We are booked out with 275 RSVPs on Eventbrite. This is a record crowd for MSB!
Sorry to those of you missing out, but next time remember to RSVP early. Please come to our other MKW event on Saturday 7th May. RSVP here for the Silicon Collective Innovation Day. Please click through to Eventbrite page there and reserve your FREE ticket. It is a requirement of City of Melbourne that all MKW attendees book via the respective Eventbrite pages setup for each event. That event is bound to sell out too.
You can follow the proceedings live on Periscope. Download the App and follow AthulaBogoda. We might have more live streamers on the night. Katch.me cloud service where we used to store the live streams is no more. Have no fear, we will upload the live streams to our Silicon Beach TV YouTube Channel. Just be patient as this can take a couple of days.
Video and Photos on the night – creative people wanted
City of Melbourne video crew will be on site to film parts of the proceedings. See Notice below.
In addition to our live streaming, we would like to have high quality photos and video footage of the event for our YouTube channel. If you are a good photographer or videographer, please bring your gear and take some pics/videos of the night. Appropriate credit will be given to you.
If you could help the organisers out on the night, it will be really appreciated. This is going to be our biggest event ever and we need helpers to –
1) sign in people via the Eventbrite sign-in app (downloadable to your phone)
2) social media support during the event – tweeting, tweeting photos and uploading pics to meetup.com etc
3) taking photos, videos, live streaming etc
4) just helping out and being an awesome ambassador for the #MostLiveableStartupCity. You will be helping to showcase Melbourne to the world.
Just come in a bit early (around 5.30 or 6) and talk to us.
