’ve also got Ashley Casovan from the City of Edmonton talking about its embrace of open data. And then there’s a social media panel that will provide great real-world insight about how to execute operationally on a day-to-day basis.
2. meshmarketing in Toronto on Nov. 15. We’ll be unveiling the updated Web site and speakers soon so stayed tuned.
3. meshwest (Vancouver) on Dec. 5. Janice Diner will be doing a presentation that will deliver great insight into how to create a successful Facebook Page, along with lots of case studies of companies doing things right. Hiten Shah from KissMetrics will talk about digging into data to pull out intelligence needed to make smarter business decisions.
Needless to say, it will be a busy fall for the mesh gang but we’re looking forward to a great slate of speakers and programming.
Tickets for meshwest (Edmonton and Vancouver) can be purchased here. Tickets for meshmarketing will go on sale soon.
