Due to the overwhelming demand for Brand Camp ’10 our team has worked hard behind the scenes to accommodate the demand. To address this issue and to provide an opportunity for as many people who are interested in attending we were able to change rooms.
However there are limited seats available, once these seats are sold we have exhausted all options.
Listed below are the Voices you have the opportunity to hear:
What is Brand Camp? If I were to define Brand Camp I wouldn’t call it a conference I would call it a gathering of the minds. It is one of the most unique personal branding experiences in the Midwest region and it is happening on Friday, October 8th. (From more information: www.BrandCampU.com)
We have assembled a unique group of voices and practioneers in the business, branding and social media space many of which are new to Detroit. One of the key elements that separates Brand Camp from other interactive conferences is that we bring in CEOs and business owners that run million dollar corporations to bring you their business perspective from the C-Suite. If you run a $35M dollar business where you have to make payroll every week you provide a different perspective than someone who just directs the Marketing department in a small company.
Why was Detroit selected as the launching pad for Brand Camp besides it being my hometown? Detroit is the perfect location for Brand Camp. Detroit is a hard-working city and is known for it creativity from the days of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Motown.
Currently the unemployment rate in Michigan is 13.1%, which is higher than the national average (9.5%). The workplace has changed dramatically over the past five years but have you evolved with these changes? Are you prepared to work in a multi-generational workplace where location doesn’t matter and communication is rewired by the social web? These are some of the issues we will be tackling at Brand Camp. We will take a look at how a local economy (like Detroit) is impacted by government, media, technology, and entrepreneurial thinking.

What is ‘Globalocal’? It is a Global + local experience where you bring the two worlds together at Brand Camp you will get a taste of what this means.
There is no place in the country you will get the experience we are going to provide for the price. Early bird registration of $50 ends August 26th and the rate will then escalate to $100 for general registration.
