Would you like to attend EventCamp in Chicago on February 11-13, 2011, but you don’t have the money to cover the registration and the hotel, in addition to your travel? Here is your solution!
Grosh Backdrops is offering a $500 scholarship to EventCamp 2011 to the EventCamp East Coast attendee who best answers the question below in 250 words or less:
“How will the events industry change in the next 10 years and what will you do to help it get there?”
So how do you enter?
Answer the question above as a response to the conversation in our event community by Thursday, November 11 at 12:00 Noon ET. Only EventCamp East Coast attendees may enter. Your answer will be ranked by two groups: a judging panel made up of three industry leaders and as crowdsourced by your peers through a poll made available on this website. Each judge will receive one vote, and the community as a whole will receive one vote. The attendee with the highest overall rank and the prize will be announced on Saturday, November 13 at the event!
And now, introducing your judging panel!
