Like many other conferences this year, the LavaCon Conference is going virtual…with a twist.
Conference organizer and STC Chicago sponsor, Jack Molisani, says, “We were supposed to be in New Orleans this year, but because of Covid we’re going 100% virtual. That said, if we can’t get to New Orleans, let’s bring New Orleans to us! We were supposed to do a live jazz parade down Bourbon Street. Instead, I’ve hired seven piece brass band in New Orleans to play over Zoom, while attendees dance around the home office or dining room—playing a tambourine that will be included in the ‘experience box’ they get in the mail. One of my attendees summarized my whole conference in a sentence:
‘One of the attractions of LavaCon to me is how sassy (for the lack of a better term) it is. It gets big names from major companies covering really important stuff, but there is also a sense of playfulness.’ L.R., Senior Content Developer
“Some of the ‘big names’ speaking this year are from Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Twitter, Netflix, and NBCUniversal media and more! Our program this year is literally a Who’s Who of content professions. If there is an upside to going virtual, it’s that we’ve been able to score some amazing speakers that we might not have gotten if they had to take time away from work and fly to a conference.”
Jack adds, “I have to say that after six months of sheltering in place, I miss social interaction. I miss my STC peeps! If you can join us, register using the referral code #ChicagoSTC for $100 off conference tuition. See you in October!”
LavaCon UX, the virtual conference on content strategy and tech comm management, will be 23-25 October 2020.
