Mesh is coming West to Calgary

It’s a great time to be a Calgarian.

The Digital Alberta Awards on June 6th are right around the corner (and nominations close today) and the C100 is coming to town for AccelerateAB on July 13th.

And now the folks behind the Mesh Conference (May 25/26 in Toronto) are coming to town to host their first meshwest event on June 8th.

What’s meshwest? I’ll let the five mesh founders explain:

When we started mesh in 2006, our goal was to create a Canadian event where people could discuss how the Web is changing how we live, work and play. It’s taken a while but we’re excited about taking mesh to Western Canada, starting with a one-day event in Calgary. The move to Western Canada reflects how communities across the country are enthusiastically embracing and leveraging the Web. Like mesh, meshwest is focused on providing insight and stimulating conversations about media, society, marketing and business. Led by opinion leaders and entrepreneurs, meshwest is an opportunity to have thought-provoking and engaging conversations in which the attendees are involved as much as the speakers.

If you are excited about the Web, looking to gain more insight and enhance your knowledge of what’s happening now and what’s over the horizon, you should attend meshwest.

The speaker lineup is solid and in addition to the five founders you’ll hear Shopify’s Tobias Lutke, Real Ventures Mark MacLeod, BCIC’s Danny Robinson, and ICUC’s Keith Bilous.

Early-bird prices are available until May 11th – register online.
